MLB Betting Trends
The under is 16-4-1 in the last 21 Phillies games overall. The under is 20-8-2 in the last 30 Philadelphia games on Sundays.
The Marlins are 2-7 in their last nine Sunday games. The under is 11-4 in Urena's last 15 Sunday starts.
De Los Santos was impressive in his MLB debut against the Mets and with great minor league numbers before his call-up, I'm thinking he has another strong start in him today against a weak Marlins lineup. Urena has been better as of late, but he'll be facing a patient Philliy lineup that will make him pay for mistakes. Take Philadelphia in this spot.
