Philadelphia Phillies at Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

Leading into Tuesday’s matchup between Philadelphia and Arizona, the Phillies have the slight edge on the moneyline. Even though last night’s games featured a ton of offense, I expect this to be a low-scoring game. However, I give the edge to Aaron Nola and the Phillies. I like Philadelphia on the moneyline.
