San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Analysis

San Diego and Los Angeles meet up for the second of a three-game series on Saturday, September 3rd at Dodger Stadium.

San Diego is in second place in the National League West with an overall record of 73-59 and 39-31 on the road, which trails the first placed Dodgers by 17 games. The Dodgers currently lead the National League West with a record of 90-41, which has been aided by a sturdy 45-17 tally at home.

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction

The Padres send LHP Sean Manaea to the hill against L. A.’s top-ranked scoring offense on Saturday night (5.31 RSPG), who’s having the worst campaign of his seven-year career sitting 7-7 with a 4.90 ERA across 24 starts this season (1.33 WHIP), which already includes a pair of miserable outings against the Dodgers (8.1 IP, 14 ER).

On the flip side, the Dodgers send LHP Julio Urias to the mound against San Diego’s 13th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.45 RSPG), who’s arguably having the best campaign of his career sitting 14-7 with a 2.32 ERA across 25 starts this season (0.95 WHIP), which already includes a winning performance against the Padres (5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER).

I’ll back L. A. to cover here, as Urias has tossed five innings or more and allowed one run or less in seven of his last eight appearances for the Dodgers (7-1, 1.08 ERA); likely presenting an uphill battle for the Padres and Manaea, who’s 4-4 with a 6.61 ERA in his last ten outings for San Diego (1.65 WHIP), and he’s 0-4 with a 9.00 ERA across five career starts against the Dodgers (1.95 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 7, Padres 3
Best Bet: Dodgers -1.5 (-105)
