MLB Sunday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Phillies Money Line -125 @ St Louis Cardinals @ 2:15 ET - The Phillies recently faced Dakota Hudson and gave him trouble. A lot of teams have given him trouble of late. Hudson has allowed 5 or more earned runs now in 3 of his last 4 starts. In that 4 start stretch he has walked 13 and struck out 5. Like Hudson, Taijuan Walker has struggled a bit lately. However, unlike Hudson, Walker has much better BB/SO numbers recently! In his last 4 starts Walker has 10 walks and 22 strikeouts. You can see that Walker, despite giving up more earned runs that usual, has actually been pitching better of late in comparison with Hudson. Digging beyond the expected starting pitchers here (as usual my play is action), the Phillies are 14 games over .500 this season while St Louis is 18 games under .500 on the season. St Louis actually has been worse at home than on the road this season plus the Cards are 41-53 against teams with a winning record this season. Philly is 38-21 against teams with a losing record this season. The Cardinals, after getting drilled again 6-1 yesterday, have lost all 5 games with the Phillies this season and you have to go back to the 2017 season for the last time they won the season series with them. With a reasonable money line on the better team that is a club that is also working hard to clinch a ticket to the post-season again, I will not hesitate to lay the price on the defending NL Champs here again just like yesterday! 10* PHILADELPHIA -125
