Over Under Pick:
The Mets send out Zach Wheeler to take on the Phillies. Wheeler had a rough patch of two games against the Yankees and the Nationals, but bounced back nicely in his latest against the Diamondbacks with a QS. He’s had 2 starts versus Philadelphia pitching a combined 11 1/3 innings, allowing 12 hits, 4 runs and striking out 12 while walking only 3. Phillies’ starter David Buchanan was adequate in his first start of his career holding the Dodgers to 2 earned runs over 5 innings. Some key stats to look at here may be Wheeler’s away record this season. He’s 1-3 on the season with a 5.68 ERA and 33.33% QS ratio. Buchanan wasn’t dominating in Triple A with a 3.98 ERA in 9 starts before getting called up last week, so to expect a repeat of his performance against Los Angeles may be optimistic.
Take Over 8 -105.
