Honestly, I thought we were done with the massive money lines for the season, but if they’re offering a +140 on a money line on either side, we have to take it. The Phillies lost their first game at home all postseason last game and they go up against Justin Verlander, who they rocked in his first start. He has still yet to win a World Series game in his career, and he is going to have a very tough time doing it in Philly. Cristian Javier has been unhittable, but Verlander has been rocked twice this postseason with his only good start being against the Yankees lineup. He pitched 175 innings in the regular season after coming off major surgery, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he is gassing out. Noah Syndergaard will probably only go 4 innings and he should give the Phillies bullpen a good enough start to let them save it. I like the Phillies at home.
