Pick: Phillies ML (-140)

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies will open up a three game series here on Tuesday night. With the way both of these teams have been playing throughout the first half of the season, this could easily end up being a preview of the NLCS later on in the year. Both teams have gotten off to incredible starts on the year and both teams will look to maintain that momentum against each other throughout the week as they race for the top seed in the National League heading into the All-Star break. This has the potential to be one of the best regular season series of the season between two of the top teams in baseball. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers have had high points and some lows throughout the first half of the season, but they are playing some solid baseball heading into the All-Star break. They will look to maintain that momentum in the opening game of this series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night on the road in Philadelphia. Bobby Miller will get the start for Los Angeles in this game and he comes into this one looking to pick up his second victory of the regular season. He has put up decent numbers in limited appearances, but he will need to bring his ERA down if he really wants to be successful this season, especially in a game where he will face one of the toughest lineups in the league. 

Los Angeles is coming into the opening game of this series on a one game losing streak and as losers of five out of their last 10 so they are experiencing a little bit of one of their low points at the moment. However, they will put it all together into the All-Star and come out of the fire as they maintain the record in the National League heading into the end of the first half of the season. If they want to put themselves back in the top spot, they will need to be successful against Philadelphia throughout the week as they currently trail the Phillies by exactly 3 games. They will have an opportunity to gain some ground with a string of impressive performances.

The Philadelphia Phillies are putting on a display of fantastic baseball throughout the first half of the season. They raced out to an incredible start of the year and established themselves as the clear favorites to win the National League East division. With the injury, it seems more likely that Philadelphia will run away with the division as the Atlanta Braves are posing a diminished threat at the moment. Philadelphia will further establish their division lead and extend their lead on top of the entire National League with a solid performance throughout the week against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Zach Wheeler gets the start of this game for the Philadelphia Phillies and he has been incredible this season. He will look to add another data point onto his potential National League campaign this year. He comes into this game with nine victories on the season and he will look to hit the double digit mark with a solid performance here on Tuesday night at home. He has been extremely consistent this season, logging at least six innings pitched in the majority of his starts this year and he will look to go deep into this ballgame against one of the most dangerous lineups in the league. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Philadelphia is 33-14 at home 

- Philadelphia is 16-11 against teams above .500

- Philadelphia is 43-22 outside of the NL East

This should be one of the best games of the regular season, as the pitching matchup provides plenty of excitement here on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. It will also be two of the top lineups in baseball going head to head this season so when the bullpens come around the scoring could elevate throughout this game and throughout the rest of the week as well. In the end I expect Philadelphia to pick up a victory performance from Zach Wheeler on the mound.
