4* Wednesday Night Baseball SMASH (ESPN2) on Phillies -136
I won't hesitate to get behind Halladay at this price at home. The Phillies are 22-6 in their last 28 home games with arguably the best pitcher in baseball on the mound. They are also 4-0 in Halladay's last 4 starts in the 2nd game of a series, 7-0 in his last 7 home starts vs. a team with a losing record and 7-0 in his last 7 Wednesday starts.
The Marlins are 0-4 in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of less than .400, 0-5 in their last 5 games with the total set at 6.5 or lower, 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win, 0-5 in their last 5 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game and 0-4 in Johnson's last 4 starts after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game.
The Marlins are just 3-7 in Johnson's last 10 road starts and 26-56 in their last 82 games vs. a right-handed starter.
It's also worth noting that the Marlins are 8-21 in the last 29 meetings and 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Philadelphia. Take the Phillies.
