After the Dodgers took game 1 of the series 3-0 on Friday night, Los Angeles is set to square off for game 2 of the series against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Julio Urias went seven innings and allowed three hits on Friday. The Padres only had six hits on the night.

The Padres and Reds have the same record, but San Diego has moved ahead of Cincinnati and is in the 2nd NL Wild Card spot as it stands right now.

The Dodgers have a 14 game lead over the Padres for the top NL Wild Card spot. They are also only 2.5 games behind the Giants for the NL West lead.

The NL West and NL Wild Card look like they will both come down to the wire. It’s sure to be an exciting September across the league.

The Dodgers are favored by 1.5 on the run line, according to BetUS. The game run total is set at 8. The Padres are at +180 on the money line. For more odds and MLB bets to make, head over to Bovada for the latest odds and action.

San Diego Padres Preview

It is a terrible time for the Padres to go 5-5 in their last ten games. If they want to stay in the Wild Card race with the Reds, they have to clean that up. They are putting Chris Paddack on the mound Saturday to try and get them back on track.

Paddack hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in his last four starts after a tough start to the season. July 16th against the Nats was the last time he gave up more. He’s 7-6 with a 4.95 ERA on the season.

Fernando Tatis Jr. may very well win the NL MVP this season as he’s been red-hot all year. Tatis heads into the weekend with 37 home runs and 86 RBIs.

He has produced 5.9 bWAR on the season. He currently has the top betting odds to win the NL MVP at -200, according to BetOnline.

Los Angeles Dodgers Preview

The Dodgers plan on putting the possible 2021 Cy Young award winner on the mound on Saturday. Walker Buehler mans the bump for LA. Buehler had a stretch of 11 quality starts in a row until his last outing. The Giants beat him up to the tune of 7 runs in 3 innings in his previous start.

Buehler is 13-3 on the season and has produced 5.6 WAR for pitchers on the season. He is easily the favorite to win the NL Cy Young award in 2021.

Offensively, the Dodgers have gotten th3e job done all season without the help of superstar Cody Bellinger. Bellinger’s year has been peppered with injuries and subpar performance at the plate. Fortunately for LA, the addition of Trea Turner at the deadline has solidified their offense.

Dodgers Roll

It is highly doubtful that Walker Buehler makes it two bad stats in a row. His last start was easily his worst of the season. It was the first time he’s allowed more than five earned all year.

The Dodgers have been locked in at home this season with a record of 89-53, second to only the Giants. We expect them to make it to 90 wins on Saturday. Take the Dodgers on the run line and get -110 odds. They win and cover on their home turf.
