The Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Philadelphia Phillies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Phillies have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Philadelphia Phillies have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 61 hits and 28 RBI while Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins have combined for 114 hits and 65 RBI. Cole Irvin gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 5.60 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Irvin’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 15 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 77 hits and 52 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 109 hits and 60 RBI. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball, and he is 5-0 with a 3.46 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 3-5 with a 3.07 ERA and 91 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.

The Phillies are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Dodgers are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series, 47-12 in Kershaw's last 59 home starts and 81-25 in Kershaw's last 106 starts. The Phillies are 3-9 in the last 12 meetings in Los Angeles and the Dodgers are 5-2 in Kershaw's last 7 starts vs. Phillies. The over is 4-0 in Kershaw's last 4 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Phillies last 5 road games.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are simply too hot to bet against right now and that becomes even more of the case here with Kershaw on the hill. While he's been more hittable than in the past, Kershaw has still been a quality pitcher this season, and the Dodgers have won 18 of his last 20 starts as a favorite. The Dodgers have won five straight home games when Kershaw is favored and 13 of his last 15 overall. The price we're getting here isn't cheap, but the numbers don't lie. Blindly backing Kershaw in the favorite role has made you a ton of profit. 

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -200
