Phillies vs. Diamondbacks Game 3 Prediction
Philadelphia showed why they were the higher seed in Tuesday night’s win. From the jump the Phillies dominated on the mound and from the batter’s box. It is human nature to regress a little bit, especially on the road. The way Arizona dominated the Dodgers in the ALDS gives subsistence to the belief they will play with resilience. Arizona is a smart play. But the force Philly is putting on display demands they get the action. Bet the road team here.
