The Philadelphia Phillies are 55-47 this season and have won five games in a row. Philadelphia is coming off of a series win against Pittsburgh, where they won all four games played in the series. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 3.75 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average this season. The Phillies offense has scored 476 runs with a .248 batting average and a .311 on base percentage. Kyle Schwarber is batting .204 with 33 home runs and 66 RBI’s for the Phillies this season. The projected starter for Philadelphia is Nick Nelson, who is 3-1 with a 3.94 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 48 innings pitched this season.
The Atlanta Braves are 62-41 this season and have won four of their last five games. Atlanta is coming off of a series win against Arizona, where they won all three games played. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 3.60 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a .231 opponent batting average.

The projected starter for Atlanta is Spencer Strider, who is 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 80.1 innings pitched this season.
Philadelphia is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 7-0 in their last 7 road games. The over is 9-4 in Philadelphia’s last 13 Tuesday games. Atlanta is 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 7-2 in their last 9 game one’s of a series. The under is 3-0-1 in Atlanta’s last 4 games. The over is 12-5 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings in Atlanta.
Both of these teams come into this game holding a wild card spot, but Philadelphia is only one game up on the Cardinals for the last spot. Philadelphia is starting Nick Nelson, who has been mainly a reliever this season. The Braves are starting Spencer Strider, who has allowed one run or fewer in four of his last five starts. With Philadelphia playing as well as they are, I think it is worth a shot to take them as such big underdogs.
