Why bet on the Philadelphia Phillies?

Philadelphia realized they let a chance to go up 3-0 over the Arizona Diamondbacks slip from their grasp. The Phillies had a 1-0 lead and then played great until the Marte base hit that sealed the win for the D’Backs.

On Friday night, Philadelphia believes they have the edge because Christopher Sanchez is a true starting pitcher while Joe Mantiply is a reliever. Don’t be surprised when the Phillies jump all over Mantiply in the first inning and force Arizona manager Torey Lovullo to go deeper into his bullpen.

Why bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks?

Manager Torey Lovullo pulled Brandon Pfaadt after a terrific 5.2 innings. Pfaadt struck out 9 and didn’t yield a run. Because Pfaadt threw so well, and Lovullo was smart with his bullpen, the D’Backs skipper will employ the reliever BP strategy on Friday night.

Joe Mantiply will throw 2 to 3 innings at the most before Lovullo yanks Mantiply and uses a different reliever. Then when he feels it’s time, Lovullo will pull that reliever and then use a different reliever. Don’t be surprised when the three effective pitchers Lovullo used from Thursday night’s Game 3 win, Ryan Thompson, Kevin Ginkel, and Paul Sewald, step to the mound on Friday night.

Phillies vs. Diamondbacks 2023 MLB NLCS Game 4 Betting Prediction

Philadelphia will send a legit starting pitcher to the mound on Friday night and the D’Backs won’t, but that doesn’t mean the Phillies beat Arizona.

Chris Sanchez has had his moments in his last 5 starts. However, it’s important to note that when Sanchez has been at his best, the Phillies haven’t necessarily won.

Philadelphia is 1-4 straight up in Sanchez’s last 5 appearances and 1-3 SU in Jackson’s last 4 starts. So Philadelphia doesn’t always give Sanchez the run support he requires.

Not only that, but Lovullo has employed the reliever game strategy before. Torey knows how to get the most from his bullpen. Expect another close game that goes to the home side. The Arizona Diamondbacks even the National League Championship Series.
