Reds Phillies Betting Tips – Reds Too Much For Floundering Phillies

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 8/19/2012 4:42:40 PM
p>The online sports books are just as surprised at the complete collapse of the Philadelphia Phillies as the fans are. While things have been a little better in Philadelphia the past few weeks, the season is already lost. A team that started the season as a World Series favorite probably won't even finish .500 when the season is over. Heads will probably roll in Philadelphia, but it is never the right heads that take the blame.

The players are to blame for the downfall of the Phillies and not the manager or coaching staff. The Philadelphia pitching staff is one of the most expensive underachieving group of pitchers ever assembled. The Phillies never really addressed the team's inability to score runs and left all of the run production up to Ryan Howard. When Howard got injured, the Phillies were down and out. Now the Phillies get ready to host the NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds and the sport betting crowd expects to see a sweep.

Monday August 20, 2012 – Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies

How bad is the season going for the Philadelphia Phillies? Pitcher Roy Halladay has a 6-7 record with an ERA of 3.80. That is how bad things are going for the Phillies. Cincinnati starter Mike Leake is not faring much better with a 5-7 record and a 4.29 ERA, but at least Leake can count on run support. This will be the closest game of the series, but it will be a Cincinnati victory.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds

Tuesday August 21, 2012 – Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies

It is time that MLB clubs stopped making excuses for pitcher Cliff Lee. This is another season where Lee is struggling. He has a 2-7 record with a 3.85 ERA. The old mantra that "something must be wrong with Cliff Lee" needs to go and the Phillies need to start addressing Lee's massive control problems. The Reds will send Homer Bailey to the mound. Bailey is having a pretty good season at 10-7, but his ERA of 4.08 tells the real story. This will be a high scoring game with the Reds coming out on top.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds

At this point in the series, it won't matter who is on the mound for the Phillies. The Reds will have built up so much offensive momentum that no Phillies' starter is going to do very well. Vance Worley tries his hand on the mound for Philadelphia, but Worley is just another in a long line of Philadelphia pitchers that has let the online casino betting crowd down all season long.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds

Thursday August 23, 2012 – Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies

It isn't every day that a team gets swept in a four-game series at home. But the Phillies have so little to offer in the way of resistance that this defeat is an inevitable end to a lousy week for the Phillies.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds
