3 units on Philadelphia +114 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Chase Utley is on fire. He's hitting .483 and has seven home runs in his last seven games and leads the Majors with ten. He and the rest of the Phils faces Jeff Suppan this afternoon who has gone just 3-5 witha 6.18 ERA in ten starts vs. the Phillies. He's just 21-33 in home games vs. NL teams that average 4.8+ runs per game. Philadelphia is averaging 6.0 runs per game their last seven games and have the offense to be able to stay with the Brewers in this one. When this game gets late, Philadelphia will have a distinct advantage (2.03 bullpen road ERA vs. 5.58 home ERA for Milwaukee). The Brew Crew are just 35-54 the past two seasons to a line of -125 to +125. We'll back the Phils here.
