2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Arizona at Philadelphia
Saturday 07/12 03:55 PM Eastern
3 units on Philadelphia -1.5 runs +160 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Phillies were a hot team then ran cold, but now have won three straight and are back on track. The Phillies have been tough all season long against LHP, and have won 11 of their last 15 at home against southpaws. The only thing that keeps Arizona in the hunt is that the NL West has been so mediocre. The D-Backs have trouble staying in games on the road, and when they face .500+ teams on the road they are a woeful 4-16! Randy Johnson is a fraction of what he once was, as the D-Backs have just one road win to show for his seven starts. With an abysmal “Unit” on the hill for the D-Backs plus the way the Phillies’ lineup has pounded LHP, especially at home, Phillies get a comfortable win in this one.
