MLB Free Betting Pick Mets vs Phillies

4/11 MLB Free Betting Pick Mets vs Phillies 

New York Mets -137   Philadelphia Phillies +127   O/U 8

The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies play game 2 of their 3 game series in Philadelphia’s Citizen’s Bank Ballpark. The Mets won 87 games last season and snagged a Wild Card spot but lost to the Giants in the 1 game playoff. They are expected to battle The Nationals in the NL East this season but in our opinion look like only Wild Card contenders again. In the first 6 games of the season they are 3-3, scoring 5 or more runs in their wins and 2 or less in their losses. The total is 3-2-1. On the other side the Philadelphia Phillies had a miserable 2016 finishing 20 games under 500. That was however 9 games better than 2016 and our expectations on them this year is they will have a fantastic season if they can win 80 games and just keep improving with their roster of young rising players. The Phillies have also started 3-3 on the season. They started 1-4 until impressively taking the last 2 games of a 3 game series against Washington. The Total is 3-3 in those games.

For This RideTheHotHand.com free pick we are going after the money line. This bet is all about how bad Clay Bucholz is.  Forget the Mets have Matt Harvey pitching and he is a fantastic pitcher who will hold the Philadelphia offense down. Bucholz was always a serviceable pitcher for the Red Sox but he hasn’t been very good for years. He has always been helped by the Red Sox having a fantastic offense and was more obvious last year than any of his career. He repeatedely won games giving up 4-6 runs because the bats would bail him out. He doesnt have that luxury in Philadelphia and probably won’t win 10 games. He lost his first start of the season giving up 4 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks through 5 innings before manager Pete Mackanin mercifully pulled him before he could inflict more damage. Matt Harvey will have no problem in this one and Bucholz will be 0-2. THE PICK: METS -137
