Pick Details

(905) San Francisco vs. Philadelphia (906) 7:05 PM | Tue, Apr 20 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1550)
PHI (-155) @ bet365

I'm playing on PHILADELPHIA. The Giants are off to a strong start and they blanked the Phillies in yesterday's game. I expect Philadelphia to bounce right back today. Note that the Phillies are a profitable 37-16 the past few seasons, as a home favorite in the -125 to -175 range. Wheeler, who had a 2.92 ERA in 11 starts last season, gets the call. He's 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA at home so far this season. In seven shutout innings here, he held the Braves to a single hit. He struck out 10 without walking a single batter. Dominant. A closer look at the 2020 numbers shows that he was 4-0 with a 2.38 ERA at home, as compared to 0-2 with a 3.86 ERA on the road. Webb has a 5.30 ERA for his career and he had a 5.47 ERA last season. He last pitched out of the bullpen and is only back in the rotation due to Cueto's injury. Expect Wheeler to get the better of Webb and the Phillies to get the better of the Giants. 


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.
