1 unit on Philadelphia -108 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
Colorado is on a 19-52 run on the road and 0-5 in Jordan Lyles last five starts. Lyles (2-5, 5.10 ERA) has posted a 6.50 ERA in May and has lost four straight decisions. One of those setbacks was his previous start at home against the Phillies on May 18 in which he was charged with four runs over six innings. Colorado is 1-10 in Lyles' last 11 road starts. The Rockies are also 18-50 as a road underdog and 15-48 away against a right-handed starter. Philadelphia is home for the third straight game, part of a 9-game homestand. The Phillies are 5-2 at home and 5-1 in righty Jerome Williams' last six home starts. Williams has been very good at home at 3-1, with a 3.45 ERA. The Phillies are 38-17 against Colorado, and the Rockies are 8-21 at Philadelphia, so grab home field. Play the Phillies.
