Dodgers at Phillies picks and predictions

prediction

Dodgers 5, Phillies 2

moneyline

gimme the DODGERS (-140) because they have a 3-phase edge over the Phillies in starting and relief pitching and hitting.

Both Gonsolin and Eflin have fantastic advanced pitching numbers thus far in 2022 but I’m higher on Gonsolin since he has a career 2.62 ERA and 3.59 FIP whereas Eflin has a career 4.52 ERA and 4.38 FIP.

Only 4 of Eflin’s 6 pitches have a minus-run value, according to Statcast, while 3 of Gonsolin’s 4 pitches have a minus-run value and his splitter has the fourth-best run value in baseball.

The Dodgers are 15-8 vs. right-handed starters and rank 1st in wRC+ (123), wOBA (.341) and BB/K rate (0.56) and 2nd in hard-hit rate (34.7%) against righties, per FanGraphs.

Conversely, the Phillies are 11-17 against righty starters and rank 22nd in BB/K rate (0.33) and 18th in hard-hit rate (28.9%) vs. right-handed pitching.

LA’s bullpen ranks 2nd in xFIP (3.30) and 1st in both EV (85.9 mph) and hard-hit rate (26.6%), according to FanGraphs. Philly’s bullpen is 26th in xFIP (4.20) and 21st in hard-hit rate (39.6%).

BET the DODGERS (-140).

Run line/Against the spread

PASS because the Dodgers -1.5 (+115) isn’t a steep enough payout even though LA is 11-7 RL as a road favorite.

Over/Under

BET the UNDER 9.5 (-115) Because both starters grade in the 90th percentile or better in hard-hit rate, expected ERA and xwOBA, according to Statcast.

The Dodgers are also 5-11-2 O/U as road favorites, the Phillies are 0-3 O/U as home underdogs and Citizens Bank Park has the lowest run factor in MLB.
