LA Dodgers at San Diego Pick

LA Dodgers (3rd - NL West) at San Diego (5th - NL West)
Where: Petco Park
When: April 18, 2018 10:10PM EST
Moneyline: Dodgers -165 / Padres +155
Over/Under: 7.5
By expert handicapper Rich Crew

The Padres will try to avoid the sweep when they play their final game of a three-game set versus the Dodgers at Petco Park. The first pitch is scheduled for 10:10 PM on Wednesday, April 18, 2018. The lines maker at Intertops Sportsbook has the Dodgers as a big -165 road favorite with the total line offered up at 7.5 runs.

The Dodgers roared into San Diego with their bats booming scoring 21 runs in the previous four games. The cool air off the bay hasn't slowed them down in San Diego with 17 runs in the first two games.

The Padres have responded with only six runs in the two matches, but was hitting the ball well before and has failed to score at least three runs in eight of their last ten.

Pitching Match-Up

Dodgers: Kenta Maeda has made two starts this season and is coming off of his shortest of his career lasting just 2 2/3 frames after missing some time. He has a lot of history against the Padres with eight starts over the last two seasons. In 2017 Maeda allowed 14 runs (12 Earned) over four starts against San Diego.

Padres: Luis Perdomo was tossed in his latest after a bench-clearing brawl lasting two innings allowing zero runs on five hits. He's been mediocre this season with his longest outing being five innings. In three starts he's 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA and a bloated 2.09 WHIP.

Betting Trends

Public Money

The public is all over the Dodgers in money line bets reaching over 70% of the action being placed on the visitor. The total has seen favoritism put on the OVER with 56% of the wagers at the windows coming in on that side of the O/U line.

Dodgers at Padres Prediction 4/18/18

Both teams' bats should be booming tonight. The Padres have seven hitters who have strong back numbers against Maeda all recording averages of .300 or above. Nearly the same can be said of the Dodgers projected lineup with six of the batter hitting over .294. In the series, the last eight games had OVER bettors cashing their tickets and both teams are currently on OVER streaks. Iffy starting pitching with both pitchers recording zero quality starts over their last six outings adds to the value.

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
