Philadelphia is 4-0 in their last 4 games and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The under is 4-0 in Philadelphia’s last 4 road games. Houston is 42-11 in their last 53 game three’s of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 interleague games. The under is 4-0 in Houston’s last 4 games. The under is 6-0-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings. 


Philadelphia comes into this game playing very well and they have won four games in a row. The Phillies will be looking for the series sweep in this matchup and will have Bailey Falter on the mound, who has allowed 11 earned runs over his last 17.2 innings of work. The Astros will start Jose Urquidy, who has allowed 10 earned runs over his last 7 innings. Urquidy has struggled recently and I think the Phillies will extend their winning streak here.
