MLB FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest MLB trends, the Mets are 5-1 in their last six trips to Philadelphia and 4-1 in their last five games versus a right-handed starter. They're also 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win, 5-2 in their last seven games overall, and 4-1 in their last five games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. On the other side, the Phillies are 2-6 in their last eight games overall, 2-5 in their last seven games as a home favorite, and 1-4 in their last five home games. They're also 1-4 in their last five divisional games and 1-6 in their last seven games with the total set at 7.0-8.5. Roy Halladay had a rough spring and then promptly only lasted 3.1 innings in his first outing of the year, a 9-2 loss to the Braves in Atlanta. Until Halladay shows any resemblance of his former self, it's safe to bet against the Phillies (especially against a team in the Mets that started the first week strong).
MLB FREE PICK: NEW YORK METS +102
