MIL (-117) @ pinnacle

My 9* Getaway Day Rout is on the Mil Brewers at 1:05 ET.

The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2021 season having NOT made the postseason in the previous NINE years. The Phillies won their first four games but opened a four-game home series with the Brewers just 13-15 on the season. However, the Phillies have won each of the first three contests and are now 16-15, which finds them atop of the NL East (all other teams are sub-.500). The Brewers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons but with FOUR straight losses, have fallen to 17-14 and one game back of The St Louis Cardinals in the NL Central.

Milwaukee looked to avoid the series sweep and a FIFTH straight loss with Brandon Woodruff (2-0, 1.80 ERA) on the mound. The Phillies will counter with Zack Wheeler (2-2, 3.49 ERA). Woodruff allowed three ERs on Opening Day but has recorded five consecutive quality starts. He's pitched six-plus innings in each one with a 1.16 ERA and a 35-7 KW ratio. Zach Wheeler beat Atlanta 4-0 in his first start of 2021, allowing one hit over seven innings with a 10-0 KW ratio. However, he owns a 4.26 ERA over his last four starts, with the Phillies losing FOUR of the five.

The Phillies have appeared in seven straight one-run games and that wears on a team. Plus, I love Woodruff over Wheeler.

Good luck...Larry

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.
