We’re feeling good after going 2-0 with our picks yesterday, so let’s see if we can keep the good times rolling today We’ve got another Phillies game to bet on along with some NL East action, plus Eagles training camp is underway. It’s a good time to be a Philadelphia sports fan.

Here are our top Philly sports betting picks for Wednesday.

Best Philadelphia Betting Picks: July 26

Tyler Maher: Orioles Moneyline @ Phillies

The Phillies came through for us yesterday, scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the ninth to earn a 4-3 walk-off victory over the Orioles and cash our moneyline bet in the process. This has been a great series so far with both teams splitting one-run games, but who will win the rubber match on Wednesday?

Baltimore sends Kyle Bradish (6-5, 3.05 ERA) to the mound, and unfortunately for us he’s been pretty untouchable lately. He’s given up 2 earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts, logging a 1.62 ERA and a .184 opponent batting average during that stretch.

We’ve got Ranger Suarez (2-5, 4.07 ERA) on the bump for us, but he’s been trending in the other direction. He’s 0-3 with a 6.14 ERA in July and has been getting shelled to the tune of an .896 OPS.

That’s not going to cut it against one of the best teams in baseball, especially one with the seventh-highest wRC+ (111) versus lefties this year. Accordingly, we’re going to recommend the Orioles moneyline here.

Jason Schandl: Mets Moneyline vs Yankees

Backing the Mets on back-to-back days feels even worse than doing it once, but how can you not? They joined the long list of opponents to thrash the Yankees with last night’s 9-3 win, and if you listened to me yesterday, then you’re richer for it this morning.

And there is absolutely no reason not to double down today. The betting line in this game seems to believe that Carlos Rodon is back up to full speed, but there’s been no indication of that whatsoever in his three starts this season. He’s having massive control issues (missing the zone on over 60% of his pitches and walking 13.8% of the batters he’s faced), which is something he’s dealt with in the past.

On the other side, Jose Quintana has been doing solid work for the Mets this year with a 3.60 ERA that’s backed up by a 3.38 xFIP.

Neither offense strikes much fear into the heart of opposing pitchers at this point, but getting a big plus number on the Mets moneyline is something you simply can’t turn down with Rodon on the mound for the Yanks.
