MLB Odds National League May 7 2012: The Philadelphia Phillies host the New York Mets headlining a seven-card National League schedule when they play Monday’s ESPN televised game at Citizens Bank Park. Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay (3-2,3.40 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies in this one and will be going against Mets starter Joe Niese (2-1, 4.08 ERA). Odds makers at most off shore sports shops list Halladay and the Phillies as -169 MLB Odds favorites with a combined game score total of 6 1/2-runs. Mets backers wagering for a SU win are getting +157.
St. Louis Cardinals starter Lance Lynn will try to extend his personal winning streak this Monday (9:40 p.m. ET) to six games and the Cardinals second win in a row when he faces the Arizona Diamondbacks and left-handed starter Joe Saunders at Chase Field in Phoenix. Lynn became the NL’s first five-game winner in his last start. He retired 15 straight at one point and continues to baffle hitters with his three fastballs and two offspeed pitches. Lynn has allowed more than one run in a game only once. With Lynn the starter, sports shops are offering the Cardinals as slight odds favorites at -114. D-Backs backers are getting +105 but Saunders must pitch.
