Cubs-Phillies Betting Odds: Point spreads, Totals, Preview, MLB Picks
|Wednesday, September 15, 2021, 3:20 PM- -|
Wednesday: Chicago Cubs (+1.5, -120) at Philadelphia Phillies (-1.5, -Even) 6:05pm CT (O/U 9)
Pitching: CHC Alec Mills (6-6, 4.35 ERA), PHI Ranger Suarez (6-4, 1.38 ERA)
The Cubs took game one of the series 6-3. The Phillies continue to slide, losing six of their last seven and falling behind in the wildcard standings.
Alec Mills is starting for the Cubs today, with lefty Ranger Suarez going for the Phillies. Mills has had highs and lows all year, so let's hope today ends up on the good side of that for Chicago.
In his MLB career, Alec Mills now has a 3.81 ERA with 144 K vs. 44 BB in 174.2 IP as a starting pitcher.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 9, 2021
The righty has a 5.24 ERA in 25 career games as a reliever.
Suarez has been great for Philadelphia, especially as of late. He has only let up 3 total runs in his last 4 starts. Even with that great production from Suarez, the bullpen and offense have not helped at all, and he only picked up a win in one of those last four starts.
I like the Philadelphia -.5 and the under 4.5 first five-inning line for tonight mainly because of how strong Suarez has been.
However, I think the Cubs get to the Phillies bullpen once Suarez is out of the game and can cover the +1.5.
Cubs +1.5 -120
Under 9 -110
No runs in first inning -105
Phillies -.5 5 inning line
5 Inning Line under 4.5 -105
Bets I like around the league:
Brewers (-1.5, -150) at Tigers: Brandon Woodruff is pitching for the Brewers against a struggling Matt Manning for Detroit. I will take Milwaukee here.
Angels (+1.5, +105) at White Sox: Dallas Keuchel has struggled mightily as of late. I like the Angels here at +1.5 with plus odds. I also like the over 9.5 in this one.
Cardinals at Mets (over 8, -120): Evenly matched teams, so I will avoid picking one and take the over 8 runs.
Yankees (-1.5, -210) at Orioles: This is more betting against the Orioles than for the Yankees, but I will take New York.
It’s a great day to make some money.
