The Philadelphia Phillies take on the Washington Nationals in game two of their series from Citizens Bank Park. Get the odds at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Phillies have struggled thus far this season and their struggles continued as they dropped their third game in a row on Monday night. They could only amass one run on six hits in the loss. Roy Halladay will try and right the ship tonight for the Phils, but he has struggled this season as well. He is winless in his last five outings and in the process has seen his ERA go up to 3.22 for the season.
The Nationals are off to a strong start this season and look as though they are legit contenders in the division. Bryce Harper continued his quality play since being called up from the minors with two hits on the day. Gio Gonzalez pitched six scoreless innings to pick up the win as well. Jordan Zimmerman has a very good 2.58 ERA, but has actually lost 3 of his last 4 starts.
Philadelphia is 5-1 in their last six games as a favorite, 1-6 in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, and 1-4 in Halladay’s last five starts against a team with a winning record. Washington is 11-4 in their last 15 games as a road underdog, 4-7 in their last 11 road games, and 5-13 in Zimmerman’s last 18 starts against the N.L. East.
Two good pitchers looking to get back on track take the hill tonight so we think the game will go under the projected total so prior to wagering read the sports book review.
