It's time for Philadelphia fans to get excited, the Phillies are starting to look like the team that won the National League pennant last season.
Heading into their weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals, they're holding on to the top wild card spot in the NL. A series win would further cement their spot in the postseason as we enter the final stretch of the season.

Cardinals vs. Phillies odds, run line, and total
Cardinals vs. Phillies prediction and pick
The Phillies may be 4-6 in their last 10 games, but I still think they're red hot and we should continue betting on them until further notice. Their offense has caught fire, ranking second in OPS over the past 30 days with a mark of .842.
Now, they get to face a struggling Miles Mikolas, who has a 5.89 ERA in his last seven starts. I have no doubt the Phillies' offense will get to him tonight.
Meanwhile, Christopher Sanchez gets the start for the Phillies and he's been a solid addition to Philadelphia's rotation. He has a 3.36 ERA in his 12 starts and the Phillies have come away with the win in his last three starts.
Let's ride with Philadelphia as a home favorite tonight.
