Baseball betting odds on Saturday favor the Philadelphia Phillies on the road against the Washington Nationals in both games of their doubleheader.
The Phillies are considered a far superior team to the Nationals which is why they are favored in baseball betting online odds in both games on Saturday. Let’s look at this matchup between the Phillies and Nationals you can wager on at the sports book.
Baseball betting trends definitely point to the Phillies in these two games. The Phillies have won 14 of the last 20 games between the two teams as baseball betting stats show. The Phillies have won seven of the last ten games between the two teams at Washington as baseball betting online results show. The teams split a brief two-game series in April in Washington as the Nationals won 8-2 while the Phillies won 9-8 as baseball betting results show.
Philadelphia started the season slowly but they have picked up their play of late, especially on the road. The Phillies have been excellent on the road versus the baseball betting odds. Philadelphia has been very good on offense, ranking in the Top 5 as baseball betting statistics indicate and that is even with Ryan Howard getting off to a slow start. When he gets going they will be even more potent versus the baseball betting line. Online sportsbook gamblers know that the Phillies have struggled a little bit with their pitching staff as Cole Hamels has been injured.
Washington has definitely been better at home in baseball betting than on the road but that doesn’t mean they are very good at home either. Sports book gamblers know that it just means they are awful on the road. The Nationals can sometimes get a little offense and win games versus the baseball betting odds. The problem for Washington in baseball betting online action is that their pitching is weak.
Baseball betting over/under numbers show us that in the last 20 games the over/under is 9-9-2. At Washington though, the over is 6-3-1 versus the baseball betting total. It is sometimes tough to predict what Washington will do versus the baseball betting total since their offense is inconsistent and their pitching pretty weak.
