Behind Enemy Lines in the MLB pennant race

Yo this is Nicky and we’re back in the winners column with two straight wins bringing the record to 8-3 for the last 11. We’re really trying to pick our spots now, particularly as the games begin to be really important to some clubs while others are bringing up players to get ready for next year. Couple that with some serious juice on the home teams that need a win and you almost have to win 2 to 1 just to break even, but this is where a little homework goes a long way, so let’s get to it. On a day where many staff aces are on the hill I’m going to going to go against one and us the hype to our advantage and get good value with a home team that’s a contender. We can get the hottest team in baseball Philly, and only lay 10% juice so go against the rook and play Philly -110 . The Phillies have won 18 of their last 21 at home and 9-1 against Washington in their last 10. Even if Strasburg is ace he won’t go the distance because of the pitch count and when Philly gets into the bullpen the Nats better have a big cushion. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
