5* MLB BLUE CHIP TOP PLAY

---Philadelphia Phillies -115---

***I like this game for the same reasons I took it yesterday, but due to the fact that it's now part of a double-header I have downgraded it from my game of the month to a regular top play***

The Phillies come in having won six of eight and are just one-game back of .500. They are clearly going to be motivated to go into the All-Star break at or above that mark. The White Sox on the other hand are probably looking forward to some extended time off and it's hard to see them being all that excited about this series.

I definitely like the Phillies at this price at home with the edge they should have on the mound. Philadelphia's Jonathan Pettibone is 3-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 1.217 WHIP in 8 starts at home and the Phillies as a team are an impressive 7-1. As for Chicago starter John Danks, he's 0-5 with a 6.43 ERA and 1.429 WHIP in five road starts.

The Phillies are 18-5 against the money line when playing against a bad team (Win Pct. 38% to 46%) in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons. BET THE PHILLIES!
