Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets Baseball Betting 9/7/19
Posted by: Charlie Smith
At the beginning of the season, the Phillies were the hot thing on the MLB futures board. The arrival of Bryce Harper with his mega-bucks contract caused immediate World Series predictions. Contrarily the Mets were among the teams that were ignored as a possible baseball betting contender. New York has emerged as one of the surprise teams in the National League. Starting pitching has been the Mets ticket into contention. Now the question for both the Phillies and Mets is if they can muster enough consistency for the stretch run. In turn, they are in wild-card playoff reach.

Fashion the Phillies have won five of their last nine games. As a result, Philadelphia is 71-65 with only 63 overs. Run production and the bullpen are a perpetual problem. To show the Phils rank 14th for runs scored and 20th for bullpen ERA.
