The Dodgers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 53 hits and 35 RBI while Corey Seager and AJ Pollock have combined for 97 hits and 58 RBI. Tony Gonsolin gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Gonsolin is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.

The Padres have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs.

The Dodgers are 8-1 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series, 22-6 in their last 28 Tuesday games and 42-17 in their last 59 overall. The Padres are 16-5 in their last 21 home games and 20-6 in their last 26 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Dodgers last 6 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Padres last 4 overall.

Tony Gonsolin has allowed four earned runs and nine hits in his last 11 innings while Zach Davies has allowed three runs and nine hits in his last 13 innings. Both of these pitchers have been highly impressive, and while you can argue Gonsolin has been sharper of the two, getting Davies and these red hot Padres at home for the plus money is a bet I can't pass up. The Padres have been rolling all year and you should be looking to back them whenever priced like this.
