Heading into Friday’s matchup between Los Angeles and Philadelphia, the Angels will look to stop the bleeding, as they have now lost 8 in a row. On the other side, the Phillies are also looking to right the ship, as they have won just 3 of their last 7 games and are now 12 games back of the Mets. Between the two struggling teams, I expect Philadelphia to walk away with a home win. I like the Phillies on the moneyline.
