Mets vs Phillies Prediction

Sports Chat Place

The staff at Sports Chat Place is going with the upset here, picking the Mets to take the middle game of the three-game set. New York is starting Steven Matz in this matchup, and the team at Sports Chat Place believes he should lead the Mets to another win, as they are 4-1 in his last five starts on the road.

Picks and Parlays

Similarly, the crew at Picks and Parlays is also taking the Mets because they like Matz on the mound tonight. The Phillies are starting Nick Pivetta, who has really struggled recently, to the tune of a 9.45 ERA through his last three starts. The team at Picks and Parlays believes the difference in the starting pitchers' recent performance should give New York the edge.

Tony's Picks

It's a clean sweep for the underdogs as Tony Tellez is going with the Mets too. Tellez cited Pivetta's recent struggles against the Mets as the primary reason he's taking New York to win outright.

All three experts are picking the underdog Mets (+106) to win outright and take a 2-0 lead in the series.
