The Philadelphia Phillies have really turned their season around after the Joe Girardi firing. They sit 3rd in the division trailing the New York Mets by 8 games. The Mets just beat the Braves on Monday night to extend their division lead by 1 game over the Braves, Phillies and Marlins who all lost.
The Phillies now travel north to face the Blue Jays who are trending in the opposite direction. The Phillies started the year out hot but since have been on a downswing. The Blue Jays started this season out so good that they were thought to be the early front runner in the American League East. July has not been kind to the Jays as they are just 2-9 in the month.
This month has dropped them from 2nd in the division all the way to 4th, so these next few games against the Phillies and Royals are important to head into the All-Star break on a high note.

The total is set at 9.5 favoring the Jays' UNDER, and is also an option when utilizing the risk free bet from Caesars. The Philadelphia Phillies have been on a lot of overs as of late, going 12-3 in their last 15 games. Blue Jays have been involved in a lot of high scoring games as well when playing in Toronto vs the right-handed pitchers with a 13-2 record in the last 15 games.
The Blue Jays have scratched their original starter. The Phillies will go with a bullpen game starting Andrew Bellatti. Bellatti has 32 appearances this season spanning just 28.2 innings. He has not played more than 1 full inning in any game, and we don’t expect much to change. He comes in with 23 hits allowed coupled with 5 home runs, 41 strikeouts and 12 walks.
The Blue Jays will most likely head to the bullpen to eat up the innings because they are dealing with a few injuries to their rotation. Last night’s starter Aaron Nola was just listed day to day after the 6-1 loss to the Cardinals. Kyle Gibson is hurt but has avoided the Injury List unlike fellow starter Ranger Suarez. It will be interesting to see who the Blue Jays elect to start.
The Caesars Sportsbook has the Phillies slated as the underdog at -158, with the Blue Jays at -190 on the ML. Head on over to Caesars Sportsbook and sign up. When you sign up using the VIMAXSPORT15 bonus code, your first up to $1,500 is risk free! Until next time, enjoy the ride.
