San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction

The Padres send RHP Mike Clevinger to the mound against L. A.’s top-ranked scoring offense on Sunday night (5.36 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down for San Diego all season sitting 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA across 17 outings on the year (1.16 WHIP), which already includes a miserable performance against the Dodgers (4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER).

On the other hand, the Dodgers send LHP Caleb Ferguson to the hill against San Diego’s 14th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.43 RSPOG), who’s having the best campaign of his four-year career by a comfortable margin with his 1.85 ERA and 0.90 WHIP across 25 bullpen appearances this season, despite Sunday being his first start of the year.

I’ll take the over here, as the total has gone over in five of San Diego’s last six games, and Clevinger is 2-2 with a 4.68 ERA across his last five outings for the Padres (1.36 WHIP), which already includes a losing performance against L. A. (4.2 IP, 5 ER); setting the stage for a high-scoring battle against the Dodgers and Ferguson, who’s 0-2 with a 6.19 ERA in six career starts (1.44 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 6, Padres 5
Best Bet: Over 9.5 (-110)
