Los Angeles Has Won Seven of Last Eight vs San Diego

Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder A.J. Pollock (11) rounds the bases on his three run home run during a MLB game between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 11-5 in 2020 with a 2-1 record in three games against the San Diego Padres. After taking two of three from the Padres in San Diego last week, the Dodgers will try to pick up another win on Monday against the Padres in Los Angeles.

  • Padres vs Dodgers Matchup Report

Opening Odds Analysis

Los Angeles is a -165 favorite at home while the Padres are going off as +155 road underdogs. The Dodgers have been favored in all 16 of their games this season and in each of their last 28 regular-season games dating back to last season. The total has moved down slightly from its opener of 8.5 runs to 8 runs.

Starting Pitchers Analysis

Dustin May had his longest outing of the season last Tuesday against the Padres when he pitched six innings and allowed three hits and two runs while recording eight strikeouts. The 22-year-old has a 2.63 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP through his first three starts this season, which have all been Dodgers victories.

Garrett Richards managed only three starts in his debut season with the San Diego Padres in 2019, recording an ugly 8.31 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in just 8.2 innings in his return from Tommy John surgery. Richards is off to a much better start in 2020 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP through his first three starts.

San Diego News & Notes

The Padres offense racked up nine runs in a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday to clinch their series against Arizona two games to one. Fernando Tatis Jr. has six home runs in his last six games, including four straight games with a homer. Over his last four games, Tatis is batting .500 with six runs, five round-trippers and seven RBIs.

San Diego’s 5.38 runs per game is just a hair behind Los Angeles’s 5.44 runs per game for the top spot in the major leagues. But with a 4.31 team ERA, the Padres are quite a bit behind the Dodgers at 2.53.

Los Angeles News & Notes

Los Angeles took two of three games from the San Francisco Giants over the weekend to improve to 4-1 over their last five games and 9-3 over their last 12. It is somewhat bizarre that the Dodgers are just 4-3 against the Giants, losing as a -310 favorite on Saturday and as favorites of -320 and -375 in their season-opening series against San Francisco. The Dodgers are 10-2 this season when favored by less than -300.

As dominant as the Dodgers have been this season, it looks as though the Padres (9-7) and Colorado Rockies (11-4) might keep them honest in their quest for an eighth straight NL West Division title.

Betting Pick: Los Angeles -165

Bettors looking for a spot to pick off the Dodgers with an underdog bet on the Padres might consider rolling with Zach Davies on the mound Wednesday or Chris Paddack on Thursday. Garrett Richards allowed four runs in his last start against Los Angeles and doesn’t figure to do much better this time around.
