OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a winner for Friday on the Philadelphia Phillies (-142) to NY Mets.
Reasoning: I am the first one to stand up and say how the Phillies offense has underachieved in a major way for the last month or so but with Chase Utley back and with David Wright and Ike Davis banged up this price is just too cheap on the visitors from the City of Brotherly Love.
When push comes to shove the Phils with Roy Oswalt on the hill against the Mets and Chris Capuano is a mismatch, plain and simply. I don’t even mind Capuano as the lefty is fairly athletic and overall has an upside but he is no Oswalt and to get Howard, Utley, Polanco, Ibanez and a far superior Phillies’ club is worth a small play here. The lineup definitely misses Shane Victorino as that guy is the straw that mixes the drink but in the end the Mets are a team that is extremely blah and not on par with today’s opponent.
I generally don’t love laying a price such as this one but it’s not as steep as it should be as Philadelphia just flat out has the better everything in this game and should be a heftier favorite.
I expect Oswalt to be Oswalt and for the clear-cut better team to be just that, the clear-cut better team.
Top expert pick on this game: Philadelphia
For more information: Are you kidding me with a game on the diamond tonight? I literally have isolated a game that is at the very least 50 cents off, no and’s, if’s or but’s. The Bulls fourth quarter was a total debacle and now I move on as a winner in 11 of the last 17 days and 51 of the last 82 with a profit of a cool 6.4 million stars.
The biggest and most powerful play in my arsenal is on display tonight, a 500,000* baseball play in which I fully expect to win by four runs, period. Click now to purchase
