Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers have been playing very well as of late and I look for that to continue. I feel that the Padres will remain in freefall.
Los Angeles is the better team and I feel they will be too much for the Padres to handle. I have no confidence backing the Friars in this one.
I think that Scherzer will keep up his good pitching and the Dodgers will hit around whoever starts for the Padres.
I will go with the Dodgers on the moneyline.
