Los Angeles Dodgers vs Philadelphia Phillies 5/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Los Angeles Dodgers will meet with the Philadelphia Phillies in MLB action in Citizens Bank Park, PA, on Sunday, May 22, 2022, at 1:35 PM ET.

 

The Los Angeles Dodgers are off to one of the finest starts in the big leagues, but its marquee players are only now providing the type of output they hoped for. After laboring to hit his first long ball until April, Mookie Betts found his power stroke.

 

With another home run on Saturday, Betts now leads the team with nine home runs and is looking like a candidate for MVP for this powerhouse squad.

 

Betts and the Dodgers offense stepped up once again on Saturday. Betts went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs, and a run scored, and a clutch Gavin Lux single in the eighth inning gave the Dodgers a lead they wouldn’t surrender. 

 

The Dodgers are again among the finest teams in baseball, with three former MVPs among their starting lineup.

 

Clayton Kershaw, a long-time Dodger veteran, recently joined fellow starter Andrew Heaney on the disabled list, hurting the pitching rotation. Kershaw is expected to be out for at least three more weeks, but the Dodgers will go on. 

 

  • The total went OVER in 8 of the LA Dodgers’ last 10 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 7-0 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • Los Angeles is 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches on the road.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 5/22/2022

 

Since demolishing the Dodgers in three of four matches last weekend in LA, the Phillies struggled. Since winning the first three matches in Los Angeles, the Phillies dropped four of their last five matches.

 

As expected, MVP Harper was out of all five matches as he recovers from a platelet injection to relieve soreness in his throwing shoulder. Harper returned as the Phillies’ designated hitter against the Dodgers on Saturday, seeking to get the club back on track.

 

The Phillies lost a 4-1 lead on Saturday, falling 7-4 despite home runs by Kyle Schwarber and Alec Bohm.

 

The Phillies entered the year with a lineup stacked with power hitters but a defense that was likely below average. The Phillies’ defense grew even poorer with Harper having to serve as a designated hitter as he heals from shoulder concerns.

 

Philadelphia is ranked 17th in the league in errors per game, and they’ve been forced to use free-agent addition Kyle Schwarber in the outfield more than they planned.

 

As a result, Philadelphia’s outfield range is among the poorest in MLB. Eflin, the starting pitcher on Sunday, will be tasked with keeping the ball down and reducing the amount of effort his outfield will have to perform.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia’s previous 5 matches.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 1-5 SU in their previous 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Philadelphia’s last 6 matches against the LA Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers received all they could ask for from Gonsolin as a starter. He kept them in every game he’s thrown this year, allowing just three earned runs in three road outings.

 

The Dodgers won the opening two games of the series and will seek to finish off a tired Philadelphia Phillies squad that is playing its 23rd game in 22 days.

 

With Efflin averaging only 81 pitches per appearance, the Dodgers should be able to take advantage of a Philly bullpen that was stretched over this run and will likely be forced to do so again in this game.

 

In this game, Gonsolin should be able to get the Dodgers into the seventh inning, and he will most likely be asked to do so after a bullpen game on Saturday. The Dodgers will win predicted
