Philadelphia Phillies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Friday through Sunday!
After years as a perennial playoff contender in the National League the Philadelphia Phillies crashed and burned last year with some of the biggest losses on the betting board with far too much public betting support based on their past success. The Arizona Diamondbacks were also in the red last year and were an utter disaster on the run line as one of the worst bets on the board, though the Phillies were even worse on the run line as only the San Francisco Giants lost more money in that wagering sector. The Phillies are trying to jumpstart their franchise with new manager Ryne Sandberg while the D Backs have a great leader in Kirk Gibson, who gets everything and more out of whatever he has. The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the Philadelphia Phillies at Chase Field in a 3 game weekend series that will run Friday through Sunday. Friday night’s game is scheduled for a 9:40 PM ET with Saturday’s game set for an 8:10 PM ET start. Sunday afternoon has a starting time of 4:10 PM ET.
D Backs Lack Green Backs
It was a horrible start for the Arizona Diamondbacks as they ranked dead last in Major League Baseball for earned run average and 23rd for run production as they lost 15 out of their first 20 games with the MLB odds. It was not much better for the Philadelphia Phillies as they lost 10 out of their first 17 games and ranked 24th for run production while ranking 26th for earned run average. Both Arizona and Philadelphia were last place teams.
Heading into this series the Philadelphia Phillies have won 12 out of their last 20 games against the Arizona Diamondbacks with just 9 out of the last 20 games between the Phillies and Diamondbacks going over the total. The Phillies and Diamondbacks have split their last 20 games at Chase Field with just 9 out of the last 20 meetings between the Diamondbacks and Phillies at Arizona going over the total. We’ll call for the underdog in each game of this series and under the total for each game.
