BlackJack’s Favorite Tuesday Bets: Spotting Value in Philly

Jul 24, 2018 2:07 PM EDT
  • I'm betting two MLB games on Tuesday, including Dodgers-Phillies.
  • You won't find the Phillies' lights-out pitcher Aaron Nola as an underdog very often, but Philly's odds tonight are +101 vs. Los Angeles.

Editor’s note: This story initially contained a pick and write-up on tonight’s Giants-Mariners game. The bet was voided after Mariners starter James Paxton got scratched. We’ve removed the blurb from the story.

Tuesday is just another word for a Winning Day on this team, baby. We started the week right with a 4-2 Monday, and now it’s time to take that momentum and shovel it into the engine of this train and keep it going a thousand miles an hour. The only way we can do that is to go out and get more wins today, and that is exactly what we intend to do.

Betting odds: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

  • Dodgers: -111
  • Phillies: +101
  • First Pitch: 7:05 p.m. ET

This is a fantastic price to get Aaron Nola. The Phillies battled back last night against the Dodgers to take a lead and then lost it late in the game. They should come back hungry tonight. Kenta Maeda has pitched well this year (3.12 ERA), but Nola has been on a different level (12-3 record, 2.30 ERA). I like the home team at the underdog value tonight.

THE PICK: Philadelphia Phillies (+101)
