3 units on Philadelphia -111 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Well you know what they say about payback. The Dodgers swept the Phillies just two short weeks ago in LA, and the Phillies are ready to return the favor. They have taken the first three games in this series and will start Brett Myers tonight. The Phillies have won six of seven with a staff ERA of 1.80 over those seven games. Myers appeared lost early in the year and even accepted a demotion to get his mechanics ironed out. Since his return he has been the Myers of old as he has made six starts pitching to a 1.94 ERA. The Dodgers’ offense is struggling right now scoring just 14 times in their last six games. This is a great spot for a rejuvenated pitcher and a team hungry to return a favor, and even lay claim to the lead in the NL East. We like the Phillies for the sweep.
