It's the Padres at Dodgers and LA has won eight of the last ten meetings.

LA can be gotten for -150 and San Diego +140.

The Dodgers were seeing nearly 80% of the action at some books with a line that has generally trended downwards from -170.  This is an indication that the books believe the Padres win here.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Padres RH Chris Paddack (3-1, 1.55 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 3.31)

Paddack won his third straight start and posted his second scoreless outing over that time in last Monday's victory over the New York Mets, setting career highs in innings (7 2/3) and strikeouts (11). The 23-year-old rookie, who has yielded no more than three earned runs in any of his seven turns, is holding opponents to a .130 average and owns 46 strikeouts versus only 10 walks across 40 2/3 innings. Paddack looks to improve on his 1-0 record and 1.80 ERA in three road starts as he opposes the Dodgers for the first time.

Kershaw is coming off the worst of his first five starts in 2019, but was credited with the win Wednesday against Atlanta despite surrendering season highs in runs (four) and hits (nine) across 6 2/3 innings. The three-time Cy Young Award winner settled for a no-decision in his previous outing, allowing three runs in six frames at San Diego. Former teammate Manny Machado and Ian Kinsler each homered off the 2014 NL MVP in that game, but Kershaw is 18-6 with a 1.97 ERA in 35 career starts versus San Diego.

The Dodgers are 23-5 in Kershaw’s last 28 starts vs. Padres.

None of the games Paddack has started in have resulted in the opposing team scoring more than 4 runs.  That said, something has to give, and this could be the night.  LA has scored plenty in recent games while San Diego has allowed a lot of runs (5) in five of their last ten.

Let's take the OVER 7 here
