Alcantara has a 6-4 lifetime record against the Phillies and a 3.11 ERA in 11 starts. He is 4-1 with a 1.84 ERA in five starts at Citizens Bank Park.
On the road this season, Alcantara is 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in five starts. He has been outstanding in seven outings at night with a 4-1 record and 1.10 ERA.
The Phillies’ Bryce Harper is hitting .360 (9 of 25) off Alcantara in his career with three doubles and one home run and has +1100 National League MVP odds. J.T. Realmuto is 6 for 16 (.375) with one homer but Odubel Herrera is just 2 for 12 (.167) with one double.
Nola has won each of his last three starts with a 2.42 ERA during that span. He pitched eight shutout innings last Tuesday to beat the Brewers in Milwaukee, giving up four hits while striking out six and walking none.
In 17 career starts against the Marlins, Nola is 4-8 with a 3.59 ERA
Nola can be dominant, though.
Aaron Nola recorded 10 straight strikeouts, tying the record for most in MLB history.

Marlins vs Phillies Betting Outlook
Bryan De La Cruz provided one of the few highlights for the Marlins on Sunday in their loss to the Astros when he hit a three-run home off Justin Verlander in the seventh inning. That drew Miami within 5-4 but it got no closer.

Right fielder Avisail Garcia was a late scratch because of left hand inflammation. He is questionable for Monday and scheduled for an MRI.
Phillies pitchers walked 11 on Sunday in the drubbing by the Diamondbacks and their hitters struck out 13 times. Realmuto went 3 for 4 with a double in a losing effort.
Closer Corey Knebel should be available Monday after playing catch Sunday with incident. Knebel felt shoulder tightness while warming up to pitch the ninth inning in Saturday’s win over the Diamondbacks and did not enter the game.
Knebel couldn’t close out this bid – but it was for a good cause.

The Marlins took three of four from the Phillies at home in April in the teams’ only series so far this season. Garrett Cooper went 3 for 8 for the Marlins with one double and a home run and Jazz Chisholm Jr. was 3 for 9 with a double and two triples.
Miami is 30-22 against Philadelphia since the start of the 2019 season.
