The Padres came alive late against the Dodgers, granted it was after Clayton Kershaw left the game, but this is still a Padres team that’s scoring the most in the majors this season and one that also has Zach Davies starting here. Davies has been arguably San Diego’s best and most reliable starting pitcher this season, sporting a 7-2 record with a 2.48 ERA and his trademark changeup is holding opponents to just a .175 batting average this season and when that’s Davies’ most used pitch, it’s not getting beat often. Tony Gonsolin goes for the Dodgers and while he’s been a good fill-in pitcher, I’m just not ready to pass up plus money with the Padres for him. Give me San Diego and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
