Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin

Bryce Harper went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in the Phillies' shutout loss to the Cardinals on Monday. Harper struck out in half of his four at-bats as the Phillies were shut out for only the second time this season. The 26-year-old superstar is hitting .226 with six homers, 20 runs scored, 21 RBI and one steal across 151 plate appearances. While he hasn’t been a total bust, he’s been a colossal disappointment considering the lofty expectations generated by the record-setting contract he inked last offseason.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cardinals’ win over the Phillies on Monday. Molina walloped a two-run tater, his third long ball of the season, off Phillies’ starter Vince Velasquez in the fourth inning. It was his first round-tripper since April 24. He also singled in the fifth and seventh. The three-hit performance raises the 36-year-old’s batting average from .262 to .278 across 134 plate appearances this season. Considering the overall state of the catching position, Molina remains an extremely reliable producer despite his advanced age.

MLB Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The Phillies have dropped 12 of Nola’s last 17 road starts when facing an opponent with a winning record.

St. Louis

The Cardinals are now 13-2 in their last 15 home games.

Prediction:

Nola is rounding back into form after a string of bad starts to begin the year. Even though the Cardinals have an excellent offense and are tough to beat at home, I feel like we’re getting a discount tonight on the Phillies despite their ace taking the mound. Hudson is coming off a solid start against the Nationals but has struggled with walks and is only a rookie. This Philadelphia lineup is a dangerous one to navigate and is too good to be held down two nights in a row.

The Pick: Philadelphia Phillies -110
