Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers enter tonight’s contest sporting a 20-13 record that pegs them as the best team in the NL West. At the present time Los Angeles owns a 1-game lead over the second seeded Arizona Diamondbacks. With this in mind, it’s clear that Los Angeles needs a turnaround tonight to maintain the status quo. Fortunately for the Dodgers, tonight’s online MLB betting odds are sticking with Los Angeles despite the fact that they’re on the road. To help ensure that they come out on top, Los Angeles will be sending none other than Clayton Kershaw to the mound tonight. So far this season, Kershaw is 1-0 and wields a 2.25 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Corey Seager (2 HR, 9 RBI, .228 BA), Cody Bellinger (14 HR, 38 RBI, .425 BA), and Justin Turner (1 HR, 10 RBI, .278 BA).
San Diego Padres
The Padres leap into tonight’s matchup flashing an 18-14 record on the season. Since they share a division with Los Angeles, San Diego is currently 1 ½ games behind LA. They will undoubtedly be aiming to even up the division by handing the NL West leaders another loss. However, the Padres might not have the same level of talent on the mound as Los Angeles will have this evening. After all, the Padres are starting Eric Lauer tonight. And since Lauer is 2-3 on the year with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP, it’s safe to say that things aren’t looking up for San Diego.
Players to Watch: Eric Hosmer (5 HR, 20 RBI, .261 BA), Manny Machado (5 HR, 14 RBI, .235 BA), and Wil Myers (6 HR, 14 RBI, .248 BA).
