Philadelphia Phillies vs Los Angeles Dodgers
Date and Time: Thursday, August 12,2021 1:05pm
Venue: Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia PA
Prediction: Philadelphia Phillies
Bookmaker: 1xbet

With only 50 games left in the season and a four-game deficit in the division, the Dodgers started a stretch of 22 games in 23 days Tuesday. The first leg of that gauntlet takes them east to face the Phillies, suddenly a hot team with eight straight wins under their belt.

Philadelphia hasn’t exactly been a place for the Dodgers to pile up wins over the last several years, having lost the last seven of 11 games at Citizens Bank Park and are just 12-11 since the start of 2013.

The running joke has been the Dodgers being back with everybody healthy and that was further dashed this week with Mookie Betts experiencing more hip discomfort and Justin Turner leaving Sunday with a left groin injury.

But with the addition of Trea Turner, Corey Seager’s return and Cody Bellinger looking like he might be turning a corner at the plate, the Dodgers could easily feast on Phillie pitching in this series.
