The Philadelphia Phillies are one win away from upsetting the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS for the second straight year.
They demolished the Braves in Game 3, beating them by a final score of 10-2 behind two home runs by Bryce Harper.
If they aren't able to get the job done tonight, the series will return to Atlanta for a winner-take-all Game 5.

Braves vs. Phillies prediction and pick
I successfully bet on the Phillies in Game 1 when it was this exact pitching matchup and I see no reason to change that up. Ranger Suarez pitched 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball and I expect a similar performance tonight.
The Braves have struggled against lefties over the most recent stretch of games, ranking ninth in OPS (.759) over the last 30 days.
Meanwhile, Spencer Strider's issues have continued. He allowed at least three earned runs in five of his last six starts in the regular season and then allowed five hits, two walks, and two runs (one earned) in Game 1 against the Phillies. His game is dipping at the worst possible time.
I'll back the Phillies as significant home underdogs tonight.
