The Philadelphia Phillies will head up to the Bronx to begin the New York Yankees in a three-game set from Yankee Stadium in MLB Network. Philly and New York didn’t face off last season, but they split four matchups back in 2021.
Phillies Betting Preview
Philadelphia comes in at 0-3 after suffering a sweep to Texas in Austin. The Phillies were out scored 27-10 in the first two games before falling to the Rangers in a Sunday slugfest, 2-1. dropping their season opener to the Rangers. Philly is hitting .288 at the plate, while allowing an erratic 12.94 ERA.
Taijuan Walker will take the mound for Philly. The tenth-year pitcher put together his best season since 2015 with a 12-5 record, a 3.49 ERA, and 132 strikeouts. Walker faces an uphill battle here with the Yanks, but after pitching in Queens last season, he may actually find himself a bit comfortable dealing with the Bronx crowd.
Yankees Betting Preview
New York moved to 2-1 after handling San Francisco at home. The Yanks let the game slip away Saturday, but they closed the series strong with a shutout victory, 6-0. New York is batting .261, while allowing 3.50.
Nestor Cortes will get the call for New York. The fifth-year pitcher put it all together last season with an impressive 12-4 record, a 2.44 ERA, and 163 strikeouts. Cortes was a sharp 6-1 at Yankee Stadium, and he'll look to carry that momentum into this season.
Philadelphia vs New York Trends
Philadelphia is 1-2 against the spread this season, with a 2-0 over/under record. New York is 2-1 ATS this year, with a 1-2 O/U record. Philly is 0-6 in their last 6 interleague games. NYY is 13-3 in their last 16 interleague home games.
Corey's Free Pick
New York has come out and been effective from the plate early on, and I think that carries into this home series with Philadelphia. Injuries to Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins have led to a slow start offensively for Philly, and that may not cut it here against the big swinging Yankees. Back New York in this interleague clash Monday evening.
