The Philadelphia Phillies and the St. Louis Cardinals will meet tonight from Philly. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
It’s been a rough season for the Phillies all year but they got a glimpse into the past on Friday night when they received some dominant starting pitching from Roy Halladay. Halladay allowed just two hits and one run in eight innings for a masterful performance. Tonight Philly will send Cliff Lee to the mound who is having a solid season, but does not have the wins to show for it. He has allowed 132 hits in 133 innings of work good enough for 3.78 ERA.
The Cardinals are running out of time and they’re slipping in the postseason race big time. They hurt themselves with the loss on Friday night and will look to rebound tonight and hopefully take the series. Tonight St. Louis will start Jake Westbrook who has won three of his last four starts. Westbrook is having a strong season pitching to a 3.76 ERA in 139 innings of work.
Philadelphia is 8-1 in their last nine games as a favorite, 8-3 in their last 11 home games, and 3-7 in Lee’s last 10 home starts. St. Louis is 5-3 in their last eight games overall, 4-10 in their last 14 road games, and 1-4 in Westbrook’s last five starts as an underdog. St. Louis is 4-2 in their last six games in Philadelphia.
While Westbrook is been pitching we like Lee to follow the dominant performance of Halladay. Give us Philly as a home favorite in this game so first check the sports odds.
