Our Betting Tip for Today
The Phillies are currently dealing with a couple of injuries that have taken a toll. However, they've consistently shown that they can display great performance at home, even under intense pressure. Besides, they know these types of games are critical for the postseason.
On the other hand, the Rockies have been fantastic on the road, and they have remained like this for several years. It's going to be a tough one. But we'll go for the Phillies in this one.
When it comes to putting runs, the Rockies have been performing poorly as the visiting team. They rank lowest in the majors, with an average of 3.29 runs when visiting. As for the Phillies, they are 20th with an average of 4.36 runs per game at home. Therefore, if you want to take a little more risk, you can add Under 9 to your bet slip.
Our choice: Phillies win & under 9
There are a couple of reasons why we decided to tip the Phillies for a win and under 9 for the totals:
In their last 11 H2H fixtures, only four games have ended over 9.
The Phillies have won five of their last ten fixtures, while the Rockies have won only four of their last ten fixtures.
Looking at this season, the Phillies have been underscoring at home - It's the same case for the Rockies when they've been on the road.
That said, we compared odds from several top baseball betting providers and settled on BetMGM as the site with the best odds for this game. The site provides odds of -145 for a Phillies win and -110 for under 9 (totals). If you combine these odds, it translates to 223.
