Today’s matchup is between the New York Mets (21-26) and the Philadelphia Phillies (23-23). The Mets have won 2 of their last 5 games and the Phillies have won 1 of their last 5 games. The last series these two teams played against each other, the series ended in a tie two wins apiece.

The Mets are starting Rick Porcello (RHP), on the mound who is 1-4 in 9 starts on the season pitching a 6.07 ERA, 2.19 FIP, .340 wOBA, K% of 18.9%, BB% of 5.3%, 87.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.56 WHIP in 43 innings pitched.

The Phillies are starting Jake Arrieta (RHP), who is 3-4 in 8 starts with a 5.54 ERA, 4.59 FIP, .343 wOBA, K% of 17.1%, BB% of 9.2%, 89 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.56 WHIP in 39 innings pitched.

The Mets are the 16th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Phillies are 28th.

On the hitting side, the Mets have a .351 wOBA and a .354 OBP. The Phillies have a .339 wOBA and a .344 OBP. The Mets have 66 HRs this season while the Phillies have 63 HRs.

Im not high on Rick Porvello in this one and think he can be exploited in this but im not preticulary high on the phillies after their recent string of losses so I'll leaning to +1.5 runline instead of the Phillies ML but moneyline still has value.
