Starting Pitchers

Julio Urias pitched 5.1 innings and allowed only three hits and one earned run in Los Angeles’ 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks last Thursday. Urias has now allowed one earned run or none in eight of his last nine starts, and he carries a 17-7 record with a 2.25 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP into Wednesday’s action.

Joe Musgrove allowed one earned run across five innings last Thursday in a 5-4 Padres loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Musgrove has a 10-7 record with a 3.12 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and 169 strikeouts in 170 innings pitched.

Los Angeles Has Been Strong After Losses

The Dodgers tied up their game against the Padres on Tuesday night with a run in the top of the ninth inning, but eventually lost 4-3 to the Padres in the 10th inning. Los Angeles has been pretty quick to turn things around after a loss this season with a 19-5 record in its last 24 games coming off a loss.

Trea Turner went 3-for-5 with two runs in Tuesday night’s loss. The Dodgers infielder is batting .302 this season with 20 home runs, 97 runs and 97 RBIs.

San Diego Picking Up Momentum As Playoffs Approach

Jorge Alfaro picked up the game-winning RBI in extra innings on Tuesday night without even swinging his bat as he took a bases-loaded walk to end the ball game. With the win, the Padres improved to 3-0 over their last three games and to 8-2 over their last 10.

San Diego has now opened up a 2.5-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies for the second wild-card spot in the National League standings. The Padres play all of their remaining eight regular-season games at home, where they are 41-32 this season.

Dodgers Player Prop: Julio Urias To Be Credited With A Win (+110)

Julio Urias has been the pitcher of decision in 11 of his last 12 starts, compiling an impressive 10-1 record over that stretch. Bettors looking to back the Dodgers on Wednesday can get a nice price here on Urias being the game’s winning pitcher given how often he is involved in the decision.

Padres Player Prop: Joe Musgrove UNDER 5.5 Strikeouts (-121)

Joe Musgrove settled for four strikeouts in five innings pitched in his last start against the Cardinals. Musgrove has struck out five batters or less in six of his last nine starts, including a five-strikeout game in his last start against the Dodgers. Look for him to land below six strikeouts again in this one. 

Dodgers: Keys To Victory

The Dodgers are 12-1 SU in Julio Urias’ last 13 trips to the mound and Urias has allowed two earned runs or less in all but one of those 13 starts. Another dominant outing by Urias and a standard day from the offense likely leads to another win as a Dodgers vs Padres prediction.

Padres: Keys To Victory

Joe Musgrove has turned in two strong starts since allowing three runs or more in each of his previous four starts. Musgrove will need to be at his best on Wednesday night to give San Diego a shot at pulling off an upset as a Dodgers vs Padres pick at home.
