Alec Bohm leads the Phillies with 160 hits and 70 RBI, while Rhys Hoskins and Nick Castellanos have combined for 271 hits and 137 RBI. Zack Wheeler gets the ball, and he is 11-7 with a 2.98 ERA and 151 strikeouts this season. Wheeler is 2-2 with a 3.98 ERA and 41 strikeouts in his career against the Cubs.

The Phillies are 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 22-10 in their last 32 during game 1 of a series. The Cubs are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games. The under is 22-8-3 in Cubs last 33 home games. The Phillies are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.

The Chicago Cubs have done a wonderful of playing spoiler these last couple of weeks, Zack Wheeler has had issues on the road and Marcus Stroman has settled in these last few months. You can make a case for the Cubs in the plus money role, but the bottom line is the Phillies are fighting for a playoff spot and simply can’t afford to blow games like this against lesser competition. The Phillies need to find a way to win games like this, especially with a quality pitcher like Wheeler on the hill. Give me the Phillies and the RL for max betting value.
