2% Rotation #954: MLB Friday 2% Philadelphia Phillies -133 vs Arizona Diamondbacks @ 6:40 ET - The Phillies finally get their shot at revenge for the NLCS last year. Now certainly revenge can be over-rated and you have to be careful when and how you use the revenge angle across all sports. But, in this case, there is a lot to like. The Phillies are at home and off a loss and they had a day of rest yesterday too. Philadelphia also has one of its less prominent pitchers on the mound so line value is available here with a low money line on this one as well! The Phillies are a perfect 7-0 the last 7 times when they are at home in Philly (not including London UK series with Mets) and coming off a loss. They have not lost in this situation since their opening series of the season when they hosted the Braves and began the season with a pair of losses. So this is a 100% PERFECT situation that is going for 8 in a row! Happy to test that here as the Phillies had won 13 of 14 games played in Philly prior to the 5-2 loss to the Padres Wednesday. Taijuan Walker does not have impressive numbers overall but he has held hitters to a .217 batting average in his 3 June starts. Also, it is not like Jordan Montgomery comes into this one with sparkling numbers for the Diamondbacks either! The Arizona southpaw had a 7.18 ERA last month and has a 6.39 ERA this month. Arizona is 9-15 against teams with a winning record this season and the Phillies are 29-11 at home this season! The Phillies are 34-12 in night games and 14-5 against teams from the NL West this season. The Diamondbacks are 22-28 in night games and 5-8 against NL East teams this season. Payback for the 2023 NLCS begins immediately in Philly tonight. 2% PHILADELPHIA -133
