The Philadelphia Phillies are 19-19 in 38 home games this year, and look to improve to over .500 in tonight's series finale against the Atlanta Braves.

Betting Impact:

The Phillies are -152 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Philadelphia's Aaron Nola (4-5, 2.98) has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last four starts, going eight innings twice (and seven innings in the other two starts) while pitching to a 0.90 ERA. He faced two of the National League.'s five-best teams in that span (Brewers and Padres) and has shown impeccable command of the strike zone, with 45 strikeouts and just three walks in his last six starts. One of those starts was an 8.1-inning masterpiece against Atlanta when he allowed just one earned run and tied a season-high with ten strikeouts. Conversely, Ian Anderson (6-4, 4.60) has allowed just one home run in his last four starts and faces a Phillies lineup that remains without Bryce Harper.
