Phillies vs. Marlins: Falter vs. Alcantara, Odds, and a +2235 trip to the Parlay Palace

Bailey Falter (4-3, 4.02 ERA) will get the ball for the Phillies as the team faces off against Sandy Alcantara (12-7, 2.43 ERA) for the 6th time this season.
The Phillies, who had a day off on Monday, come into this series with a record of 78-62, 16 games above .500, and looking to continue on the upwards trend vs. a bad Marlins team. Miami has won just 58 games on the year, bringing them to 58-83, 25 games under .500.

Sandy Alcantara has been roughed up by the Phillies a bit this year, as he’s 2-3 against Philadelphia this year. The Phillies got to Alcantara back on Thursday, as he went just six innings, allowing 8 hits and 3 earned runs, something that is very out of the ordinary for him.
The Phils have gotten great contributions from their stars vs. the Marlins this year, as Rhys Hoskins has a .974 OPS, JT Realmuto is slashing .308/.368/.586, and Alec Bohm is hitting .378. Although it doesn’t seem like a big deal, the Phillies have found a way to beat bad teams this year, and are 10-6 against the Fins this year, something they haven’t been able to do in years past.
