Today’s matchup is between the Los Angeles Dodgers (33-14) and the San Diego Padres (31-17). The Dodgers have won 2 of their last 5 games and the Padres are on a 7 game win streak. The San Diego Padres have accomplished back to back sweeps of the San Fransico Giants and the Colorado Rockies.

The Dodgers are starting Clayton Kershaw (LHP), on the mound who is 5-1 in 7 starts on the season pitching a 1.98 ERA, 1.98 FIP, .226 wOBA, K% of 28.2%, BB% of 5.1%, 88.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.78 WHIP in 41 innings pitched.

The Padres are starting Dinelson Lamet(RHP), who is 2-1 in 9 starts with a 2.24 ERA, 2.93 FIP, .238 wOBA, K% of 32.9%, BB% of 7.2%, 89.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.92 WHIP in 52.1 innings pitched.

The Dodgers are the 4th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Padres are 12th.

On the hitting side, the Dodgers have a .3.45 wOBA and a .337 OBP. The Padres have a .351 wOBA and a .341 OBP. The Dodgers have 87 HRs this season while the Padres have 80 HRs.

This should be a competitive game with two of the top teams in baseball. The San Diego Padres are coming off back to back sweeps so they should be pumped up for this but they're going up against Clayton Kershaw who will make all the difference in this one. I like the Dodgers to win but only to a point, if they're listed at -170 or better I'm taking the Dodgers, if not then the San Diego Padres are the play.
