Los Angeles is 40-16 at home against a team with a losing record, 63-29 in their last 92 home games, and 2-5 in their last seven games. San Diego is 4-9 in their last 13 road games, 2-7 against a team with a winning record, and 1-5 in Kelly’s last six starts. San Diego is 5-14 in their last 19 games in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers are a big favorite and while I don’t love the price there really isn’t anywhere else to go.
