MLB playoffs odds fans are by now more than familiar with the Philadelphia Phillies. This is a team that for the past several seasons has been a fixture in the MLB playoffs betting.
However, the team has always come up short in their quest to bring a title back. This could be the year that the Phillies finally hit pay dirt with MLB playoffs odds. MLB playoffs odds makers would like this team’s chances if the MLB playoffs betting were based on a homerun derby. But as we’ve seen in past MLB playoffs odds putting up a lot of runs is almost never enough to win a postseason series. The MLB playoffs odds are much different than the regular season. As we’ve seen in the past, good hitters are almost always beaten by good pitchers and no team in the MLB playoffs odds action this year knows that better than the Phillies.
When it comes to hitting a ball there is no better team in the MLB playoffs odds than the Phillies. This is a special team in that regard and it has put together the greatest hitting infield in the history of the MLB playoffs betting. Stacked hitters from the lead-off spot through the sixth spot in the order this team can put out runs in a hurry if need be. With its big three hitters of Burell, Howard, and Utley, every opponent this team faces in the MLB playoffs odds will have his work cut out for him. Between them they have 116 homeruns. But that will mean nothing if they can’t keep their MLB playoffs odds opponents from scoring.
Cole Hamels is this team’s ace and he must win every game he pitches in the MLB playoffs odds competition if this team is to have a chance. Surprisingly the oldest man in the MLB was the team’s leader in regular season wins with 16. Jamie Moyer may be a hundred years old, but he is crafty and MLB playoffs odds bettors should expect him to come up big in the playoffs. Between him and Hamels, if they can both pitch long innings and save the bullpen, this team is has a very good shot of winning the NL playoffs odds battle.
As far as winning the World Series, anything is possible, but it will most likely take a monster effort from this team to go through the MLB playoffs betting without losing a series.
