Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Prediction

Leading into Friday Night’s NL Divisional Round matchup between Los Angeles and San Diego, the Dodgers have a slight edge on the moneyline. Even though the Padres evened the series in game 2, I expect them to struggle vs Tony Gonsolin. In his last outing vs San Diego, the Dodgers’ right-hander pitched five scoreless innings in a win for the team. He’ll need help as he is still nursing a forearm strain, but I recommend taking the Dodgers on the moneyline.
