Philadelphia is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 11-23 in their last 34 Tuesday games. The over is 21-10-2 in Philadelphia’s last 33 playoff games. San Diego is 6-1 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 home playoff games. The over is 4-1 in San Diego’s last 5 home games. The under is 11-4 in these two teams last 15 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams were able to upset their opponents in the NLDS and will be looking to start the NLCS with a win here. Both of these pitchers have pitched well in the postseason, while both offenses have been on fire. I like the over in this matchup.
