Pick
PHI (115) @ Betamerica

This is a 9* TOP INTERLEAGUE SIDE play on the Phillies.

Both teams need victories, so the "motivation" factor can be thrown out the window. Each team has a pretty mediocre bullpen.

Neither of these starting pitchers instills a ton of confidence either, but I definitely trust Vince Velasquez at home, over the volatile Jameson Taillon on the road.

Velasquez is 2-1 with a 4.33 ERA. He also has a respectable 52:26 K:BB over 43.2 innings of work.

Taillon is 1-4 with a 5.09 ERA. He owns a 1.26 WHIP and a 58:16 K:BB over 53 innings (note that he's 0-3 with a 9.44 ERA on the road as well so far.)

Philadelphia can't afford to look past anyone. I say Velasquez is the correct call here. The play is the Phillies.

Good luck, NP

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.
