The Philadelphia Phillies will try and avoid a sweep at the hands of the Dodgers at home tonight. All MLB odds can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Phillies looked as though they may have been turning things around, but have come back down to earth recently. The Phillies scored 5 runs on 7 hits in the loss yesterday and Kyle Kendrick struggled for his 5th loss of the season. Cole Hamels has been good for the Phillies all season and will take the hill this afternoon. Hamels has only allowed 64 hits in 77 innings of work for a 2.81 ERA.
The Dodgers look like they are returning to form after a little bit of a struggle in the past month. Chris Capuano earned his eighth win of the season as the offense picked him up in a big way. Aaron Harang will look to complete the sweep today and is pitching to a 3.90 ERA so far this season having won 3 of 4 starts.
Philadelphia is 1-5 in their last six games against the N.L. West, 0-6 in their last six home games, and 9-1 in Hamels’ last 10 starts. Los Angeles is 5-1 in their last six road games, 7-0 in their last seven against the N.L. East, and 4-1 in Harang’s last five starts. Philadelphia is 4-1 in Hamels’ last five home starts against the Dodgers.
We like the Dodgers odds here because even though Hamels is a good pitcher, the Dodgers are the better team overall right now so before wagering read online sportsbook reviews.
