Phillies' Velasquez allows two runs in last start

Vince Velasquez yielded two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings Monday against the Dodgers. Velasquez had a shutout going until the sixth, when a single, a double and another single produced two runs. He still left with a lead, but it failed to hold up once Luis Garcia and Adam Morgan got involved. Velasquez gets the Giants next time out, making him a decent choice in mixed leagues.

Giants' Suarez allows four runs in five innings vs. Rockies in last start

Andrew Suarez gave up four runs -- three earned -- in five innings Monday against the Rockies. It was a Coors Field start, so Suarez did fine; he ended up striking out seven and walking one. Overall, there's still little to recommend him as a Giants starter, and he could find himself back in Triple-A soon.

MLB Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The Phillies are 6-1 in their last seven games versus the Giants but have not fared well at AT&T Park, where they are just 3-10 in their last 13 games played.

San Francisco

The Giants are 9-4 in their last 13 home games and are 5-0 in their last five games after allowing two runs or less in their previous contest.

Prediction:

I whiffed on my Phillies prediction last night as the Giants put together an excellent pitching performance but I will go back to the well tonight. Suarez has been brutal of late and the Giants are winless in his last four starts. The Phillies, meanwhile, are 20-6 in their last 26 games coming off a loss and have been profitable against left-handers, winning 20 of their last 27 games when a lefty starts for the opposition. I don't mind receiving +100 odds with the better team and better pitcher.

The Pick: Philadelphia Phillies +100
