Pick
NYM (-142) @ Fanduel

The set-up: These teams are fighting for playoff positioning, but off yesterday's loss, I like the Mets to bounce back here with their ace on the mound. The visitors hand the ball to Jacob deGrom (4-1, 1.67 ERA) and he'll be eager to help his team avoid a fourt-straight loss. The Phillies moved back to .500 with their win yesterday, but they remained very injured, including to outfielder Jay Bruce, first baseman Rhys Hoskins and catcher J.T. Realmuto. In 16 starts lifetime vs. the Phillies, deGro mis 8-1 with a 2.16 ERA.

The pick: It's difficult to say anything negative about Phillies' starter Zack Wheeler (4-0, 2.47), but I simply feel that he's in the wrong place at the wrong time here. As note that New York is 7-2 in its last nine after four or more straight losses. This one sets up very well for deGrom and desperate visiting side. Lay the reasonable price!

This is a 10* COACH'S CORNER on the New York Mets.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
