After opening as +111 underdogs, the Philadelphia Phillies are now -105 moneyline favorites in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves, according to BettingPros consensus odds. (source)

Betting Impact:

Bettors should be reminded that MLB doubleheaders this season are all seven-inning contests, which directly impacts a game's total and to some extent takes bullpens out of the equation more. The movement in the Phillies line can be attested to sharp money, as Philadelphia has received 61% of the money despite garnering just 50% of the bets.
