Rickenbach MLB Rotation #901 Tuesday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Philadelphia Phillies vs Atlanta Braves @ 7:05 ET - The Phillies Jason Vargas has been crushed by the Braves 3 of the last 5 times he has faced them. That includes this season too when Vargas couldn't even get out of the first inning. Likewise, Atlanta's Max Fried has had issues when facing the Phillies. He has made two starts against Philadelphia this season and has allowed 10 runs (9 earned) in 10 innings of work. The long ball has hurt Fried when facing the Phillies as he has given up 4 homers in those 10 innings. These are two very potent lineups and I look for Philadelphia to respond at home after getting blown out 7-2 last night. However, I don't trust Vargas against this potent Braves lineup and that is why my play here is the over rather than the Phillies as a home dog. Lets not forget the Phillies bullpen has been shaky too this season. Philadelphia's pen ranks in the bottom of the third in the majors based on ERA and the Atlanta bullpen ranks only in the middle of the pack. In other words, look for runs early, often, and throughout this contest. With yesterday's push, the over is now 9-3-1 in the 13 games between these teams this season. Look for today's to "push" too...right over the total that is! Just too many big sticks in both of these lineups and each team has a number of hitters that have given these starting pitchers - and the bullpen arms too - a lot of trouble this season. The over is 14-7 this season when the Braves are a road favorite of -125 or more. The over is 5-2 this season when the Phillies are a home underdog of +125 or more. 10* OVER the total in Philadelphia
