Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
These games are both very important to both teams involved. The Phillies are attempting to stay at the top of their division, while the Dodgers are trying to gain ground on the Giants.
The Dodgers are the better team and I feel they will show that on Wednesday. I know the Phillies have been a very hot team, but I am not sold on them in this one.
This definitely has the chance to be a good pitching matchup. I look for Price to pitch slightly better than Gibson.
I will go with the Dodgers on the moneyline here.
