The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park.
The Dodgers come into this game with a 94-42 record overall and they have won two games in a row. On Wednesday the Dodgers scored seven runs and that led to the four-run victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers offense has been the strength all season and they are averaging 5.39 runs per game. Catcher Will Smith is having a big season hitting 21 home runs and driving in 80 RBIs.
The Padres sit with a 76-62 record overall and they have won two games in a row. In each of the last two games the offense has scored six runs. The Padres offense hasn’t lived up to the expectations this season and they are averaging 4.41 runs per game. Juan Soto is dealing with a shoulder contusion and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. Manny Machado has hit 26 home runs and driven in 88 RBIs.
On the mound for the Dodgers is Dustin May who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 3.94. In his last start against the Padres, he went five innings giving up four hits and six runs.
On the mound for the Padres is Mike Clevinger who sits with a 5-6 record and an ERA of 3.96. In his last start against the Dodgers, he went 3.1 innings giving up four hits and five runs.
The Padres are 12-2 in their last 14 games following an off day. The over is 6-0-1 in the Dodgers last seven games on grass. The over is 5-0-1 in the Dodgers last six games against the National League West.
Both starting pitchers are coming off a bad start, and they both have losing records. The Dodgers offense is elite this year, and they are going to get to Clevinger here. I also expect May to struggle, and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash here. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
