Pick
PHI (-178) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on PHILADELPHILA. The Phillies' bats came to life in a big way yesterday. I expect them to carry the positive momentum into this evening's game. While they gained yesterday, the Phillies know they still have plenty of work to do in the competitive NL East. Wheeler has certainly done his job; he's 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA. In his lone home start, he allowed only a single run through seven complete innings, good for a 1.29 ERA. While Cobb has also pitched well, he's averaging 4.5 innings per start, compared to Wheeler's 6.5 innings. That means we're likely to see more of the Baltimore bullpen than the Philadelphia one; the O's relievers have a combined 4.56 ERA on the road thus far. The last time that Wheeler faced the O's was in Aug of 2018. He allowed just one run through five innings, picking up the "W." He would have gone longer but his team (Mets) were killing the O's and had just sent 12 batters to the plate, forcing Wheeler to sit for a long time. (His team ended up winning 16-5.) In his only previous start against the O's, Wheeler tossed seven shutout innings. Phillies roll.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
