Philadelphia Phillies vs. L.A. Dodgers Preview

After a red-hot start and leading the NL West for most of the season they have really struggled in the last few weeks and are now in 2nd place in the division 1.5 games back of the Giants.

MLB odds have the Phillies as the slight away favorite with a run total of 8 runs.

In their last games the Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 5-1 while the Dodgers lost to the San Diego Padres 7-2.

This season the Phillies have an O/U record of 54-33 and a run-line W/L record of 38-52 and the Dodgers have an O/U record of 40-45 and a run-line W/L record of 44-46.

The Dodgers are 20-24 on the road this season and the Phillies are 22-24 on the road.

Both teams could use a shot in the arm on offense and after L.A.’s Matt Kemp and Philadelphia’s Chase Utley and Ryan Howard got the day off yesterday all will get the start tonight.


Joe Blanton (7-8 4.98 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies tonight and he did not have a good last start giving up 5 earned runs in 6 innings in a loss to the Braves. Nathan Eovaldi (1-5 4.21) goes for the Dodgers and in his last outing he was solid only giving up 1 earned run in 6 innings in a win over the Diamondbacks.

Blanton has allowed 19 HR in his last 11 games and has given up a long ball in every game in that span.

The Dodgers will likely need a good start from Eovaldi since they only rank 27th in the Majors in runs scored.

The Phillies have won their last 5 games facing the Dodgers in L.A.

In some betting trends for this NL match up the Phillies are 3-9 in their last 12 road games, 4-1 in Blanton’s last 5 starts as a road underdog, and they have an Over record of 28-10 in their last 38 road games.

The Dodgers are 1-5 in their last 6 games, 0-4 in Eovaldi’s last 4 home starts, and they have an Over record of 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite.

Jason’s Pick: I think the Phillies will make a 2nd half run and that will start tonight, as they will beat the Dodgers.
