MLB FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest MLB trends, Philadelphia is: 3-7 last 10 as an underdog and 1-7 last 8 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game LA Dodgers are: 5-2 last 7 in series, 4-0 last 4 following a win, 9-3 last 12 as a home favorite and 5-0 in Greinke's last 5 home starts with a total set at 7.0-8.5.

Jonathan Pettibone (3-3, 4.14 ERA) has been up-and-down lately. He did pitch well in his last start, giving up just one run against the putrid New York Mets on June 22. However, he's struggled on the road, going 1-2 with a 6.84 ERA in five starts. Zack Greinke (4-2, 3.79 ERA) is coming off a gem against San Diego, allowing just one run and four hits in eight innings as the Dodgers won 6-1 on June 22. He is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA in three games against the Phillies. Pettibone is a 22-year old rookie who is going through ups and downs in his first year in the big leagues. He also left his last start with lower back tightness but is probable to make this start. Pettibone is winless over his last seven outings. He faces a Dodgers team that is finally healthy. They have been one of the biggest underachievers in baseball with tons of high-priced talent. One of those talented players is SS Hanley Ramirez, who is now 16-for-33 (.485) during his last nine games. Greinke is another one of those talented, high-priced players who is a major key to their success. He has struggled on the road this year but at home, is 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA. That's impressive considering the Dodgers have only given him 10 total runs of support. The real key to the Dodgers' resurgence has been rookie OF Yasie Puig, who had three hits on Wednesday in their win over San Francisco and is now batting .435 in June to lead the majors.

MLB FREE PICK: LOS ANGELES DODGERS -182
