Los Angeles is 67-23 in their last 90 game two’s of a series and 38-14 in their last 52 Saturday games. The over is 9-2 in Los Angeles’ last 11 Saturday games. San Diego is 5-0 in their last 5 Saturday games and 5-0 in their last 5 games against the NL West. The over is 7-2-1 in San Diego’s last 10 Saturday games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in San Diego. 


Both of these teams have played well in recent games and each team is hitting the ball better than they did to start the year. Los Angeles is starting Dustin May, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. The Padres will turn to Blake Snell, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in four straight starts. This pitching matchup should be a good one to watch, but I am going to side with May and the Dodgers in this game.
