Score: 2 - 12
Money Line: -108 Philadelphia
*4 Star MLB 100% Angle CRUSHER* The Philadelphia Phillies are really playing hard since the All Star Break. This team deserves a lot of credit for not quitting. Philadelphia has a young core that is swinging the bats well right now. Aaron Nola is a very good pitching prospect for Philadelphia. I expect big things from him. Atlanta's offense overachieved through much of the early season, but they have fallen apart of late. While the Phillies appear to be playing inspired baseball, the Braves appear ready for the season to be over. Wisler isn't a bad young pitcher, but he has been very fortunate in avoiding long balls this year. The warm weather and a hitter's park isn't good for a fly ball pitcher like him.
Atlanta is 0-7 in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. They are 0-5 in their last 5 vs. a righty. They are 0-5 in their last 5 with a total set at 7 to 8.5 runs. They are 0-5 in their last 5 overall. Philadelphia is 6-0 in their last 6 vs. the NL East. They are 4-0 in their last 4 after scoring 4 runs or more. They are 5-0 in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a road win percentage of 40% or lower. They are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. a pitcher with a WHIP of 1.30. A 41-0 angle. Take Philadelphia.
