San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers Prediction

Heading into Friday’s NL West showdown between San Diego and Los Angeles, the Dodgers are the heavy favorite on the moneyline. Not only will Los Angeles benefit from having Tony Gonsolin on the mound, but they should have no problem plating runners vs Blake Snell. In his 7 outings, the Padres have yet to win a game with Snell on the mound. I like Los Angeles to cover the runline.
