The Philadelphia Phillies will travel to Atlanta this weekend for an NL East division battle. All odds for this game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Phillies have been out of the running out for a while and will look to play the role of spoiler this weekend versus the Braves. The Phillies won 3-2 against the Mets on Thursday and they overall have won seven games in their last 11 contests. Tonight on the mound they will start Roy Halladay will be looking for is 5th win in 6 starts. Halladay has had an inconsistent 2012, but lately has turned a corner and looks to be rounding into shape.
Atlanta has been in competition at the top of the division all season long. They did lose Wednesday however to San Diego by score of 8-2. Their bats have slipped a little bit over the last couple of weeks and they have been carried by a solid pitching staff. Tonight Mike Minor will get the ball in the series opener and he has been pretty good lately with four straight quality starts.
Atlanta is tough to get behind right now because their bats have been quiet. We will lean on Philly and Roy Halladay and take them a slight Moneyline favorite in this game at the sports book.
