New York Mets vs Philadelphia Phillies: prediction for the MLB game
New York Mets
The New York Mets are having a good week. As a result of two victories over the Phillies (8:6 and 8:2), they regained second place in the National League standings with a win percentage of 0.646. But Buck Showalter's team has played more games than their direct opponents in the top three and may well lose their position again. This gives the Mets additional motivation to win today.
The Philadelphia Phillies have been playing poorly lately and have lost four of their last five games. Before losing to the Mets twice, Joe Girrardi's men suffered two defeats to the Atlanta Braves (5:6, 4:8). The Phillies are currently at 0.447 and occupy the 10th line in the National League standings. Zach Wheeler (3-3) will take the mound for the final game of the series.
The Mets won the first inning in 4 of the last 5 home games.
In the 3 previous meetings in New York, the teams overcame the total of 9 runs.
The Mets are on a roll, and they have won four straight home games. In addition, New York rarely loses to the Phillies, and the visitors look out of momentum. When they play away from home, they struggle to deliver successful results because they lack firepower for the final innings. We predict that the Mets will get a landslide victory in the series finale.
