(909) Philadelphia vs. NY Mets (910) 7:10 PM | Wed, Apr 14 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1160)
PHI (-116) @ pinnacle
It's time to pick on another pitcher, but whose public numbers might not be as bad as we talked about in the Angels/Royals game. David Peterson has a 4.19 ERA in his career and is 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his short Mets career at home. However, he's not in a great spot for this start today. He's on 6 days of rest coming into this one and he has already faced the Phillies once this year. When starting a game 6 days of rest? He has a 7.24 ERA in his career. He's also facing the Phillies for the second time this year and the third time in his career. He already has a 16.50 ERA with 11 earned runs in 6 innings pitched against the Phillies, but when an offense gets to face a pitcher for the second time in such a short period of time, it's almost always advantage offense.-Not only did the Phillies beat up on Peterson in his first start, they've hit left-handed pitchers pretty hard all year. They have also hit better on the road than at home so far. I like Zack Wheeler for the Phillies in this start, and I think the Mets bullpen is going to be a real problem for them again this year, so I'm rolling with Bryce Harper and the Philly Fanatic in this one.


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.
