3 units on Los Angeles -116 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The only thing holding this moneyline down is Jake Peavy. It certainly isn't the way the Padres are hitting and winning as they are close to 100 losses on the season, and have been out-scored 22-5 in the first two games here. The fact is that Peavy has been poor on the road with a sub-par 4.20 ERA, so not even close to the same pitcher, and the Padres have been no better off with him on the mound anyway as they are 8-15 in his last 23 starts. The Dodgers are hot and 18-5 in their last 23, so I'll back them here.
