Inconsistent Mets Rarely Win Two in a Row

Amed Rosario #1 of the New York Mets throws the ball to first base against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park on May 9, 2018 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The New York Mets have owned the Philadelphia Phillies over the years, but it’s the Phillies who possess the better record a month and a half into the 2018 MLB campaign. The Mets haven’t been able to string together consecutive wins, as New York is 0-8 SU in its past eight games following a win.

MyBookie opened the Mets as -143 road favorites with a total of eight.

  • The Phillies are 4-1 SU in their last five games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Mets' last five vs the NL East.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in Eflin's last five home starts.

Noah Syndergaard and Zach Eflin are listed as the probable starters for this one. Syndergaard (2-1, 3.09 ERA) suffered his shortest start of the year against Philly on April 4, a four-inning, two-run outing. The star pitcher is 4-1 with a 2.06 ERA in seven career games against the Phils, however.

Eflin (1-0, 0.71) made a solid season debut vs the Miami Marlins on May 1 and fared even better in his last appearance against the San Francisco Giants at home on Monday, limiting the Giants to four hits while striking out nine in 6 2/3 frames to pick up his first triumph since August 8, 2017. Eflin is a career 0-2 with a 4.41 ERA in three career starts against the Mets.

Philadelphia hasn’t been producing behind Eflin dating back to last year, as Eflin is 2-9 in his last 11 starts.
