The Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers are right back at it Friday (October 16th) after their Thursday night game 1 of the NLCS. The Phillies open the series with a high scoring 8-6 road victory in Los Angeles last night to go up 1-0 in the best of seven. Carlos Ruiz and Raul Ibanez both hit three run homers as Cole Hamels recorded the win for the Phillies. Manny Ramirez homered but later couldn’t come up with a clutch hit with two runners on in the 8th inning. The Dodgers were a poor 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position which can be to blame for their defeat. The Dodgers look to even the series today sending righty Vicente Padilla to the mound. Padilla was 12-6 throughout the regular season with a 4.46 ERA and won his only 2009 postseason start allowing 4 hits and zero earned runs in 7 innings of work against the Cardinals. Pedro Martinez will be pitching for the Angels for game 2 of this NLCS. Martinez was 5-1 with a 3.63 ERA during the season and has yet to see action in this years postseason. Game time for this NLCS game 2 is set for 4:07 PM EST. Betting lines, trends, predictions and betting examples for this Phillies vs Dodgers game are below.

Phillies vs Dodgers Betting Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Phillies 4 Dodgers 3
Money Line Prediction – This was one of the hardest picks of the MLB playoffs so far – Bet on the PHILLIES on the money line at +138. The +138 is great value for a team that just doesn’t seem to lose in the post season lately. It will be tough to get back to back wins on the road against a strong LA Dodgers team, but this Phillies team is the team that can do it. With Pedro Martinez on the mound look for the Phillies to squeak out a win here in game 2 of the NLCS. Lay it down on the Phillies to win at 5dimes.com.
Over Under Prediction – Bet the UNDER 9 total runs at -125. Martinez and Padilla are both great starting pitchers. The bats were going for both teams last night totaling 14 total runs, but don’t look for a repeat in game 2 of the NLCS. Look for a better pitched game all around and the total to fall under the magic 9 number in this Phillies vs Dodgers match up. Throw down on the UNDER at 5dimes.com.
