Philadelphia Phillies vs Los Angeles Dodgers 5/1/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Philadelphia Phillies will go against the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Dodger Stadium, CA, on Monday, May 1, 2023, at 10:10 PM ET.


The Phillies will continue their so far fruitful road trip on Monday night when they head to Los Angeles.


As they go from Houston, the club with the second-best record in baseball last season and the reigning World Series champions, to take on a Dodgers team that won 107 contests last season, the Phillies may be finding their groove at the ideal time.


The Phillies were defeated 4-3 by Houston on Sunday night in a World Series rematch, ending their chances of sweeping the series.


In the one-run defeat, the Phillies managed just five hits. Philadelphia’s record for the year is presently 15-14.


Taijuan Walker will start for the Phillies against the Dodgers on Monday night.


Walker exited his previous start due to forearm stiffness, but after Friday’s bullpen session, he felt okay, so it seems like everything will be fine for him in this start.


Walker made five starts this season and has a just-below-five ERA. He is 2-1. In 25.2 innings thrown; he gave up 21 hits while striking out 23 hitters and walking 14 opponents. 


  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 4-1 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Phillies are 8-7 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of the Phillies’ last 5 matches.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions 5/1/2023


The Dodgers will host the Phillies on Monday night as part of their current homestand. Sunday marked the conclusion of LA’s weekend series with the St. Louis Cardinals.


The Dodgers took both of the first two matches of the series, winning 7-3 on Friday and 1-0 on Saturday in yet another masterpiece from Clayton Kershaw.


As the Dodgers finished the series sweep of the Cardinals, 6-3, Noah Syndergaard earned his first victory as a Dodger in the game on Sunday.


He went 5.1 innings, giving up 8 hits and three runs, while he was supported by five relievers who combined to go 3.2 innings, allowing only two hits.


On Monday night, the Dodgers will use right-hander Tony Gonsolin, who will be making only his second start of the year off the IL.


In his first game back against Pittsburgh, Gonsolin pitched 3.1 innings and gave up two hits but no runs before being removed due to pitch count.


In the game, he had one strikeout and three walks. Gonsolin made one start against the Phillies in the previous season and went six innings without making a decision while only surrendering three hits and a run. 


  • The LA Dodgers are 1-4 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Dodgers are 6-8 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 4 of the Dodgers’ last 5 matches.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. On Monday night in LA, this may very well be a high-scoring contest.


Both teams have starting pitchers who are suffering from injuries, thus this game is probably going to be decided by the bullpen.


A shortcoming for both teams thus far may be seen by taking a deeper look at each bullpen. In terms of ERA, the Dodgers’ bullpen is only ranked 24th in MLB, while the Phillies’ bullpen is the 22nd best.


With that in mind, look at the starting lineups for each club to get a clear picture of this game. The struggling Phillies lineup is only ranked 18th, while the Dodgers are fifth in runs scored per game.


Despite having a higher team batting average, Philadelphia leaves more than seven runners on base each game. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
