San Diego is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 12-2 in their last 14 Friday games. The over is 8-3-1 in San Diego’s last 12 Friday games. Los Angeles is 54-17 in their last 71 home games and 37-16 in their last 53 Friday games. The under is 21-4-1 in Los Angeles’ last 26 Friday games. San Diego is 15-40 in these two teams last 55 head to head meetings in Los Angeles.

This should be a very entertaining series to watch as we get to see how the Padres upgraded lineup will fare against the might Dodgers. San Diego is starting Sean Manaea, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 15.1 innings. For the Dodgers, Tony Gonsolin has had an incredible season, but has allowed 12 runs in his last 16 innings of work. I really like the Padres offense after adding Soto and Bell and expect them to score a lot of runs over the next few months. I like the over here.
