MLB Betting Trends
The Phillies are 4-9 in their last 13 games. The under is 6-2 in the last eight Phillies road games.
The Brewers are 19-7 in their last 26 home games. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight Guerra home starts.
The Brewers are playing great baseball right now, while the Phillies have been struggling with consistency for a while. Guerra is having a fantastic season and there is good reason to believe it will continue today. Although Eflin's velocity is up this season and he is showing signs of breaking through, he still is having issues with figuring it all out from start to start.
