Philadelphia Phillies vs Detroit Tigers 2/25/2023 Analysis, Tips and Predictions

On Saturday, February 25, 2023, at 2:05 PM ET, the Philadelphia Phillies will clash with the Detroit Tigers in MLB action at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, FL. Last season marked a major milestone for the Phillies as they celebrated their 140th year in existence and 19th campaign at Citizens Bank Park. They also managed to secure the National League pennant, making them the first team since 2009 to do so, with a regular season record of 87-75. The off-season was marked by a lockout declared by baseball commissioner Rob Manfred on December 2, 2021, which lasted until March 10, 2022, when the MLB and MLBPA reached an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement.

As the 2023 season approaches, most predictions point towards another showdown between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves for the NL East crown. However, the Phillies should not be counted out, as they made a deeper playoff run than both teams last season. Their success in the division will depend largely on the strength of their bullpen. While their batting and starting rotation is solid, the bullpen must prevent losses from becoming an issue. Winning the NL East will be a tough feat, as the division is very competitive, but the Phillies have what it takes to seriously contend.

  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 40-41 in their road games ATS.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Phillies’ last 5 games.
  • The totals hung OVER in 39 of the Phillies’ 81 last games at home.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Detroit Tigers 2/25/2023 Analysis, Tips and Predictions

Detroit Tigers fans were left disappointed by their team’s performance last season. Despite bringing in talented players such as Eduardo Rodriguez, Javy Baez, and Austin Meadows, the organization fell short of expectations and finished with a record of 66-96. Meadows, in particular, had a difficult year, hampered by early Achilles injuries and struggling to find form upon his return. The situation was made worse by the success of Isaac Paredes, the player acquired by the Tigers in exchange for Meadows, who slugged 20 home runs with a .739 OPS for the Rays. However, with only two years have passed since Meadows’ impressive 27 home runs and 106 RBI campaign with Tampa Bay, there is hope that he can bounce back to a similar level in his upcoming age-28 season, provided he can avoid injury.

  • The Detroit Tigers are 44-37 in their road games against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Tigers’ last 5 games.
  • The totals hung OVER in 28 of the Tigers’ 81 last games at home.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Detroit Tigers. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. The Detroit Tigers have been open about their dire need for starting pitching. To have a rotation that can hold up, everything needs to fall into place for the team. Eduardo Rodriguez is returning from his worst season to date, while Spencer Turnbull missed the entire previous season due to Tommy John surgery. Matt Boyd struggled with a torn flexor tendon and was limited to relief appearances. Injuries also sidelined promising pitchers Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal. The team could benefit from bringing in young talent to bolster their rotation. One possible candidate is Flores, who was named Minor League Pitcher of the Year for the Tigers in 2016. He put up impressive numbers with a 7-4 record, 2.79 ERA, and 1.01 WHIP in 103 1/3 innings. Despite the challenges facing the Tigers, they are predicted to win their upcoming game 3-2.
