The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 2nd game of a 4-game set in L.A on Friday night. The Dodgers took game 1 by a 3-1 margin with Mitch White eating up 4.2 innings. Joe Musgrove was mostly dominant giving up 3 runs in 7 innings. All 3 earned runs were via the home run. The Dodgers are now 47-28 in the NL West, leading the division by 2.5 games over the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers are 7-3 in their last 10 games despite some injuries in the pitching, while the Padres are 5-5 in their last 10 and have had some offensive pieces missing all season. The Padres could be a scary team one they get Machado back in the lineup with Tatis once he comes off the IL. The Padres must find a way to circumvent the absences because they are just 23-54 in their last 77 vs the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are heavy favorites of -165 over at the BetMGM Sportsbook. The Padres are listed as +135 on the money line. A $100 wager would yield a return of $135. The same wager on the Dodgers would bring back $60. The BetMGM Sportsbook is offering a first bet RISK-FREE up to $1,000 when you sign up using the code VIBONUS

The -165 on the Dodgers is a little heavy, but the run line might be a better option. The Dodgers are 1-.5 +130, which give you the option of buying back some value. The Dodgers have won 47 games, of the 47 wins the Dodgers have covered the run line in 43 games. So, if you think the Dodgers are going to win, head on over to the BetMGM app and put in a run line play.  When you sign up and use the VIBONUS code, your first play is risk free up to $1,000 (terms and conditions apply).

The pitching matchup will feature Gonsolin and Snell. Blake Snell has not lived up to the hype in the last couple seasons, and this season he owns a 5.60 ERA with no recorded wins. He has allowed 4 earned runs in 3 of his last 4 last 4 games and has not pitched into the 7th inning in that stretch.

Gonsolin is having a complete 180 of a season from Snell. He has a 9-0 record to go along with a 1.58 season ERA. He has been even sharper at home with a 0.81 ERA. Out of his 14 total games, he has not allowed more than 2 earned runs. The Dodgers are 11-3 in games that Gonsolin has started, and 9 of those he did enough to earn the win.

The current total is set to 7.5. Game 1 of this series saw 4 total runs, but the over is 7-3 in their last 10 meetings in Los Angeles. The BetMGM Sportsbook is a great place to wager on the total and the first bet could be risk free up to $1,000.  At sign up you must utilize the VIBONUS code.
