Phillies, The Underdogs in Today's Daily Sweat, Trying to Extend Amazing Road Winning Run

The Phillies, who are underdogs in today’s Daily Sweat, will try to extend their amazing road winning run. The Philadelphia Phillies are enjoying one of their best stretches as a team.

After beating the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, the Phillies have won 11 straight road games dating back to June 13.

When they swept the Arizona Diamondbacks, it was the first win in a row. Since then, the Phillies have swept the Oakland Athletics and Chicago Cubs, and on Thursday they’ll have a chance to extend their winning streak against the American League’s best team.

The Rays, who have yet to be swept this season, will use their bullpen on Thursday. The Rays will start the game with right-handed pitcher Mark Armstrong, who has a 1.15 ERA in 15 innings, and the Phillies will reply with left-handed pitcher Cristopher Sanchez.

With a 3.26 ERA through four starts, Sanchez has solidified his place as the Phillies’ fifth starter. His last start was a full six innings, and he only gave up one earned run.

BetMGM has the Rays listed as -130 home favourites to avoid the sweep. The total is set at nine runs, and the Phillies are -105 underdogs.

The Phillies have lagged far behind the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves through the season’s first half. However, things have begun to fall into place in recent weeks.

On Wednesday, the Phillies beat the Braves by a score of 8-4, blasting 17 hits in the process. Nick Castellanos and Trea Turner each hit a home run, and J.T. Realmuto, Bryson Stott, and Alec Bohm all had multiple hits.

The Phillies’ lineup is deep and finding its groove, but the team has struggled with consistency.

The pitching staff as a whole has improved dramatically over the past month, with Taijuan Walker and Ranger Suarez leading the way after shaky debuts. Walker has now won his last six starts, the latest coming on Wednesday.

Despite their stellar performance on the road, the Phillies are only 3-5 at home. However, since they won’t be returning home until after the All-Star break, they may be able to extend their road victory streak to 15 games.

The Phillies demonstrated last year that they can be a dangerous club if they make it to the postseason, so even if they can’t catch the Braves in the division (they’re now 11.5 games back), they’re still worth keeping an eye on.

And what else is happening in Major League Baseball right now?
Thirteen contests will take place on Thursday.

The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees will play their series finale in the Bronx, and the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros will begin their four-game series in Houston.

BetMGM has the Orioles listed as -120 favourites vs the Yankees’ +100 odds at Yankee Stadium. Since the Astros have not yet named a starting pitcher, there are currently no odds for the Houston game.

After another day of Wimbledon, the John Deere Classic has begun. Day 3 of Wimbledon is currently underway if you’re searching for a different sport to wager on than baseball.

Men’s betting favours Novak Djokovic at -175 over Carlos Alcaraz at +300. For the ladies, the +110 odds are on Poland’s Iga Swiatek. Swiatek has won the French Open three times, the U.S. Open once, and Wimbledon once, but not both.

It would be a shame to overlook the John Deere Classic, which began on Thursday morning, before moving on to the Scottish Open and Open Championship in the golfing world.

Pamela Maldonado of Yahoo Sportsbook provides a detailed rundown of everything that has happened so far.

There is only one WNBA game this week. Thursday night features a single WNBA contest. The Connecticut Sun will take on the Seattle Storm. The Sun are favoured by 9.5 points at BetMGM despite having the third-best record in the league (12-5).

The Storm have dropped three in a row and now have a 4-12 record.
