Trend points to the over in the Mets-Phillies rubber match
Wed, Apr 7th 12:07pm EDT
The over/under for tonight's rubber match against the Philadelphia Phillies is 8.5 runs, per BettingPros consensus odds. New York's David Peterson is 6-2 with a 3.44 ERA in 10 games (nine starts) as a rookie last year. In his lone appearance against the Phillies on September 7th, he lasted just two innings (three hits, four walks) and allowed five runs. Peterson went more than six innings just once in his starts last year. Philadelphia's Aaron Nola allowed two runs in 6 ⅔ innings on Opening Day. He made one costly mistake, a two-run homer to Pablo Sandoval. Nola may want to stay away from Pete Alonso who has three home runs in 20 career at-bats against him. Aside from Alonso, the rest of the Mets have three combined home runs in 150 at-bats.
