Astros vs. Phillies, 8:03PM ET

Zach Wheeler takes the mound for the Phils, and they'll need a bounce back performance from their best starter. After giving up just five total earned runs in his first four postseason starts, he was rocked for five runs in five innings in his loss earlier in the series.

This series has had a lot of ebbs and flows, and we don't think it's done yet. Framber Valdez has been phenomenal for Houston in the series so far, but he's only thrown for five innings in two of his last four starts.

This Phillies lineup has been held in check in back to back games, but they're simply too talented for it to happen in three straight games. Expect Bryce Harper to show up when it matters most, as we know, he's a man of the moment.

If the Phillies can get to Valdez early, or work some long counts and force the bullpen to take over, we like their chances to even up the series and force an all-important Game 7.

Best MLB Prop Today

As we mentioned above, we expect the Phillies' biggest star to shine bright with their back against the wall. 

In 16 postseason games for Philadelphia this playoffs, Harper has not yet gone three consecutive games without driving in a run. 

Harper had a home run and two RBIs back in Game 3, but has gone silent ever since. It's a good time for Harper to connect, and we expect the Phillies to get some runners on base, leaving Harper with a job to do from there. 

+185 is just too good of odds for the Phillies' best player in this spot. We love Harper to knock in a run.

BET: Bryce Harper 1+ RBIs (+185). Want to tail this pick? Do it with DraftKings Sportsbook and get a nice bonus while doing so by clicking ➡️ here ⬅️.
