San Diego is 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-5 in their last 6 games. The under is 5-0-1 in San Diego’s last 6 game two’s of a series. Los Angeles is 39-14 in their last 53 Saturday games. The over is 9-3 in Los Angeles’ last 12 Saturday games and the under is 8-3-1 in their last 12 game two’s of a series. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


The Dodgers continue to play very well and they are starting to pull away with the lead in the NL West. San Diego is struggling right now and they have not been able to score consistently in recent games. The Padres will turn to Joe Musgrove, who has allowed 10 earned runs over his last 13.1 innings pitched. The Dodgers will start Julio Urias, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last five starts. I have to roll with the Dodgers once again in this game.
