MLB Playoffs: Phillies and Braves
Game 3 will be starting at 4:37 PM ET. Aaron Nola will be taking the mound for the Phillies. This will be his first time to start a postseason game in a home game at the Citizens Bank Park, so it will be a special game for him. Nola is 11-13, with 3.25 ERA. Meanwhile, the Braves are still mum on who will be starting for the game.
While the Phillies are performing amazingly, the Braves have bounced back well to get into the postseason. Many believe that playing home games will be a huge factor in getting the Phillies to fight more to win the series.
Game 4 will be on Saturday at 2:07 PM, and, if needed, a Game 5 will be held on Sunday at 4:37 PM. Most sportsbooks, however, have the Braves as the favorite at -160, with the Phillies at +130. The Over/Under is at 7. And just like many fans, many experts and handicappers have mixed picks on who will win the game. But that’s part of what makes things exciting.
