Philadelphia Phillies -125

The Philadelphia Phillies have not lived up to expectations this season as they have been stuck in the middle of an average NL East, but they are a much better team than the New York Mets and they have a major pitching advantage here. Aaron Nola has looked like every bit of an ace this season for Joe Girardi and company as he is posting a 2.40 ERA with 5 wins, but Philadelphia also has a ton of talent in their starting lineup with Bryce Harper, Didi Gregorius, J.T. Realmuto, and Rhys Hoskins. Seth Lugo has been good for the Mets in a starting pitcher role, but the bullpen has been an absolute mess this season which concerns me in a situation like this as Nola is good for 7 innings at the bare minimum. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia Phillies win 5-2.
