MLB Playoffs Odds – Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia

MLB Playoffs odds favor the Philadelphia Phillies as the National League Championship series moves to Philadelphia for Games 3, 4 and 5.

All of these MLB Playoffs betting games on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday in Philadelphia will be televised on TBS.

MLB Playoffs odds will see Joe Blanton get the start for the Phillies on Monday against the Dodgers Randy Wolf. Blanton had been working out of the bullpen but he is no average starter in MLB Playoffs odds. He started 31 games this sports betting season for the Phillies and last year in MLB Playoffs odds he went 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA in three postseason starts. "I'm ready to do my job, whatever they ask me to do," Blanton said. "If they ask me, I'm ready. I'll do whatever." Blanton is 1-0 with a 2.88 ERA in four career sports betting starts against the Dodgers.

Flexibility is a big key for the Phillies in MLB Playoffs odds against the Dodgers. "I felt like that's the best starting pitching that we've had since I've been here," manager Charlie Manuel said. "I've liked our starting pitching, especially the second half of the season. And there are some things that we can do, because of the short series and everything, the five-game series and also a seven-game series there are things we can do.”

The MLB Playoffs odds in Philly mark a reunion of sorts for Los Angeles slugger Jim Thome who played with the Phillies. "It's definitely a good feeling when you can come back and see people you have been around," said Thome. "With that said, I want to win every game against them now. My time here was great.”

The Phillies will be trying to win the NLCS in MLB Playoffs betting at home so they don’t have to go back to L.A. They are not worried though if they don’t win all three games in MLB Playoff odds. "If we go back, so what? Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino said. "We don't want to go back to L.A. We want to finish it now. But if we don't, we don't."  If neither team wins the three MLB Playoffs betting games in Philadelphia this week, the series will go back to Los Angeles for Games 6 and 7. The Phillies were the best road team in the National League this season so winning in MLB Playoffs betting on the road can definitely be done as they proved in Game 1 sportsbook odds.
