Play the over. This has been a high scoring season. The Phillies have played a ton of baseball over the last few weeks and it has really taken a toll on their pitching staff. With the exception of a couple pitchers the staff really isn't all that good to begin with including today's starter Velasquez. His ERA on the year is 6.53 and that is better than his bullpen ERA of 7.17. Toronto has quality hitters and will score off of both the starter and bullpen because I'm confident Velasquez won't pitch an entire game. Ryu has been good for the Jays but this Philly offense is still putting up a lot of runs. Against lefties this season the Phillies are scoring almost 6 runs per game. This game goes over the total.
