Arizona at Philadelphia
Friday 07/11 07:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Philadelphia -1.5 runs +140 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Arizona has been a horrible road team the entire year, but when they face teams with a winning record on the road, they are even worse. When facing a .500+ team on the road, the D-Backs are a depressing 5-18. Philadelphia off of their worst stint of the season at 6-13, has now won two straight and has righted the ship. This two-game run is also after a 1-9, ten-game home stretch, and good teams don't continue to do that at home. The Phillies are 13-5 when Kyle Kendrick takes the mound, and have been eating up LHP to the tune of a 20-12 record. We see them winning this one easily at home.
