Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres will meet again to play a 4-game series at the Dodger Stadium. The Padres won 1 of 2 games against the Arizona Diamondbacks while the Dodgers lost their last series against the Rockies. These teams faced earlier this season and the Dodgers won the series 2-1 in San Diego.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 46-28 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5 runs per game and they're batting for .252 AVG, 368 runs scored in 626 hits and 89 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league barely above the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .303 AVG. and 17 home runs. Trea Turner has 53 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.34 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.58 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Mitch White (1-1, 4.25 ERA) will be on the mound for the Dodgers in the 1st game of the series. White hasn't covered more than five innings in any of his five starts with the Dodgers this season and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits including 1 home run in his last game against the Braves. He hasn't pitched against the Padres in his career.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 46-31 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.64 runs per game and they're batting for .242 AVG, have 357 runs scored in 634 hits and 64 home runs, ranking #10 in offense in the league behind the Atlanta Braves. Manny Machado is leading the team with 12 home runs and 46 RBI and a batting average of .327.

Defensively they are allowing 3.7 runs per game and rank #4 in the league. Joe Musgrove allowed 6 runs and took the loss against the Padres but still leads the pitching staff with a 2.12 ERA, 82 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:

Joe Musgrove (8-1, 2.12 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Musgrove suffered his first defeat of the season against the Phillies on Thursday. In six innings, he gave up six runs on seven hits, a walk, and one strikeout. He has a 0-4 record with an ERA of 4.26 and 27 strikeouts in 6 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

San Diego Padres are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

San Diego Padres are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the National League West Division division.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of LA Dodgers' last 7 games played on a Thursday.

Prediction

The Padres struggled in their last 2 series as they have lost 4 of the 6 games and they lost 2 of 3 times against the Dodgers at home earlier this season. They'll send their ace Joe Musgrove for this game who got his first loss of the season allowing 6 runs against the Phillies. Musgrove hasn't recorded a win yet against the Dodgers in his career but has been effective. The Dodgers also struggled in their last series against the Rockies but ended up winning the 3rd game. They'll send Mitch White to the mound who has started only 5 games this season and hasn't allowed more than 3 runs per game. Expect a close game as both pitchers should dominate the offenses. Take the under. 

PICK: Under 8 (-110)
