(MLB) Philadelphia vs. LA Dodgers, 05/12/2022 10:10 PM, Score: 9 - 7
Money Line: -134.00 LA Dodgers (Home)
Result: Loss
T.M. Selection: LA Dodgers.

I like the LA Dodgers to win this game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. The Dodgers just lost their most recent series to the Pirates, losing 2/3 of those games and that is a very embarrassing loss for a team like the Dodgers. I think they are going to be upset over that loss and the last time they lost to the Pirates like that they ended up beating them 11-1 in the next game. I think they are going to be looking to take their anger out on the Phillies and they should have a much better chance of winning with their starter here. Tyler Anderson (3-0, 2.78 ERA) has been having a great start to the year and he hasn't been credited with a loss yet. He has been pitching great with a few starts and a few relief appearances this year but he hasn't given up more than 2 runs in any of the games he has pitched in. I think he is going to have another great outing here and the Phillies haven't really been the team they were supposed to be this year either. The Phillies just won 2/3 games against the Mariners but they had a terrible series with the Mets before that, even blowing a 7-1 lead in the 9th inning with their terrible bullpen blowing that game. Zack Wheeler (1-3, 4.10 ERA) is up for the Phillies here and his team hasn't really had much success this year with him starting. He has pitched a lot better in his 2 most recent starts, giving up no runs in either of those games but he also didn't face any really strong lineups in those games either. He has already had a few bad performances this year in his 1st 3 starts and I think he is going to have another bad start here against this strong Dodgers lineup. I expect the Dodgers to bounce back here, I like the Dodgers to win this game.

T.M. Prediction: 7-2 Dodgers.
