The Philadelphia Phillies will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of their series at Dodger Stadium on Thursday night.
The Philadelphia Phillies are 14-17 this season and have won three of their last five games. Philadelphia is coming off of a series win against Seattle, where they won two of the three games in the series. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 3.87 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a .238 opponent batting average this season. The Phillies offense has scored 139 runs with a .249 batting average and a .314 on base percentage. Bryce Harper is batting .269 with six home runs and 19 RBI’s for the Phillies this season. The projected starter for Philadelphia is Zack Wheeler, who is 1-3 with a 4.10 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 26.1 innings pitched this season.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are 20-9 this season and have won seven of their last nine games. Los Angeles is coming off of a series loss to the Pirates, where they lost two of the three games in the series. The Los Angeles pitching staff has a 2.25 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and a .196 opponent batting average. The Dodgers offense has scored 149 runs with a .238 batting average and a .324 on base percentage this year. Trea Turner is batting .259 with one home run and 21 RBI’s for the Dodgers this season.

Philadelphia is 6-14 in their last 20 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win. The over is 5-0 in Philadelphia’s last 5 games against the NL West. Los Angeles is 41-10 in their last 51 home games and 43-16 in their last 59 Thursday games. The over is 4-1 in Los Angeles’ last 5 Thursday games. The under is 5-0-1 in Philadelphia’s last 6 head to head meetings.
The Dodgers come into this game coming off of a very rare series loss, while Philadelphia has won three of their last five as they try to get back to .500. The Dodgers have the better team and the better pitcher on the mound in this matchup and I like them to bounce back with a win here.
