Fantasy football guru Matthew Berry has joined the team and his two shows have you covered all season long. Spend weekdays at noon with the Fantasy Football Happy Hour and then, every Sunday at 11am getting ready for kickoff with the Fantasy Football Pregame. Watch both shows live on Peacock and catch replays for the weekday show on the NFL on NBC YouTube channel.

What happened yesterday in St. Louis? It was Philadelphia’s first postseason appearance since 2011. JT Realmuto had never been to the playoffs. His streak of over 1000 games without seeing the playoffs paled in comparison to Jean Segura‘s of more than 1300. Bryce Harper openly spoke about getting Philadelphia back to the playoffs when he signed as a free agent. All three contributed to the Phils’ 9th inning heroics. As a result, the Philadelphia Phillies are on the brink of dismissing the Cardinals and securing a date with the Atlanta Braves in the NL Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The St. Louis Cardinals squandered a 9th inning 2-run lead in the playoffs for the first time in their illustrious history. It unraveled in the 9th yesterday in a hurry. All-Star Ryan Helsley lost his feel of the baseball almost as soon as he took the mound in the 9th due to a middle finger that was jammed earlier in the week. It got messy from there and resulted as mentioned in an elimination game today.

Aaron Nola will look to close out the series for Philadelphia who now play the role of the favorite (-125) at PointsBet. Miles Mikolas gets the ball for the Cards (+110).

If Game 1 somehow failed to grab your attention, did not give you enough reason to sweat this series, PointsBet has boosted odds for a specific prop for each game coupled with a Phillies’ win.

Game 2 - Aaron Nola 5+ K’s & Phillies win (Boosted from +320 to +420)

If your lean is to the Cardinals tonight, PointsBet has boosted odds for a specific prop for each game coupled with a St. Louis win.

Game 2 – Paul Goldschmidt to get 1+ RBI and the Cardinals to win (Boosted from +350 to +450)

And if your focus is on Rogers Centre or Citi Field today, PointsBet has incentivized investors in those games as well with Boosts involving Julio Rodriguez and Juan Soto.

Enjoy the games and enjoy the sweat.
