Anytime you can get Roy Halladay in a big game, you have to consider your chances of winning very high. Halladay already has a no-no in his pocket this playoffs season. He is a great pitcher that is red hot as he has now tossed back-to-back complete game shutouts. The Phillies are 6-0 in his last six starts, and 12-2 in his last 14. Tim Lincecum made some headlines himself with a dominating 14 strikeout-effort vs. the Braves. I have a lot of respect for Lincecum, but the Phillies are a different lineup than the Braves, and in his four years in the big leagues, the Giants have yet to win a game in Philly with him on the mound. The Giants’ track record as an underdog from +151 to +200 is a discouraging 20-42. The Phillies have dominated as a playoffs favorite, turning in a 15-1 mark in their last 16. Philadelphia wins game one.
