MLB - Phillies @ Mets
(MLB) Philadelphia vs. NY Mets, 05/31/2023 7:10 PM, Score: 1 - 4
Total: 8.50 | -120.00 Over
Result: Loss
I couldn't tell you who's going to win this game, but I can believe this will be a much high scoring game than game 1 of this series. Carrasco is on the mound for the Mets and he is allowing two runs per inning on average in the last 16 innings played with a season average of 6.75 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 15 strikeouts in 25 innings. The Phillies have Aaron Nola on the mound today, and though he's much more likely to have more bats struck out the last 3 games he's played (21) he's also been risky and has been hit more than Carrasco (Nola has allowed 18 hits and 11 runs in the last 20 innings). It's tough to strike out the Mets bats, so I see this being a back and forth affair, with both starting pitchers getting hit early and often to generate a fair amount of runs in the first five innings, and ending the game with more than 8 runs

Official Play: Over 8.5 Runs

Side Bet: Nola over 5.5 hits allowed
