The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Dodgers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Dodgers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs.

The Padres are 16-35 in their last 51 games as an underdog, 5-16 in their last 21 during game 2 of a series and 4-15 in their last 19 road games. The Dodgers are 21-6 in their last 27 Tuesday games, 59-23 in their last 82 home games and 20-8 in their last 28 overall. The over is 4-1 in Padres last 5 road games. The over is 2-0-2 in Dodgers last 4 overall. The Padres are 17-44 in the last 61 meetings in Los Angeles and 17-41 in the last 58 meetings.
Richards hasn't been great in his last two starts and was just rocked by the Dodgers in his last outing, but the Padres offense has been more than hot to give him a punchers chance. Stripling is 3-0 this season, but his numbers haven't been great, and he just allowed six hits and four runs in 5.2 innings against the Padres. The bottom line here is neither pitcher has been great through three starts and the offenses for both clubs are hitting well. This could go either way. I'll take my chances with the big plus money.
Give me the Padres.
