Best Bet – Philadelphia Phillies -130 to beat the Washington Nationals
Its make or break in Philadelphia right now. The Phillies have lost 4 straight including yesterday’s double header and are a disappointing 2-8 from their last 10. Nola is just the guy to have on the mound to get them out of the slump. He’s 9-1 with a 2.21 ERA and 0.993 WHIP in 14 home starts (12-2 team record). He’s dominated the Nationals’ in his 4 starts this season. In those 4 starts, Nola has allowed 5 runs on 18 hits in 28 2/3 innings of work.
With the Phillies now 6.5 games back off the Braves in the NL East and 6.5 games off the Cardinals for the wild card, their season is on the line today.
