Expect a similar result today. The weather is beautiful tonight in Philly and the crowd will be rocking. Expect both starters to give up 3+ runs. Both of these bullpens will need to pitch extended innings and will allow plenty of baseruns (and runs).

Predicted score: WAS 5 - PHI 8

Best Bet: OVER 9
