Great teams all possess a killer instinct that allows them to put away the opposition when they are down to the enjoyment of MLB betting fans. The teams throughout baseball history who has tossed away large division leads were the ones who did not possess that trait. It remains to be seen whether or not it’s something that the New York Mets have in them, but we might get a better idea when they head into Philly on Tuesday with a chance to increase their division lead.

Philadelphia will have 7 of their next 10 games against the New York Mets, and will be relishing the opportunity to play a role in how the division looks after the next couple of weeks. The Phillies have had a much better second half than most expected, but they still look to be seriously over matched in this series.Defensively, they have been excellent over the past 3 games, and that is a trend that they will need to try and keep going if they are not to be swept away here. It will be Jerome Williams (4-9, 6.10 ERA) who will start for the Phillies on Tuesday. Williams was shelled in his last start, and didn’t make it past the second inning.
