BoSox starter Houck is having an outstanding run in Boston's rotation, pitching at least six innings in four straight outings while allowing just four total runs in that span. However, despite of his current form my pitcher vs batting order power rankings suggest Houck does not matchup well vs this explosive Phillies offense and regression is on deck. 

Philadelphia will counter with fellow righty Aaron Nola (8-2, 2.77 ERA). The Phillies are 11-2 in Nola's starts this season.

Phillies starter NOLA is 9-1 against the money line on the road when the total is 7 to 8.5 over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record)

HOUCK is 4-14  against the money line as an underdog of +100 to +150 over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record) HOUCK is 4-14 against the money line as an underdog of +100 or higher over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record)
