One of the highest payrolls in baseball hasn’t bought the New York Mets much certainty. As of right now, the Mets are once again looking up at the Braves in the MLB standings as they try to pursue a National League East Division title. New York may be finally able to gain some traction during its current six-game homestand. The Mets have played 11 more road games than home games so far this season.

The Phillies are currently on a two-game losing streak and have sunk to fourth place in the division. The Phillies are 5-5 over the past 10 games.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets Betting Prediction
Nola has been one of the more consistent starting pitchers for MLB teams over the past few seasons. Phillies vs Mets betting shows that New York’s offense hasn’t been able to produce consistently. That lack of offensive production is a bigger issue because the Mets’ pitching hasn’t lived up to their expectations either.
Philadelphia will grab a win over the Mets as a small road favorite. New York hasn’t yet shown it can be the team that can produce a lengthy winning streak. Despite Carrasco’s struggles, this is one of the MLB games Wednesday night where it is worth taking a look at the under. Nola can pitch deep into the game, and if Carrasco pitches well, not many runs may be scored.
