Two of the Hottest Teams in MLB Square Off in Philadelphia
Player Prop Betting Opportunities Braves vs Phillies
Garrett Whitlock Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-112 at FanDuel)
Oakland Athletics at Cleveland Guardians: Ryan Noda +600 at FanDuel
Boston Red Sox at Minnesota Twins: Adam Duvall +500 at FanDuel (Adam Duvall Over 1.5 Bases +140 at FanDuel)
The Philadelphia Phillies had their six-game win streak snapped Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to the NL East divisional rival Braves, who lead the division by 5.5 games over the Miami Marlins and by nine games over the Phillies. This marks the second six-game win streak the Phillies have enjoyed in June, and they are 13-5 winning 72 percent of their games in June. The Philly offense is one of the better ones in MLB, but it has been the starting and relief pitching that has propelled the Phillies back into Wild Card contention.
The Phillies' starting rotation ranks second with a 3.05 ERA, which is monumentally better than the 10.37 anomaly it posted in May. Right-hander Aaron Nola will be on the hill for the first pitch at 6:40 PM EST, and he has posted a 3.92 ERA and 1.099 WHIP in eight home starts, including 44 strikeouts and just 11 walks.
The Braves send A.J. Smith-Shawver to the hill to make his third start of the season. He has done quite well, but the scouts have had time to evaluate him to provide the Phillies' hitters with the best approach to get on base and score runs.
