MLB Monday Free Betting Pick- Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

Phillies Baseball

Phillies and Dodgers Both Lead Their Divisions

Game 1 of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Philliesof three-game clash gets underway at 7:05 p.m. The battle between a pair of division leaders in the NL could be telling.

VietBet has opened the Dodgers as -134 road favorites with the total set at 8.5. The Dodgers are now -145 and the total is down to 8o -115.

The Dodgers’ lead in the NL West stands at a game and a half with a 7-3 mark in their last 10 games. They started this current 10-game road trip with a 2-1 series victory against Milwaukee over the weekend.

Los Angeles is 55-44 overall with a 27-20 record on the road. The total went OVER the VietBet closing line in two of the three games against the Brewers with the Dodgers scoring a combined 19 runs.

Los Angeles is expected to get this series underway with Ross Stripling as its starter. The right hander has won his last two starts by allowing just one earned run on nine hits in a total of 12 innings pitched. Going back over his last 10 starts, the Dodgers have gone 8-2.

He comes into this game with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.

Phillies Have Braves Hot on Their Heels

Philadelphia started the second half of its season with a 2-1 series victory against San Diego. That includes a Sunday doubleheader where they split. The Phillies are 55-43 overall and a game up on Atlanta in the NL East.

They have been a tough out at home at 32-17. The total has stayed UNDER the VietBet closing line in five of their last seven games played at home.

After a brief 10-day stint on the DL for a finger injury, Zach Eflin is expected to return to Philadelphia’s starting rotation on Monday night. The right-hander won six-straight starts. He did not give up more than two earned runs in any of the outings.

That streak came to an end against the New York Mets on July 9th. He allowed three earned runs on five hits over five innings on the mound. Eflin did not get tagged with the lost in the Phillies’ 4-3 defeat. His current ERA stands at 3.15 with a 1.08.

This should be a great matchup on the mound with a possible play on the UNDER at BetAnySports, but I am going with the favorable moneyline on the Phillies as home underdogs.
