I’m on the Phillies here. I get the allure of plus money in a spot like this as Taijuan Walker hasn’t been the steadiest hand for the Phillies since returning from injury, but the Phillies lineup has backed him up more often than not this season. The Rangers get Dane Dunning back here from the IL, but I’m not sold on Dunning’s game, and this is a rough spot for him to come back to against a Phillies lineup that’s flat out rolling and have the best record in baseball and in the last two weeks, the Phillies are top-10 in batting average and have the lowest strikeout rate in baseball against righties. The Rangers offense has been dreadful as of late, and are the worst team in baseball in terms of batting average and 3rd-worst in team OPS in the last two weeks against righties as well as 24th in isolated power. The Rangers also have the worst bullpen ERA in the last two weeks as well at 8.18 while Philly’s bullpen is 3.15, putting them top-10. Give me the Phillies here.

Chris’s Pick Philadelphia Phillies: -135
