The Philadelphia Phillies are hoping for the 2022 season to be back to normal with COVID restrictions lifted and the threat of a shortened season gone since both sides settled on a new collective bargaining agreement.
But the Phillies aren’t hoping everything is back to normal. The narrative that will run through the season like the red pinstripes in their jerseys is the Phillies’ playoff drought. The Phillies have not made the playoffs since 2011. With an expanded playoff and the added firepower of Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos to go with MVP Bryce Harper, the Phils are swinging for extraordinary on the field.
For fans visiting Citizens Bank Park and the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, here’s a guide to get you ready for a new season.
How to bet on the Phillies
You can bet on the Phillies at any PA sports betting apps like DraftKings, BetMGM, and FanDuel. Some ways to wager on baseball include futures bets such as win totals, odds to win the World Series, and division winners.
For individual games, sportsbooks are loaded with options to bet on the Phillies beyond moneyline, run line, and total runs.
Is sports betting legal in Philly? Can I bet at Citizens Bank Park?
Sports betting is legal in Pennsylvania. There are no sports betting kiosks at Citizens Bank Park. However, since you are physically located in PA, you can bet on any of the state’s legal, regulated sports betting apps. While we were at Citizens Bank Park for a media preview, we placed a bet on the Phillies to make the playoffs.
