The Los Angeles Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Padres come into thai game 74-60 record overall and on Saturday the pitching really struggled on the way to the blowout defeat. The Padres pitching and offense have both been pretty middle of the road in terms of the stats. The Padres are averaging 4.45 runs per game which is 13th in the league. Manny Machado has hit 25 home runs and driven in 47 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who sit with a 91-41 record overall and the offense finally got back on the right track on Saturday. The Dodgers offense and pitching are both ranked 1st in baseball. The Dodgers offense is averaging 5.31 runs per game and they are going to need the offense to be strong again here. Trea Turner has hit 19 home runs and driven in 88 RBIs. 

On the mound for the Padres is Mike Clevinger who sits with a 5-5 record and an ERA of 3.69. In his last start against the San Francisco Giants, he went five innings giving up five hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Dodgers is Ryan Pepoit who sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 4.02. In his last start against the Miami Marlins, he went six innings giving up four hits and two runs. 

The Padres 2-6 in their last eight games against a team with a winning record. The over is 5-0 in Clevinger’s last five road starts. The over is 4-1 in the Dodgers last five home games. The over is 5-1 in the Padres last six games against the National League East. 

The trends point towards the over and I don’t really trust either of these pitchers here. Pepoit sits with an ERA of 4.02 and the Padres might get close to this over by themselves. The Dodgers bats are also hot heading into this game. Back the over to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
