Mets vs Phillies Betting Outlook

The teams combined for just eight hits on Tuesday, five by the Phillies and three by the Mets. Philadelphia’s JT Realmuto was the only player with multiple hits as he went 2 for 4.

Brandon Nimmo’s solo home run in the fifth inning for the Mets broke a scoreless tie and proved to be the game-winning hit.

Edwin Diaz came off the bereavement and got the save, striking out the side in the ninth inning while allowing one hit.

The Mets haven’t won the season series with the Phillies since 2018. Philadelphia 29-20 over the last four seasons.

Mets vs Phillies Injury Report

Phillies high-leverage reliever Corey Knebel is on the COVID-19 IL and out until he is cleared to leave quarantine. Knebel has one of the Phillies’ two saves in the young season.

Girardi said they still think Corey Knebel has the flu and feels better today than yesterday but team is awaiting the results of another test. If Knebel tests negative, he’d be eligible to return right away

Outfielder Mickey Moniak (wrist) is out indefinitely for Philadelphia.

Mets reliever Jake Reed (oblique) is on the 10-day injured list.

Mets vs Phillies Prediction

Both starting pitchers have a long track record of success against the opponent. However, it’s hard to ignore Scherzer’s impressive string of performances over the years in Philadelphia.

The Mets are the way to go at even money.

The Pick: Mets moneyline (+100)
