San Francisco Giants at Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

The Philadelphia Phillies are in desperate need of another strong start from Aaron Nola, as the team has not picked up a win since his last start vs Atlanta. In that outing, Nola fanned 12 Braves batters while giving up just 1 run. Look for the Phillies’ right-hander to slow down the Giants’ suddenly hot offense. On the other side, the Giants have now lost 3 straight games started by Carlos Rodon. I like Philadelphia on the moneyline.
