The last game of the regular season is here but that's no reason why can't keep cashing our MLB picks. Let's see what Sunday's finale offers and fatten our bankroll for the postseason.

Mets (70-91, -29.2 Units) at Phillies (65-96, -12.0 Units)

* Philadelphia is 26-39 (-7.7 Units) when the total is 9 to 9.5 this season.

* Philadelphia is 41-75 (-26.5 Units) against right-handed starters this season.

* Philadelphia is 35-51 (-10.3 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record this season.

* New York is 25-23 (+0.3 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record in the second half of the season.

* New York is 43-32 (+12.2 Units) in road games against division opponents over the last two seasons.

* New York is 12-6 (+3.2 Units) against the Phillies this season.

New York's Noah Syndergaard is getting the final start of the 2017 regular season and he pitched one scoreless inning earlier this week after five months on the DL. If you've been out of action for months, the Philadelphia Phillies lineup is one you would want to face as they are currently ranked 27th of 30 Major League teams.

Syndergaard is 4-1 when starting against the Phillies with an ERA of 1.89 and a WHIP of 0.90. The Mets are coming off a 7-4 win over their NL East rivals and should wrap the season with a victory as they have done in 12 of 18 meetings this season against their hosts this afternoon. Back New York in your MLB picks and cash a ticket!

 Tigers (64-97, -30.9 Units) at Twins (84-77, +10.6 Units)

* Minnesota is 70-91 (-26.1 Units) in home games over the last two seasons.

* Minnesota is 27-46 (-22.4 Units) home games against division opponents over the last two seasons.

* Minnesota is 12-20 (-10.4 Units) in home day games this season.

* Detroit is 36-49 (+4.0 Units) as a road underdog of +125 to +175 over the last three seasons.

* Detroit is 90-83 (+6.8 Units) in day games over the last three seasons.

* Detroit's starter Anibal Sanchez's team record is 10-8 when starting against the Twins with an ERA of 3.39 and a WHIP of 1.16.

The Twins now know which team they will be playing in the one-game wildcard showdown to advance into the next round of the playoffs. The Big Apple is the destination and right now that's pretty much all they're concerned with, especially the coaching staff. Don't expect much out of the Twins today as they take on a divisional rival in Detroit that defeated them last night by the score of 3-2 and one in which their record is just 3-5 in games played at Minnesota against the Tigers this season.

Bartolo Colon is pitching his age lately with a 0-2 record and a 10.45 ERA over his last three while Detroit's Anibal Sanchez has allowed only four earned runs over his last 18 innings resulting in a 2.00 ERA over that three game span. Let's grab the juice that the MLB odds makers are so generously offering and bet the road dogs in this one.
