MONDAY NIGHT PHILLIES @ METS TOTAL
NY Mets vs. Philadelphia,
04/15/2019 19:05 EDT,
Score: 7 - 6
Total: +106/+7½ Over
Two elite pitchers will take the mound at Citizens Bank Park Monday night, but I think the bookmakers have made a mistake on the total here, setting it a tad too low.
Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola (1-0, 6.46 ERA) has been lit up in back-to-back starts to Washington, surrendering a total of 11 runs (10 earned) on 12 hits, five of them homers) over 9 1/3 innings of work. On top of that, Philadelphia's bullpen has struggled all season, and it won't help that the Phillies played a 14-inning marathon at Miami on Sunday.
Mets' right-hander Noah Syndergaard (1-1, 4.74 ERA) gave up four runs on seven hits in seven innings of a 9-6 win over Minnesota last time out. Last season, Syndergaard went 1-2 with a 5.75 ERA in four starts against the Phillies.
8* play on OVER.
