Dodgers Padres Matchup Preview
The San Diego Padres have let the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies back into the National League West race and even the Los Angeles Dodgers have a glimmer of hope. The Padres had the division in firm control a couple of weeks ago but now their lead is virtually non-existent. They host the Dodgers on Tuesday and while the Padres are at home the pitching edge in this game is with Los Angeles.

Kershaw has given up just two runs this baseball betting season in 14 1/3 innings against the Padres. Kershaw has been the hard luck pitcher for the Dodgers this season and it has continued recently.
