Philadelphia Phillies vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the over here. I think the Phillies keep the offensive momentum going against Landon Knack, who hasn’t really been anything special this season and is being forced into his role because of necessity with all of the injuries in the Dodgers’ rotation. On the other side, Nola has had issues keeping runs off of the board in spots and the Dodgers got to Nola for 10 earned runs in two starts last season. All in all, I think the over cashes here.
