Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres Online Betting Odds
Los Angeles Dodgers: NL West favorites starting to roll
After a tough season opening series that saw them drop two of three games to the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers have won four of their their last five contests. Los Angeles appeared taken by surprise during a 9-3 loss to the Padres on Tuesday and then squeaked out a 4-3 win last night. RHP Zack Greinke gets the call and was stellar in his Dodgers debut as he blanked the Pirates over 6 1/3 innings, giving up just two hits, no walks, and struck out six batters a 3-0 Dodgers win. Greinke is an ace that we'll be riding a lot this season.
San Diego Padres: Another long losing season looms large for the Friar's
One has to feel for the fans of the San Diego Padres as the 2013 MLB season is shaping up like many have in the past. The Friars have a 147-177 record over the past two seasons and just one winning year in their last five seasons. San Diego has scored just 26 runs in eight games (nine on Tuesday) and they've managed just 62 hits in 264 at bats - the third lowest total in the Majors. RHP Jason Marquis starts for the Padres and is 6-4 versus the Dodgers with a sparkling 2.53 ERA and 53 strikeouts against his neighbors to the north.
