LA Dodgers vs San Diego Padres Prediction

The LA Dodgers are in one of those grooves where you don't bet against them until they run cold. It doesn't hurt that Tyler Glasnow is on the mound, one of the best pitchers in baseball at the moment, with a top-10 WHIP and the leader in strikeouts. The San Diego Padres are one of those teams that lets you down the second you start to believe in them, and they've lost 11 of the last 17 games against the Dodgers. I'll ride the hot hand and side with the Dodgers, and of course, I lay the RL to shave down the expensive juice.
