Dodgers vs Padres Odds
-120 / -102
-120 / -102
The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres continue their season series, with this one coming in Los Angeles.
Padres manager Bob Melvin, who’s understandably frustrated with his club’s recent play this season, had a simple message for the team after its latest loss in Minnesota: play better.
San Diego will have to do so if it wants to outlast the Dodgers in the NL West or make noise in October.
Can the Padres get back on track against the Dodgers in Los Angeles?
The Parlay (+420):
- Dustin May Over 4.5 Strikeouts
- Will Smith 2+ Total Bases
- Dodgers Moneyline
Same-Game Parlay – Dodgers vs Padres
Dustin May Over 4.5 Strikeouts
While Dustin May has just a 20% strikeout percentage this season, the Padres strike out quite a bit. San Diego has six hitters in its projected lineup who have at least a 20% strikeout percentage against right-handed pitching this season.
May has gone over this number in two of his last three starts, including his last outing, which was against San Diego on the road.
I have May projected for five strikeouts here, which gets us through the first leg of this parlay.
Will Smith 2+ Total Bases
Blake Snell’s problem this year hasn’t necessarily been power prevention, but instead, it’s been allowing too many walks. He has a 10% walk percentage on the season, which is too high for a pitcher of his caliber.
Still, he’s also allowing a .154 ISO to right-handed batters this season.
Will Smith has a .231 ISO against left-handed pitching this season. He’s perhaps the biggest power threat the Dodgers have against left-handed pitching.
All we need from Smith here is a double or two singles to get us through the second leg of this same game parlay.
It’s one thing for the Padres’ manager to let his team know they have to play better; it’s another thing entirely for them to actually do it.
Facing the Dodgers on the road isn’t exactly a get-right spot for San Diego. I expect the Padres’ struggles to continue here, though they might turn it around when their schedule loosens up.
The first-place Dodgers are 10-2 in their last 12 games, and I don’t see the reeling Padres stopping this train tonight.
It’s Dodgers moneyline to cap off the same game parlay.
