Play Rating:
2% – Philadelphia Phillies -184 Action

2* Rotation #908: MLB Wednesday 2* Philadelphia Phillies -184 vs New York Mets @ 6:40 ET -  We reduce our rating to a 2* here rather than play the run line and risk getting burned on a 1-run win for the Phillies. I do expect them to roll again like yesterday but don't want to risk losing on the run line if Philadelphia wins a tight one today. The money line in in the -185 range which is why I am going with a 2* here. The Phillies have a pitching edge with Ranger Suarez over Joey Lucchesi in this one. I know Lucchesi had good numbers in limited action last season after missing all of 2022 and having Tommy John surgery. In the minors this season he has decent numbers too but he has allowed 20 hits in 17 innings over his last 3 starts with AAA Syracuse. Lucchesi will be facing a red hot Phillies team and a red hot pitcher. Suarez is off to an incredible start this season and has gone 7-0 with a 1.50 ERA on the season and opponents are hitting just .168 against him this season. The Phillies have won 22 of 27 games and they did lose their most recent home game after winning 11 in a row at home so this is the perfect spot to get back on track at home as they have not lost B2B home games since starting the season 0-2 against the Braves! So we will back the Phillies and lay the price here as they take advantage of a Mets team that has lost 14 of 21 games! Lay it! 2* PHILADELPHIA -184
