Betting Odds: Phillies -1.5 (-115) - Over/Under (8.5)

Pick: Phillies -1.5 (-115)

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Philadelphia Phillies will play the second game of a three game weekend series here on Saturday in Philadelphia. These two teams will meet in a rematch of the NLCS from last season and both of them will be looking to pick up a much-needed victory here in this one. Both teams came into the season with expectations of being a playoff team, but so far only Philadelphia has lived up to those expectations. That is something will change throughout this weekend and the rest of the summer, and it starts with grabbing a big victory here in this one.

After a surprising run all the way to the World Series last season, the Arizona Diamondbacks have seemingly come back to reality. As they are struggling throughout the early part of this year. They will look to get things on track throughout the summer and they will face off with the team that they beat in seven games and last year’s National League championship series here throughout the weekend. Arizona has been hovering around the .500 Mark throughout the early part of the regular season and they come into this game sitting at .500 with a record of 38-38. 

They will look to grab victory number 39 here on  Saturday against Philadelphia as they take on the best team in baseball looking to jumpstart some success this season. Tommy Henry gets the start for Arizona here on Saturday afternoon and it has been a rather rough start of the year for him. His Earned Run Average is well above a normal amount, as he comes into this game with an ERA of 6.23 at the moment. His record currently sits at 2-2 on the year and he will look to pick up his third victory of the season.

The Philadelphia Phillies are off to an incredible start this season as they have easily established themselves as one of the best teams in all of baseball. They are running away with the National League East division, and they look to clinch the division before the fall comes around, and at the rate they are playing they could lock up the division before the end of August. Their lineup is producing and the starting rotation has shut down opposing hitters throughout the early part of the year. That is something they look to continue throughout this game on Saturday afternoon at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks. That is something they struggled with the NLCS last season and they will haunt them throughout this game or series. 

Zach Wheeler gets to start for Philadelphia in this game and he comes into this one with eight victories on the season. He will look to pick up his ninth victory of the year and keep his name in the National League Cy Young Award race with a quality performance in this one. He will also look to lead Philadelphia back into the win column after dropping the opening game of the series against Arizona in a close and competitive contest on Friday night. With Wheeler on the mound, the run should be at a premium for Arizona throughout this game as he has been one of the best pitchers in baseball heading into the summer. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

-Philadelphia is 29-12 at home 

- Arizona is 13–9 against teams above .500

- Philadelphia is 44-16 against teams at or below .500

I looked for this to be a close and competitive match up here on Saturday afternoon, but in the end, I look for the Philadelphia Phillies to pick up the victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. I think Wheeler will shut down this Arizona Diamondbacks lineup throughout the second game of this series and lead Philadelphia to their first victory of the series in the process. He has been effective all year against solid lineups, and more of the same here in this game.
