MLB Betting Trends
The Mets have lost in six straight series openers and they are 1-5 in Matz’ last six road starts.
The Phillies have lost seven straight NL East games and four straight series openers.
Matz has been steady at getting 5-6 innings of work in of varying damage. He has allowed at least three runs in four straight starts. Eflin has been much stronger and more consistent. He has allowed two earned runs or less in seven of his last nine starts. Matz has faced Philly twice and struggled in both outings, giving up nine runs over six innings of work. Eflin had one poor start against the Mets as well, but he has a 2.13 home ERA this season. I like him and the Phillies to end their losing streak today.
MLB Prediction: Philadelphia Phillies -125
