Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1160)
Pick
PHI (-116) @ Fanduel
This line is very, very generous with the pitching matchup going on. Zach Wheeler has not been credited with a loss at home since 2019, and he has a sub-3.00 ERA in that span. His only struggles this year were against the Braves and a couple of homers by the Giants at home. 
 
-On the other side is Taijuan Walker, who’s a regression candidate for a ton of reasons. First being he’s facing the Phillies for the second time, but this one will be on the road. He has a 1.238 WHIP, which is extremely high for such a low ERA, and the Phillies have been a much more aggressive offensive team at home than on the road. While I distrust the Philly bullpen, I distrust the Mets bullpen even more, especially off of a strong outing.

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.
