It is also the last game of a 10-game road trip for the Phillies. Those who bet on MLB action may want to back the Mets simply for the fact that it is the last game of a long road trip for Philadelphia.
MLB betting odds on New York might be attractive but gamblers who bet on MLB action always have to be careful about going against the Phillies on the road. Philadelphia has simply been great on the road in MLB betting this season. The World Champs are fairly priced on the road and they have been rewarding those who bet on MLB action all year. It is simply amazing how well the Phillies have done on the road this season.
MLB betting trends do favor the Mets though. Before this three-game series began the Mets had won 13 of the last 20 overall against the Phillies as MLB betting stats show. The Mets had also won 7 of the last 10 at home against Philadelphia as sports betting statistics show. Earlier this season the Mets continued their home success against the Phillies as they won 7-5 and 1-0 as MLB betting results indicate.
There are not many MLB betting trends on the total in this matchup. Before this series began the teams had gone 9-9-2 versus the MLB betting total at the sportsbook and 5-5 in the last 10 meetings at New York.
Philadelphia has been winning this season versus the MLB betting odds with an offense that ranks in the Top 5 in the league. Raul Ibanez has simply been fantastic for the Phillies so far this season. He has added to a lineup that already had Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard. The Phillies pitching has struggled somewhat but they are healthy now and Cole Hamels looks great again.
The Mets have scuffled so far this season. Other than Johan Santana there has not been a lot to like about the Mets. They are still in the mix in MLB betting but with their talent they should be a lot better.
