Padres at Dodgers odds, lines, picks and prediction

MLB odds courtesy of BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports for a full list. Odds last updated at 7:51 a.m. ET.

  • Money line: Padres +105 (bet $100 to win $105) | Dodgers -130 (bet $130 to win $100)
  • Against the spread/ATS: Padres +1.5 (-190) | Dodgers -1.5 (+155)
  • Over/Under: 7.5 (O: +100 | U: -120)


Padres 4, Dodgers 2

Money line (ML)

Based on the pitching matchup, SAN DIEGO (+105) is the way to go.

Musgrove is a stud. He might be 0-2 since tossing the Padres’ first no-hitter in franchise history April 9, but the right-hander only allowed 3 runs in those two outings.

In his first game after the no-no in which he threw 112 pitches, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the top of the fifth inning after tossing 81 pitches.

In his next start, Musgrove was a hard-luck loser, allowing just 2 runs in 7 innings and striking out 13 in a 3-1 loss to Milwaukee.

There’s no doubt he’s capable of shutting out the Dodgers if he’s on top of his game.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

Padres +1.5 (-190) is just too chalky. However, back the alternate line of PADRES -1.5 (+180) with a QUARTER-UNIT wager.

ATS records: Padres 12-11 | Dodgers 11-10

Over/Under (O/U)

Back UNDER 7.5. (-120) to win 30% OF 1 UNIT. A $100 player should bet $36 to win $30; a $10 player should bet $3.60 to win $3.

The Under is 4-0 in Musgrove’s starts and 2-1 in May’s starts.

Plus, both clubs have been paying off for Under bettors so far this season, but the last two games of this series finished Over.

Prior to the two Overs, San Diego played six Unders in a row and Los Angeles was on a 5-game Under streak.

O/U records: Padres 8-15 | Dodgers 8-13
