Money Line: +108 Philadelphia
*4 Star MLB Oddsmaker ERROR* The Philadelphia Phillies are really playing good baseball right now. I'm impressed with the work of this team to continue fighting despite having very little to play for. Atlanta is in a terrible tailspin right now, and with the Braves selling off some key assets before the deadline, this is a team that is headed south in a hurry. Julio Teheran isn't necessarily a bad pitcher, but his home/road splits are massive. Teheran has a nice 2.37 ERA at home this year. His ERA on the road is a terrible 7.24. He's on the road in a hitter's park here. Morgan has potential and Atlanta is the second worst team in the majors so far this year against lefties.
Atlanta is 0-4 in their last 4 vs. the NL East. They are 0-6 in their last 6 road games with a total of 7 to 8.5. They are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a starter with a WHIP of 1.30 or higher. They are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a 40% win percentage or lower. They are 0-4 in Teheran's last 4 road starts. Philadelphia is 7-0 in their last 7 vs. the NL East. They are 6-0 in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. They are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. a starter with a WHIP of 1.30 or higher. They are 4-0 in their last 4 home games. They are 5-0 in their last 5 after scoring 5 runs or more. They are 4-0 in their last 4 home games vs. a righty. The Braves are 0-4 in their last 4 games in Philly.
