FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 13: Phillies Preview and Odds Boosts


Originally posted on www.crossingbroad.com

 

 

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Tuesday, August 13th.

In baseball action, the Phillies return home to Citizens Bank Park after a miserable 2-5 road trip in which they hit just 14 of 62 with runners in scoring position, which is probably why Charlie Manuel is now the team’s hitting coach after John Mallee was dismissed earlier this morning. Manuel’s return to the Phillies’ dugout should create some buzz for a moribund (second time I’ve used that word in a post today) lineup that is in desperate need of a jolt. With Manuel’s return, I guess you could say that IT’S HITTIN’ SEASON.

It will be Jason Vargas (6-6, 4.09 ERA) making his third start for the Phillies against Chicago’s Jose Quintana (10-7, 4.23 ERA).

We’re also just two days away from the Eagles’ second preseason game. Carson Wentz (probably not) vs. Nick Foles!

That will be the leading storyline ahead of a game that will most likely heavily feature backups and a number of players that won’t be on either team’s roster in a few weeks. Still, it’s a football game and you can bet on it, so we’ll get into some things to know about that matchup in a bit and how to bet it at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Finally, FanDuel Sportsbook has odds on the Sixers’ season opener against the Boston Celtics on October 23.

Cubs-Phillies Odds at FanDuel Sportsbook PA

Starters: Jason Vargas (PHI) vs. Jose Quintana (CHI)

Money Line: PHI (+124) | CHI (-142)

Total Runs: 10.5 Over (-106) | Under (-106)

Cubs-Phillies Trends to Know

A Daunting Moneyline

If you want to grab the Phillies at FanDuel Sportsbook tonight, I’ve got some bad news. The Phillies are a miserable 14-30 (-$1,243) as an underdog. They are also 5-15 (-$921) this season when a moneyline underdog between +110 and +140 and 2-8 (-$520) as a home underdog. Awful.

Meanwhile, the Cubs are 50-27 ($825) this season as a favorite, while the Cubs are  24-14 ($453) when favored between -117 and -147 on the moneyline.

Cubs-Phillies Prop Bet

Rhys Hoskins is probably happy to get back to Citizens Bank Park tonight after a rough west coast trip in which he went only 2 for 24 while failing to drive in a run. He has a 1.047 OPS against LHP this season and will be looking to bust out of his slump against Cubs starter Jose Quintana, who he’s already taken deep once in five career ABs. It’s worth noting that 15 of the 16 homers Quintana has allowed this season have been to right-handed hitters.

Eagles-Jaguars Odds at FanDuel Sportsbook

Spread: PHI: +3 (-110) | JAX: –3 (-110)

Money Line: PHI (+132) | JAX(-162)

Total Points: 35 – Over (-110) | Under (-116)

Eagles-Jaguars Trends to Know

We don’t know if Carson Wentz will play in this one, but it appears head coach Doug Pederson isn’t too concerned with playing his starters much this preseason. Here’s something to know: The Eagles are 8-14 ATS overall as a preseason underdog and 7-14 ATS as a road underdog dating back to 2005, while they are 3-4 ATS overall as an underdog and 2-4 ATS as a road dog under Pederson.

Sixers-Celtics Odds

Spread: BOS: +6 (-110) | PHI: -6 (-110)

Money Line: BOS (+210) | PHI (-250)

The Sixers were 8-5 ATS when favored at home between five and sevens points last season, while the Celtics were an impressive 4-1 ATS when on the road as a five to seven point underdog.

$500 Risk Free Bet

Still going and likely will be going into football season, new FanDuel Sportsbook users in PA can claim a $500 risk-free bet when they sign up.
