Padres vs Dodgers - MLB Pick
The epic collapse of the San Diego Padres continues this month as they will try and slam on the breaks to a disastrous finish on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2nd game of a 3 game series.
The Padres entered action in this baseball betting series at Los Angeles a half a game behind the San Francisco Giants in the National League West Division after leading the race nearly all season long. To make this series even more high pressure and intense is the fact that the Padres were only 2 games behind the Atlanta Braves for the National League Wild Card spot. Game time Wednesday night is set for 10:10 PM Eastern at Dodger Stadium. Tim Stauffer will get the start for San Diego while Los Angeles will counter with Ted Lilly.

The Padres have been a decent road play this year with a mark of 41-34. Since August 26 San Diego has gone just 7-17 to blow what was a solid lead in the NL West. Offensive production has been the main culprit as the Padres rank 20th overall in the major leagues for run production.
Although the pitching staff ranks 2nd overall for staff earned run average the Padres rank just 18th overall for quality starts, which has also played a role in their recent demise.
