Padres Vs. Dodgers Prediction, Pick, How To Watch

The San Diego Padres take on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Here are our Padres Dodgers predictions and picks in our MLB odds series. Find out how to watch the Padres Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers struggled in April. They lost five of eight games against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Injuries to starting pitchers Walker Buehler and Tony Gonsolin, who did not pitch in the first few weeks of the season, limited their starting rotation. They had to adjust to the loss of key players like Tyler Anderson, a valuable member of their 2022 rotation, and Trey Turner, who is now with the Philadelphia Phillies. All of these disruptions, as well as the fall of Trace Thompson and other hitters, led to mediocre baseball for Los Angeles. A month into the season, the Dodgers were a .500 ballclub on the morning of April 28. They were 13-13 and stuck in the dirt.

However, since then, he has found a solution. Offense just got better. Gonsolin is back in the rotation. Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman have provided much of the offense, especially in the recent series victory over the National League playoff contender Milwaukee Brewers. The Dodgers are 10–2 in their last 12 games, and they are now on top of the National League West. It is up to the San Diego Padres to see if they can change the story of the NL West. This series could play a significant role in influencing the overall narrative of the division in 2023.

Why the Padres Can Cover the Spread

The Padres – It’s no secret – hit the ball away from Petco Park. They score higher than Petco. Hitters are more rested on offense and there are more hitter-friendly ballyards. All of these ingredients work into the likelihood that the San Diego Dodgers will get Dustin Mays into the stadium and strike out early against Los Angeles. With veteran starter Blake Snell on the mound, San Diego should feel good about its pitching position in this contest. The Padres also have Fernando Tatis in their lineup, which gives them an additional source of offense against the Dodgers. San Diego defeated the Dodgers in the 2022 National League Division Series. Friday night’s series opener should give the Padres plenty of confidence.

Why the Dodgers Can Cover the Spread

The Dodgers have Dustin May as their starter. May is learning to pitch, but he has such easy power and bad late movement on his pitches that he doesn’t need to think about how he goes about his business. May should be able to limit an inconsistent San Diego offense in this game. With Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman hitting the ball better — as the Dodgers’ Milwaukee series showed earlier this week — Los Angeles should have enough offense to back up Dustin Mays in this game.

Final Padres-Dodgers Predictions And Selections

The Dodgers are starting to find their winning form, but the Padres are a formidable opponent and tend to hit better away from home. You should stay away from this type of game. Look for live-betting play or better pregame play this weekend.
