The Philadelphia Phillies (58-40 SU, 53-45 RL, 44-48-6 O/U) will be trying to extend their four-game winning streak in the SPORTSBETTING.com baseball betting Sportsbook when they battle the Arizona Diamondbacks (43-58 SU, 48-53 RL, 48-47-6 O/U) at Chase Field tonight at 10 PM ET.
The Philadelphia Phillies couldn't agree to a deal with the Toronto Blue Jays for Roy Halladay so they moved on. Philly acquired Cliff Lee-last year's Cy Young winner-and OF Ben Francisco from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for some minor leaguers.
Lee isn't exactly a winning pitcher this year however. Philadelphia has gone a blistering 4-0 in their last four road games against a right-handed starter and a spotless 7-0 in their last seven games against a team with a losing record.
The Diamondbacks have struggled immensely in going 17-39 in their last 56 games as an underdog and just 2-5 in their last seven games against a National League East opponent. While Philadelphia's J.A.
Happ was rocked his last time out, the Phillies have gone a impressive 4-1 in Happ's last five starts during game 3 of a series while the D-Backs have struggled to record a win with Yusmeiro Petit on the mound, going 5-16 in Petit's last 21 starts overall and a pitiful 0-7 in Petit's last seven home starts.
Take the Phillies for the outright win and RL cover while the final score plays over the set O/U total. Baseball Betting odds - In his last 20 games, Cleveland was only 8-12 SU.
