Last year, you would have never gotten the Philadelphia Phillies at this price at home with Cliff Lee on the mound. The price is right to pull the trigger Sunday and back one of the best starters in the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Lee is just 2-6 on the season over 18 starts despite a 3.73 ERA and 1.181 WHIP, which are good numbers. The left-hander pitched seven shutout innings of an 8-0 victory at Washington his last time out. Lee is 3-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 0.857 WHIP in four career starts against Arizona.
The Diamondbacks are 2-8 in their last 10 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150. Arizona is 29-59 in its last 88 road games vs. a left-handed starter. The Phillies are 5-0 in their last 5 games as a home favorite. Philly is 11-2 in Lee’s last 13 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150. Bet the Phillies Sunday.
