Phillies ML (-165)
Under 8.5 (-115)
Bryce Harper 1+ RBI’s (+140)
Philadelphia Phillies ML over Arizona Diamondbacks (-165)
Through the first two games of this NLCS, the Phillies were 7-1 this postseason with a ridiculous +33 run differential. That is an average win by 4.13 runs. They have now lost 3 out of the last 4 games but fortunately for the Phillies, they will be at home for their shot at winning the pennant. If there is a spot for this team to rebound, it is at home where they are 6-1 this postseason with a +4.00 run differential per game.
What the Diamondbacks have done cannot be overlooked. But an exciting team in a deciding game with one of the best home-field advantages in baseball should be the more reliable pick. Philadelphia’s Ranger Suarez has been phenomenal in these playoffs and gives the Phillies an even better shot to seal the deal.
Under 8.5 (-115)
As mentioned, the Phillies’ Game 7 starter Ranger Suarez has been lights out this postseason. In 14 innings across 3 starts, Suarez has allowed just 1 earned run which is good for a 0.64 ERA along with 13 strikeouts and an opponent’s batting average of .143. If he brings any form remotely close to those numbers, he should do his part in bringing a low total.
His counterpart, Diamondbacks starter Brandon Pfaadt, has not been bad himself lately. After an ugly regular season, Pfaadt has come through in the playoffs. He has allowed 3 earned runs in 12.2 innings across 3 starts which is good for a 2.13 ERA along with 15 strikeouts. In such a high-stakes game, the margins for error are typically razor-thin. That is even more the case with strong starting pitching. If either of these guys starts to look vulnerable, they’ll be pulled for more fresh arms. This matchup and the potential game script have the makings of a lower total.
Bryce Harper 1+ RBI (+140)
There is nothing more Philadelphia could ask of Bryce Harper that he has not delivered in his two postseasons as a member of the Phillies. Last year’s run for the Phillies ended just 2 wins away from winning the World Series. In that 17-game run, Harper hit .349 with 6 home runs, 13 RBIs, and a 1.160 OPS. As an encore this year, he has hit .316 in 12 games with 5 home runs, 8 RBIs, and a 1.201 OPS.
If there is anything Harper has proven in the last couple of playoff runs, it is that he a big-game player that can produce in clutch situations. He is a certified superstar who has yet to win the World Series in his fantastic long career. Harper has the talent and the chip on his shoulder to do his part. He’ll bring the juice tonight. For any offense the Phillies can generate, look for Harper to be right in the mix.
