Phillies Betting Preview
Philadelphia moved to 15-14 taking two of three from Houston. The Phillies closed the month strong after a slow start to the season, winning seven of their final nine games. The Philadelphia offense is scoring 4.45 runs per game, while batting .277, with a .336 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.78 ERA, with a 1.37 WHIP. Brandon Marsh has recorded a hit in seven of the last nine games, and he leads the Phillies in batting (.341). Alec Bohm has produced a RBI in three straight games, and he’s first on the team in RBI (21). Nick Castellanos has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he’s scored a team-high 23 runs.
Taijuan Walker (2-1, 4.97 ERA, 17 Ks) will get the ball for Philadelphia. The eighth-year pitcher struggled in his start against Seattle last week, giving up five earned runs in just four innings. Walker delivered a pair of quality starts in his last two road spots, but he’ll face a stiff LAD lineup here.
Dodgers Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved 16-13 after sweeping St. Louis. The Dodgers capitalized on a return to LA, and picked up their first sweep of the season. The Los Angeles offense is scoring 5.04 runs per game, while batting .238, with a .360 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.30 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. Will Smith has a hit in seven of the last ten games, and he leads the Dodgers in hitting (.300). Max Muncy is first on the team in RBI (22), while Freddie Freeman leads LAD in runs (21).
Tony Gonsolin (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 K) will take the mound for Los Angeles. The 2022 All-Star will make his second appearance of the year after going 3.1 innings in his season debut at Pittsburgh last week. Gonsolin posted an immaculate 16-1 record with a 2.14 ERA last season, and he’ll look to pick up where he left off here at Dodger Stadium.
Philadelphia vs Los Angeles Trends
Philadelphia is 13-16 against the spread this season, with a 12-17 over/under record. Los Angeles is 13-16 ATS this year, with a 16-12-1 O/U record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Los Angeles looked good over the weekend, and there’s a good chance some of that momentum carries over into this series. This will mark Tony Gonsolin’s first home start of the season, and if he can replicate his home form from the 2022 season, LAD should be able keep rolling here. Take the Dodgers to win their fourth straight, and with firepower on both sides, give the Over a look as well.
