There’s a lot on the line for the Philadelphia Phillies as they take the field Sunday night at Citizens Bank Park for a 7:08pm ET start against the Atlanta Braves.

First of all, thanks to Saturday’s 4-1 victory, the Phils extended two current hot streaks. Philadelphia is rolling along on a five-game winning streak. They’ve also taken three in a row from the Braves.

With a victory Sunday, they’d also improve to 15-14 and be above .500 for the first time this season.

The bookmakers are banking on it happening. Behind the pitching of starter Jake Arrieta, the Phillies are -130 favorites to complete the sweep in the Braves vs Phillies odds.

Atlanta Braves +110 +1.5 (-177) O 10 (-112)
Philadelphia Phillies -130 -1.5 (+148) U 10 (-109)

Odds taken Aug. 29

Atlanta, losers of two in a row, are +110 underdogs. They’ll counter with righthander Huascar Ynoa, who’ll make his seventh big-league appearance and third start.

The Braves are now 1-8 this season against the runline as a road underdog.

Flying Phils

Philadelphia has won five consecutive games for the first time since July 31-Aug. 5, 2018. This five-game streak was preceded by a five-game slide.

Saturday’s triumph ended up moving them to .500 in the standings for the first time since Aug. 18.

The last time the Phillies moved above the .500 mark was on Sept. 28 of last year when they were 81-80. Another win on Sunday would leave Philadelphia just one game behind the NL East-leading Braves (18-14).

None For The Braves

Atlanta’s ofer in this series has been greased by a 1-for-17 number with runners in scoring position. Atlanta is 6-4 over the last 10 games.

Outfielder Adam Duvall sat out Saturday’s game with a sore right Achilles. He’s expected to play Sunday.

Designated hitter Matt Adams fouled a ball off his left knee in the fifth inning Saturday. His status for Sunday is uncertain.

Arrieta Figuring It Out

Arrieta checked the Washington Nationals on one run and three hits, throwing 54 pitches  over five innings before a rain delay halted his night’s work.

The righthander got the win in Philadelphia’s 8-3 verdict. On the season, he’s 2-3 with a 4.32 ERA.
