Dodgers vs Padres Trends

Shane’s Free Pick

Joe Musgrove is coming off a terrible start, and the Padres offense is going to really struggle to get any type of offense going against Urias. The Dodgers are going to score at least five runs and that will be enough for them to get it done against the Padres. Back the Dodgers on the run line. 

Shane’s Pick Dodgers -1.5
