With two MLB betting months left to go in the regular season, there is just one division in which a team has built a lead bigger than three games. The Philadelphia Phillies are seven games ahead of the Atlanta Braves for the top spot in the National League East, and will look to continue to work towards clinching the pennant when they travel to play a four-game set against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

The Phillies have looked good this season regardless of where they have played, and they will open this series with the man they expect to help make the difference in their postseason this year, with free agent addition Cliff Lee getting the call against Madison Bumgarner for San Francisco. Lee followed up an outstanding month of June with some inconsistencies throughout July, including allowing a combined nine earned runs through his past two starts, and will need to refocus heading into the final stretch. The Giants own one of the weakest offenses in the majors this season, and Bumgarner has been one of their more inconsistent arms this sports betting season.

It won’t get any easier for the Giants in game two of the series, and for all of the talk about Lee, Roy Halladay, and Cole Hamels, perhaps the incredible pitching of youngster Vance Worley hasn’t been talked about enough. The 23-year old Worley is 7-1 with a 2.33 ERA, perhaps taking something from the All Star pitching around him in his first full major league season as a starter. Jonathan Sanchez has been consistently mediocre all year with a 3.81 ERA, and it would take an off night from Worley for the Phillies’ offense not to be able to do enough to take this one.

It is scary that the Phillies actually had the edge in pitching matchup for the first two games even though they didn’t have either of their top two arms on the mound to open the series. Cole Hamels will get the call for game three against Matt Cain for the Giants, and while the latter hasn’t been awful he did allow five earned runs in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks in his last start. Hamels meanwhile has allowed more than two earned runs just once over the past three months.

Just when the Giants were getting desperate they will finally get some relief, as their ace Tim Lincecum gets the start against a former reliever another start in Kyle Kendrick. Lincecum has allowed just three earned runs combined over his past four starts and will continue to be the bottom line for San Francisco as they avoid the sports betting bonus sweep at home.
