Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Diego Padres: prediction for the MLB game
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers had a long road trip, where they demonstrated solid performance. In the first four games, they recorded confident victories, but then dipped in form. For instance, when the Dodgers visited the Colorado Rockies, they lost two out of three games (0:4, 4:7), and only managed to get a win the the last game (8:4). They will hope to build on that success in the home series against San Diego.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have looked disappointing of late. They played three games against the Philadelphia Phillies and recorded only one victory (1:0, 2:4, 5:8). After that, the Padres travelled to Arizona, where they split the games with the Diamondbacks (6:7, 4:0). With such poor preformance against the outsiders, the Padres will struggle to put up a fight against the Dodgers.
In 4 out of 6 head-to-head games, the teams scored over 9.5 runs.
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the Los Angeles Dodgers went unbeaten in the first inning.
The Dodgers are back at their home arena, where they will try to redeem themselves for their recent failures. The hosts have problems with the lineup, but they remain the leaders of the National League, seemingly unaffected by that. We will be backing the favorites in this match.
