Phillies Dodgers Betting Tips – Phillies Facing A Sweep In The City Of Angels

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/12/2012 4:16:19 PM

Find an online betting sharp that had Philadelphia in last place in the National League East to go into the All-Star break and back every pick they make, because the Phillies have been abysmal, although injuries have had a lot to do with that. Still, they face an uphill climb as they head to Los Angeles on Monday and even though they could get their ace back, it may not be enough to stop the Dodgers from a sweep.

What: MLB Betting
When: Monday, July 16th – Wednesday, July 18th
Where: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA

Joe Blanton (7-8, 4.98) vs. Chris Capuano (9-4, 2.91) – Monday, 10:10 PM ET

Blanton has been up and down in 2012, which is what you would expect of him, but he was forced into more responsibility with injuries to the rotation. He’ll take on a Dodgers team that he has faced five times with a 1-0 record and a 3.52 ERA, and he has been decent in Los Angeles with a 4.09 ERA. The Dodgers counter with Capuano, who has been one of the biggest sports betting surprises of the first half and has been Los Angeles’ best pitcher, and he has plenty of experience against the Phillies as he was in New York last year with the Mets. Capuano is 1-2 in seven games (six starts) against Philadelphia with a 3.47 ERA, but at Dodger Stadium he has shined with a 5-1 mark in nine starts with a 1.83 ERA.

With Capuano’s splits at home in 2012, it would be difficult to go against the Dodgers, no matter who is on the mound for Philadelphia. Stick with the home team. 

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers

Kyle Kendrick (2-8, 4.89) vs. Nate Eovaldi (1-5, 4.21) – Tuesday, 10:10 PM ET

Kendrick has been starting far too often for the Phillies and he is little more than a spot starter in the rotation, although he is an effective middle reliever and he’ll return there when Roy Halladay comes back, which could be in this series, so check your sportsbook. Kendrick has crazy numbers against the Dodgers with a 2-2 record in eight games (seven starts) and an ERA of 8.00, and he is 2-2 in four games (three starts) in Los Angeles with a 10.43 ERA. Eovaldi has never seen the Phillies in person and has a youngster, he is still getting his feet wet in the majors as this is his first full year in the big leagues.

He is 0-2 in three starts at home with a 3.93 ERA, and he may have an edge over Kendrick because the Phillies haven’t seen him, so take Los Angeles. But if Halladay is back for Philadelphia, go to the other side.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers

Cliff Lee (1-5, 3.98) vs. Clayton Kershaw (6-5, 2.91) – Wednesday, 3:10 PM ET

That battle of southpaws that are former Cy Young winners may have lost a little of its luster as neither has been up to their standards this season, but facing another great pitcher can always inspire. Lee got his first win of the season in his last start of the first half and the Phillies threw him right back out there for the first start of the second half against Colorado, hoping to keep him rolling. He has outstanding numbers against the Dodgers, going 2-1 in four starts with an outlandish 0.90 ERA and in Los Angeles, he is 1-0 in two starts with a 0.59 ERA. Kershaw has yet to win against the Phillies with an 0-4 mark in seven starts and a 4.95 ERA, and he is 4-3 in 10 starts at home with an ERA of 2.57. If the reigning Cy Young winner can’t get up for a meeting with Lee, then the Dodgers could be in trouble in the second half.

However, that won’t be the case as Kershaw will have his best stuff ready to go for this matinee in Los Angeles and while the odds are that Lee will pitch well, he has been more inconsistent  than his younger counterpart this year and it could be a mixture of injuries and age catching up to him, which happens to everyone. While Cole Hamels has been fantastic, everyone has been looking to Lee to carry the staff and it gets tough after a while. Take Los Angeles in your MLB betting sports betting picks.
