4* MLB OVER/UNDER TOTAL ANNIHILATOR: OVER 8.5

Look for a lot of runs to be scored in Tuesday's matchup between the Phillies and Mets. Philadelphia will send out Joe Blanton, who has allowed 13 runs on 19 hits over his last two starts. Blanton failed to pitch past the 5th inning in both of those starts. The Mets will counter with Jeremy Hefner, who got hit extremely hard in his major league debut last Thursday. Hefner allowed the Padres of all teams to put up six runs on nine hits in less than four innings of work.

There's a pretty good chance one, if not both, starting pitcher won't make it past the 5th inning. That sets up well for the OVER, as both teams have mediocre bullpens at best. The Phillies bullpen has a 4.65 ERA and the Mets relievers have a 5.16 ERA.

The OVER is 12-2-2 in Blantons last 16 starts as a road favorite and 6-1-1 in Mets last 8 home games. BET THE OVER!
