San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Analysis

San Diego and Los Angeles meet up for the first of a three-game series on Friday, August 5, 2022 at Dodger Stadium.

The Padres are 61-47 overall and 30-24 on the road, which positions San Diego second in the National League West standings and trails the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers by 12.5 games. The Dodgers are the top team in the National League West at 72-33, while posting a strong 35-15 record at home.

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction

The Dodgers send RHP Tony Gonsolin to the mound against San Diego’s 14th ranked scoring offense on Friday night (4.45 RSPG), who’s having a Cy Young caliber campaign for L. A. sitting 12-1 with a 2.41 ERA across 19 starts this season (0.90 WHIP), which already includes a winning performance against the Padres (7.2 IP, 1 ER).

On the other hand, the Padres send LHP Sean Manaea to the hill against L. A.’s second-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.25 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down throughout his first campaign with San Diego currently sitting 6-5 with a 4.25 ERA across 19 starts this season (1.27 WHIP), which already includes a lackluster outing against the Dodgers (4.1 IP, 6 ER).

I’ll back L. A. to cover here, as Gonsolin has tossed five innings or more and allowed two runs or less in 12 of his last 15 starts for the Dodgers (2.57 ERA, 0.84 WHIP); likely presenting an uphill battle for the Padres and Manaea, who’s yielded a miserable 5.49 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across his last eight appearances for San Diego (41 IP, 25 ER).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 6, Padres 2
Best Bet: Dodgers -1.5 (+130)
