MLB Baseball Betting

Philadelphia lost 5-4 in the opening tilt of the series against Arizona, who is one of the hottest teams in the National League. The Diamondbacks have won 8 of 10 and moved to within a half a game of division leaders Los Angeles and San Diego in the NL West. Arizona is one of only four teams in the senior circuit to have a winning record at home and on the road. The D-Backs hot play has moved them up to a tie for 5th place in best teams to wager on at +5.7 units on the year. Philadelphia finally made the long crawl back over the .500 mark with sweep at Atlanta over the holiday weekend. The Phillies are starting to put it back together with Ryan Howard back in the line-up, as he had three long shots in the last two days.

Why D-Backs win – The ball club has won five in a row and even the players are talking about it. "We've been rolling," first baseman Conor Jackson told the team's official Web site. "Our young guys have been hitting and our pitching has been phenomenal." Jackson is among the hot batters with eight hits in last 14 at-bats (.571) with three doubles and five RBIs in the last five games. Arizona has raised its record to 19-10 against the money line after a win this MLB Baseball Betting season. Manager Bob Melvin besides having a good young team has club that can throw around the leather. Arizona is 5th in field percentage in the National League, but more importantly is first in putouts and total chances, meaning they are getting to more balls and saving the pitching staff outs. Arizona is 14-6 against the ML on a good fielding streak, 15 straight games with one or less errors. Pitcher Micah Owings is 3-1 with 4.10 ERA and is off his top major league performance, a complete game 9-1 victory. Arizona better be careful about hitting so productively, since they have played Over four of last five and have fallen to third as the best Under wager at 30-20-3. D-Backs are 11-2 UNDER after having won 8 or more of their last 10 games over the last two MLB Betting seasons.

Why Phillies win – Coming into the Baseball Betting season, Philadelphia figured to be a strong offensive club with spotty pitching. While the pitching part turned out to be true, the offense only recently has come around. The Phillies have scored a robust 6.6 runs per game in last seven outings to be the most productive offense in the National League at 5.2 RPG. The pitching has been an ongoing problem especially the bullpen. The team’s pen ERA is 4.69 with a below average WHIP of 1.570. Closer Tom Gordon went on the shelf on May 2 after several ineffective outings with right shoulder inflammation. Manager Charley Manuel moved starter Brett Meyers out of the rotation to replace Gordon and he has come down with a first degree strain. John Lieber will try to gets the Phils back on the winning track as tonight’s starter. Lieber is 2-2 with a 3.45 ERA coming off his shortest stint of the MLB Betting season, just five innings. The right hander has had a up and down career facing Arizona winning his first five, losing seven in a row before breaking that streak last season. Lieber is 11-18 against the money line when the total is 8.5 to 10 over the last 2 Baseball Betting seasons. (Team's Record)

Sportsbook.com Line – Philadelphia -140, Un9.5

Top Totals MLB Trends – Arizona is 12-1 UNDER on the road when the total is 8.5 to 10 this season. Philadelphia is 8-3 UNDER when Lieber starts after a team loss in the previous game.

Pick- This is a good spot for the Philly to come away with a win. Young pitchers like Owings usually struggle after a complete game, not having best stuff. The Phillies are 21-12 +7 units against RH starters in 2007, scoring 5.8 RPG, with .353 on base percentage. Philadelphia is 13-2 at home in last 15 roles as a favorite and perfect 6-0 after a defeat. In spite of last night’s win, Arizona is just 3-11 as a road underdog this Baseball Betting season.
