Dodgers 4, Padres 3

Money line (ML)

The Friars took Friday’s game, 6-1, and have allowed just three total runs in claiming games one and two of this series. The back-to-back rivalry wins come after San Diego had gone just 2-7 over its previous nine.

The Padres look to be catching the Dodgers at the right time. Los Angeles owns a mere .547 OPS over its last six games. And with the Friars starting Snell in this one, that turns the Dodgers around to their lesser platoon splits (.682 OPS vs. left-handed pitching).

Peg a bit of play on Snell, and bank on the Padres owning the better bullpen. Current Padre bats own an .858 OPS against Bauer. TAKE SAN DIEGO +125.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

Consider a PADRES +1.5 (-160) wager as an undercard bet, especially if a line watch yields a tag closer to -150. The Under is 3-1 in the last four games of this Southern California season series, and a tight game with a total near 7 would not be a surprise on Saturday.

Over/Under (O/U)

Respecting the public here, with no real lean toward any batting or pitching components being under- or over-estimated. PASS.
