Halladay returns: Phillies vs Dodgers

Roy Halladay returns from more than six weeks on the DL as the Los Angeles Dodgers host Philadelphia on Tuesday.

LA looks to build on its 48-43 mark against the 40-51 Phillies in MLB betting action at Dodger Stadium. Philly, last in the NL East, is riding a modest 3-game win streak and remains a threat in the NL despite swirling trade rumors.

Halladay, with a record of 4-5 on the season, gets the ball for the Phillies, while the Dodgers trot Nathan Eovaldi to the mound in this one. He is 1-6 so far in 2012. Expect Halladay to open as moneyline chalk here at TopBet.
