Likely Pitching Matchup: Ben Lively vs. Matt Harvey


According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Mets are -113 money line favorites to beat the Phillies, who have odds of +126 to pull off the upset tonight on the road. As for the total, it currently sits at 8 runs.


The Mets opened as -125 money line favorites but their odds dropped to -113, while the Phillies’ odds hit the board at +105 but was bet down to +103. The total, meanwhile, is now listed at 8 at the majority of online sportsbooks after hitting the board at 8.5.

As of this writing, 62% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Mets to beat the Phillies on the money line. Meanwhile, 68% of the betting tickets are on the over.


Even with Gabe Kapler’s managerial issues to start the year, I like the Phillies in this spot today. Harvey posted a 4.50 ERA in Grapefruit League play and didn’t inspire much belief that he’ll figure things out. Dating back to last season, the Mets are just 8-20 in Harvey’s last 28 starts versus National League East rivals and are 1-4 in his last five outings overall. On the other side, Lively pitched well this spring and if Kapler can slow down on burning through his relief pitchers, the Phillies should pull off the small upset tonight.
