Pick: Phillies ML (-130)

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs will play the second game of their three game weekday series here on Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. Although both of these teams came into the season of making the playoffs that has not been the case for and for Philadelphia they have run away with the best record in the National League up until this point of the season. This series could be a pivotal turning point in the season for both teams and both Philadelphia and Chicago will be looking to pick up a much-needed victory here on Wednesday evening in one of the most historic ballparks in all of Major League Baseball. 

Philadelphia has raced off a fast start throughout the first half of the regular season and they will look to maintain that momentum with another victory here on Wednesday night in Chicago. Philadelphia has quickly established themselves as a legitimate contender once again within the National League and they will look to further prove that to be true as they look ahead into the All-Star break on a hot note. Their 56 victories on the season is the most in all of Major League Baseball at the moment and they will look to extend that further with win number 57 here on Wednesday night against the Cubs.

Zach Wheeler gets the start for Philadelphia in this game and he has been putting up fantastic numbers throughout the first half of the regular season. That is something he will look to maintain throughout this game as he looks to improve upon his case to win the National League Cy Young award this year. He comes into this game with nine victories to his name on the year and he will look to hit the double digit victory mark with another impressive performance against a struggling Chicago offense.

The Chicago Cubs have been pretty underwhelming throughout the early part of the season after coming into the year with expectations of winning the National League Central division. They will be chasing down the Milwaukee Brewers for the majority of the back half of the season. As well as attempting to chase down one of the top three wildcard spots in the National League as well. They will look for a massive momentum boost with a much-needed victory here on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Phillies after opening up the series with a loss on Tuesday and they will look to even up the series before heading into Thursday’s finale.

Chicago comes into this game on Wednesday as losers of seven out of their last ten on the season, including two in a row. Which means they will really need to turn things around with a victory here in this one. They have played decent baseball at home this season winning 22 out of 41 games, but that will not help them against a team as strong as Philadelphia. Shota Imanaga gets the start for Chicago in this game and he comes into this one with seven victories to his name on the season. He will look to pick up his eighth one of the year as he looks to continue being Chicago’s best pitcher throughout the season. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Chicago is 21-29 against teams above .500

- Philadelphia is 23-15 on the road 

- Philadelphia is 35-18 against teams below .500

Due to the exciting pitching matchup on tap for this game on Wednesday afternoon I do expect this game to be close and competitive throughout the early innings. However, by the time the game comes to an end I do look for the Philadelphia Phillies to break through and pick up their second consecutive victory over the Chicago Cubs here on Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. I can easily see Philadelphia doing some legitimate damage to the Chicago Cubs bullpen late in the contest to pick up a comfortable victory.
