Prediction

The Padres couldn't do much against Luis Urias and the Dodgers bullpen who held them to 3 runs in the game. Yu Darvish will start for the Padres who was great in his last start holding the Mets to only 1 run across 7 innings and has good numbers against the Dodgers in his career. Clayton Kershaw will get the ball for this game who's having an insane season and has dominated the Padres in his career. Expect a low scoring game as both pitchers will be dominant on the mound. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
