October checks in one more time into the City Of Brotherly Love. Philadelphia could not seal the deal on Monday night. Now, the Phillies entertain the Arizona Diamondbacks with one last chance to go to the World Series. It is a Game 7. Naturally, Philadelphia comes in as the favorite in this deciding game. VegasBetting continues the week with Diamondbacks vs Phillies Best Picks including an Under with some potential.
Who wins on Tuesday night? Will it be Philadelphia or Arizona?
In Game 6, the Philadelphia Phillies got done in by power. There was no close heartbreaker here like Game 3 and 4. Yes, the Arizona Diamondbacks took the crowd out of the game during the second inning. With back-to-back home runs, Citizens Bank Park went into a nervous energy kind of mode. The atmosphere changed and Philadelphia never recovered. Arizona went on to win 5-1 to force a Game 7 on Tuesday night.
Philadelphia lost for the first time at home in the postseason as Aaron Nola gave up four runs in 4 1/3 innings. Meanwhile, Merrill Kelly allowed a mere run over five innings and struck out eight batters. The Kelly prop cashed for strikeouts and walks while Nola’s did not. Amusingly, the Under for Kelly outs cashed by a whisker (Under 15.5 Outs). Philadelphia could not catch up to Kelly’s rising fastball. It was like Game 2, but in reverse.
MLB Playoffs odds know this is the only game in town until Friday night.
Arizona caught many by surprise and it turns out they indeed had one more shocker in the system. Now, the questions remains. Can the Diamondbacks strike one more time and defeat the Phillies?
Okay, BetOnline and their great online Sportsbook review give the underdog a fighting chance for Tuesday night. Arizona appears to be hovering between +130 and around +140. BetOnline listed them at +139 as of very early Tuesday morning. Arizona found a way to win in Game 6. Sheer power caused a tie in a series few gave Arizona any chance in. Game 7 is one contest where anything can happen.
Diamondbacks vs Phillies Best Picks for Tuesday take a few different swings at the proverbial baseball. For one, the props did pretty well on Monday overall. At Vegasbetting, we went 4 for 6 including hitting three of our primary four player props. The big one was the Merrill Kelly Over of 1.5 walks. He walked three in a mere five innings. That was partly why the Arizona pitcher got the early hook.
VegasBetting gets intrigued with two young pitchers going at it in a Game 7. There are so many different directions this game can go. It may only take a few big hits like in Game 6 to decide the tilt early. If that is the case, the Under may look better and better.
Numbers trended a little higher than normal for a Game 7. The Phillies are in uncharted territory here as this truly is their first Game 7 in history. Meanwhile, Arizona has seen a few of these including a famous 2001 World Series where the Diamondbacks came back to win in slightly dramatic fashion. The longer Philadelphia does not take a lead, the more of an advantage that is for Arizona.
Philadelphia feels more pressure. There is little doubt here. Unfortunately, that pressure will only intensify if Arizona takes an early lead. The Phillies must figure out a way to score first. It will be fun to see how this game starts. Who will be more nervous? Will that honor go to the players or perhaps, the fans?
Tuesday night expects to still see some cool conditions in Philadelphia. Basically, October weather by any standards will be on the docket. So, what other ways to go in the Diamondbacks vs Phillies Best Picks? Now, Philadelphia lost their first game of the series by more than one run. The irony in this is the fact that the Phillies managed only one run to boot. Can Ranger Suarez and Brandon Pfaadt deliver an unexpected pitcher’s duel?
Arizona jumped on Philadelphia in Game 6 for the first time all series. They had a 3-0 lead before Philadelphia responded. Even with that run, the Phillies could not capitalize for any more. Now, that is the big worry. Cold the run scoring simply slow to a trickle on Tuesday? It is possible. Now, that opens the door considerably for some other possible wagers.
Honestly our first idea was to explore the altenate team totals. Okay, how low can we go? We have seen games in this series where the teams combined for three, six, and eight runs. The fun part is trying to wonder if we can trim that Under to 7.5 or even 6.5 runs. That makes a difference and by the time one enters the 6.5 realm, plus money is then on the table.
So, the Philadelphia Runline is now +135 to win by two or more runs. That is something likable for us. Also, watch the Under of 7.5 runs. Right now, this stands at EVEN but could change before the 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch. Both the Diamondbacks and Phillies figure to max out their bullpens. That lends hope to going even lower.
MLB Online Betting Sites knows there is nothing like a Game 7 to bet on. Again, look at the Under for pitching props in terms of outs.
