After a gut-wrenching series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Philadelphia Phillies are unlikely in high spirits; their fans certainly aren’t. Despite their horrendous performance against their far inferior Pennsylvania counterpart, Philadelphia still finds themselves in a favorable position when it concerns their odds of winning it all this season.

As July comes to a close, the Phillies sit at 56-49, third in the NL East behind Miami Marlins (0.5 GB) and the juggernaut Atlanta Braves (12.0 GB). The term ‘better than their record’ is a fallacy of sorts; however, the Phillies have certainly shown an ability to rival the top teams in the league at times, as they currently hold the second-best winning percentage since June 1.

Philadelphia currently sits at +1800 odds to finish what they started last season and take home the Commisioner’s Trophy.

Atlanta Braves+330
Los Angeles Dodgers+500
Houston Astros+800
Tampa Bay Rays+850
Texas Rangers+900
Toronto Blue Jays+1200
Baltimore Orioles+1200
Philadelphia Phillies+1800

Sitting eighth in the Majors, the Phillies have certainly made their presence felt but face a long road ahead as they aim to climb toward the top of the league. With less than sixty games remaining this season, they running out of time to do so, but with a well-placed hot streak and a deadline addition or two, anything is possible.

The Phillies already proved that last season.

How will the trade deadline change things?

The MLB trade deadline is less than 48 hours away, and available trade targets are slimming by the minute. Cody Bellinger, Marcus Stroman, and Nolan Arenado have reportedly been taken off the market, while Lucas Giolito, Jordan Montgomery, Jordan Hicks, and Max Scherzer all have new homes. Even Randal Grichuck and CJ Cron have been dealt, leaving the Phillies with few options ahead of the deadline.

The team has been linked to Detroit Tigers’ starter Eduardo Rodriguez after a recently reported scouting mission. They are also among several teams looking to add a right-handed bat, according to the MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, who mentioned the New York Mets’ Tommy Pham and Mark Canhah as two relevant players. Lane Thomas and Teoscar Hernandez are other right-handed candidates who fit the bill.

The deadline will certainly impact the Phillies’ odds. Whether that is a positive or negative impact is to be determined.

If you bet $25 on Philadelphia to win it all, you’d get $475 back. If you use the offer below, that $25 bet could become a $50 bet, which means your returns would be worth $1000!
