The Phillies have an impressive record as well, but with the Dodgers' recent form and superior pitching, they have the edge in this matchup. Additionally, the Phillies have shown some defensive vulnerabilities which the Dodgers can exploit. Expect a closely fought game, but the Dodgers are likely to cover the spread.
