I like the OVER here as both these studs are better then the early numbers indicate but the humidity is up and it's cloudy and windy in Philly tonight. Cespedes is the only bat that has hit for a lot of power for the Mets against Nova in the past and he's not in obviously. I think this could be a great pitching duel between two all stars that aren't happy with their early season starts but that doesn't mean either one of these squads can't put up a surplus of runs once the iffy bullpens start hurling.
My Pick: Under 9.5
- 59 Agree
Both teams can put runs on the board however his boys let him down in the game he lost. He is pitching well with his 4.74 ERA and if Nola didn't get the support he's gotten he wouldn't have a W yet.
My Pick: New York +107 & Over 7.5
- 68 Agree

CBS: Lagares' Heads-Up Baserunning Helps Mets Beat Phillies 7-6
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Juan Lagares scored from second base on Michael Conforto's hard grounder in the 11th inning and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-6 on Monday night.
Lagares led off with an infield single against Pat Neshek (0-1), and Brandon Nimmo walked. Two outs later, Conforto hit a sharp grounder that first baseman Rhys Hoskins couldn't field for an error. The ball trickled to second baseman Cesar Hernandez and Lagares kept running, scoring easily because the throw was way off target.
Luis Avilan (1-0) pitched out of trouble in the 10th, stranding runners on second and third.
The Good Phight: Time for revenge: Phillies vs. Mets series preview
It may be an understatement to say that the Phillies have had trouble with the Mets in recent years. They haven't had a winning record against the Mets in a season series since 2011, and the head-to-head record for the past seven seasons is a ghastly 50-82.
Sometimes one team will hold mastery over another team for an extended period of time, but much like Sunday's game, things that may seem interminable eventually do come to an end. And sometimes, when the fates change, they change dramatically. These are no longer the Phillies of Reid Brignac, Michael Saunders, and (possible double agent) Asdrubal Cabrera.

Phillies! Mets! ESPN! Ryan Howard in the booth! A furious wind storm! Everyone wondering if this will be the game in which Aaron Nola work! Tax day! Hot dang; what a day, what a sport, WHAT A TEAM! Everyone guzzle the rest of the coffee in your travel mug and let's HANG ON FOR DEAR LIFE as the Phillies and Mets (and the rest of baseball) celebrate Jackie Robinson Day in a way that is real and not incorrectly sponsored by Budweiser.
NY Times: For Mets, Shaky Arms Are a Worry Entering Phillies Series

Mets Manager Mickey Callaway knew it would be difficult for Jacob deGrom to duplicate the 1.70 earned run average he posted last season, but Callaway also believed deGrom could negotiate his way out of all trouble he saw this year.
"If he can weather the storm of run support he got last year, he can deal with anything," Callaway said on the first day of spring training. "So it should be a cake walk."
The last week, however, has shown how challenging it can be. After not allowing a run in either of his first two starts, deGrom gave up a combined nine runs in his last two outings, both of which resulted in losses.
