Los Angeles Dodgers vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 5/20/2022

 

The Phillies‘ formula for dominating baseball is based on the team’s ability to score runs. The Phillies are second in the NL East in runs scored thus far this season.

 

Even though MVP Bryce Harper is out with a right elbow injury, the squad continues to score runs. Harper sat for the fourth straight game on Thursday as he recuperates from a plasma injection in his injured elbow as he heals from a tiny rupture in his throwing arm’s ulnar collateral ligament.

 

Harper was the team’s designated hitter for the past few weeks despite his injuries. The Phillies offense was shut down by Yu Darvish and the Padres on Thursday afternoon sans Harper.

 

In a 2-0 setback, the Phillies mustered only six hits and struck out eight times. The Phillies’ lineup, which includes Harper, Kyle Schwarber, Nick Castellanos, and Rhys Hoskins, was anticipated to put up power numbers this year. The Phillies are 6th in home runs, 3rd in slugging percentage, and 5th in OBPS in Major League Baseball.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 matches against the LA Dodgers.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the Phillies’ last 5 matches at home.
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Philadelphia’s last 12 matches in the National League West Division.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers go to Philadelphia for the first of ten away games.

 

Unlike the Phillies, the Dodgers were allowed to come to Philadelphia on Thursday and have a day free before the rematch from last weekend. The Dodgers were beaten by the Phillies in three of their four matches in Los Angeles.

 

While Urias underperformed against the Phillies in his last start, he was an above-average road pitcher throughout his career. Urias has a career record of 19-8 on the road, with 195 hits surrendered in 228 innings.

 

Suarez’s proclivity for letting up the long ball this season is a huge issue for the Phillies in their opening game. He permitted 5 home runs and 12 extra-base hits against only 159 hitters this season after surrendering only 4 home runs and 13 total extra-base hits against 418 batters last year.

 

In the home run-friendly Philly ballpark, expect the Dodgers’ power-hitting rotation of right-handed hitters, including Betts and both Turners, to have a field day. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
