Online MLB Betting Odds:
The Phillies slide into this evening’s matchup sporting a 30-23 record that ranks them 3rd in the NL East. Despite floating so close to a .500 record on the year, Philadelphia is only 1 ½ games behind the division-leading Washington Nationals. Philadelphia has been vying to bridge that gap all season long but has been unable to mount any significant win streak and thus are still firmly planted at third. All in all Philadelphia is 5-7 in their last 12 and will need better results to find their way to the top of the NL East. In an effort to ignite a win streak, Philadelphia will be sending Aaron Nola to the mound this evening. Nola is 6-2 on the year with a 2.27 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Odubel Herrera (7 HR, 32 RBI, .320 BA), Cesar Hernandez (7 HR, 21 RBI, .269 BA), and Carlos Santana (9 HR, 33 RBI, .221 BA).
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers bounce into this Thursday night matchup flashing a 26-29 record that ranks them 3rd in the NL West. Considering Los Angeles is riding a 5-year postseason appearance streak, it’s a bit surprising to see them struggle so much this season. Notwithstanding those struggles, Los Angeles is only 3 ½ games behind the division leading Colorado Rockies. With that in mind, it’s clear that the Dodgers are one good win streak away from taking the No. 1 spot in the NL West. Clayton Kershaw will get the start this evening and will be vying to build on his 1-4 record on the year. Kershaw also brings a 2.86 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP to the mound this evening.
Players to Watch: Matt Kemp (7 HR, 31 RBI, .345 BA), Yasmani Grandal (8 HR, 29 RBI, .261 BA), and Cody Bellinger (8 HR, 25 RBI, .235 BA).
