Milwaukee at Philadelphia

2 units on Philadelphia -1.5 runs -140 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Philadelphia Phillies were a mystery through most of the season. They were playing lousy, but it was a just a matter of time before they went on a run. They have done so by going 29-13 over their last 42 games. Roy Halladay has been his usually good self, and eight of his starts on the season have seen the opponent go scoreless for the game. 19 of them have scored 3 or less for the game, including bullpen work. There is a big disadvantage here for the Brewers who have not seen Halladay ever. Dave Bush has not been good on the road with a low total as the Brewers stand at 3-16 when he takes the hill on the road with a total of 7-8.5. As team, the Brewers are just 10-31 on the road as a dog. The Phillies are also 71-24 in their last 105 at home, so with a lot of wiggle room here, I'll go with Philadelphia on the runline.
