It is the finale of a three-game bet on MLB series between the two teams. MLB betting trends tell us that before this series began the teams had split their last 20 meetings. The Braves had won 6 of the last 10 in MLB betting when the teams met in Philly. The team met for two series in Philadelphia back in April and May and the Braves won four of the six in MLB betting.
Looking at the bet on MLB total at the sports book we see that the under has been the way to go when these two teams play. Six of the last ten between the teams in Philadelphia had gone under the MLB betting total. Four of the six games this year between the two teams in Philadelphia have gone under the MLB betting number at the sportsbook.
The Braves have gotten back into the National League East and the Wild Card race with pitching. They have moved into the Top 5 in the league in runs allowed as sports betting indicated. Their staff just keeps putting up solid numbers and that gives them a chance every night to win in MLB betting. The Braves are below average in hitting as MLB betting tells us, but they have scored enough to win games of late.
The Phillies are a far better team on the road than at home but they can still be potent in Philadelphia in MLB betting. The Phillies rank in the Top 5 in the league in runs scored as MLB betting statistics tell us. They are also in the Top 10 in fewest runs allowed as bet on MLB numbers show. Getting Cliff Lee was a huge plus as he has been unbeatable since joining the team.
The Phillies won the World Series for a reason a year ago and this year they look even better. With Cole Hamels and Lee at the top of the rotation along with the sensational J.A. Happ, the Phillies have a great staff. With Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino and Chase Utley leading a balanced offense, the Phillies can also score a lot of runs.
