Before making any Padres vs. Phillies picks, you NEED to see the latest MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it enters the league championship round on a 20-13 roll on top-rated MLB money-line picks, returning more than $400. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen HUGE returns!

The model knows San Diego third baseman Manny Machado was a difference-maker in Game 2, going 3-for-5 with a home run. In nine postseason games this year, Machado has four multi-hit games already, with three homers and six RBI. He was a big reason for San Diego's success against the Dodgers in the NLDS, going 5-for-14 (.357) with a double, homer and two RBI. He has flexed some power against Philadelphia, hitting three doubles, one triple and eight homers in 26 regular-season games against the Phillies.

The model also knows Philadelphia is led by slugger Bryce Harper, who has been on fire. He has at least two hits in five of eight postseason games with four doubles, four homers and seven RBI. He homered in Game 1 of the NLCS vs. the Padres and was 2-for-4 with a double in Game 2. In 45 career regular-season games against San Diego, Harper is hitting .300 with four doubles, two triples, 12 homers and 39 RBI.

Now, it has set its sights on Padres vs. Phillies. We can tell you the model is leaning Over on the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks of your own.
