The Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies have split the first two games of their three-game series, and each look for a series win in tonight's rubber match.

Betting Impact:

The Phillies are -140 moneyline road favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Chicago has the right pitcher on the mound to try and earn a series win, as they send their winningest pitcher, Kyle Hendricks to the mound. Hendricks (14-6, 4.54) is 4-2 with a 3.26 ERA in six career starts against the Phillies. Philadelphia is planning on using a bullpen game tonight. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these teams, while the Phillies have won eight of the last ten.
