Dodgers -125 Road Favorites in Game Three
Welcome to the MLB Divisional series where there have been a lot of recent rumblings about whether or not the San Diego Padres are a rival of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the way the San Francisco Giants have been since moving across the country together in 1958. The sentiment is the same, you actually have to win a little in order for this to be called a real rivalry!
Since 1998, Los Angeles has won 177 of 276 total games (64.13%). The Padres haven’t won five or straight games against the Boys in Blue since September of 2010. By comparison, Los Angeles has streaks of five or more nine times in that span. Even with the series moving, Dave Robert’s team knows they’ve owned the Padres down south as well, winning 68 of their last 105 meetings (64.76%, +1410 units).
Tony Gonsolin gets the ball for LA. The right-hander was an incredible 16-1 this season, with his All-Star outing being the worst of the season. When betting there is one factor that should give you some pause and that’s the fact that Gonsolin has not made a start since August 23rd. In fact, the California native hasn’t made a road start for almost two months. Let’s continue our Dodgers vs Padres series odds preview.
Game Two a Step in The Right Direction
In the last 53 years, only 10 times has a team lost the first two games of a best-of-five series and then come back to win. To say the Padres were in a must-win situation in game two would be putting it mildly. A victory doesn’t erase a yearly beat down by Los Angeles but bettors know that baseball betting is a game of streaks and this could be the start of a run that might finally propel the Padres past their division nemesis.
Bettors are tempted by the plus number with the home team, despite what history tells them. The reason is, everyone knows that each game needs to be treated as a separate entity. Numbers only tell you where you’ve been, not where you’re going. The Friars have former Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell on the mound, who has not been impressive in 2022 but has pitched in big games in his career and did win three of his last four starts.
Bettors Slamming Money Down On Padres
You can never truly figure out the betting public. We would have guaranteed that the majority of wagers would be on the Dodgers, as it had been for most of the year. With early money coming in fast on the Padres’, books were surprisingly forced to move the number in San Diego’s direction.
We get the feeling that the oddsmakers may be setting a trap that neither the Joes nor the Pros are falling for.To conclude our Dodgers vs Padres series odds preview; our official recommendation is to follow the lead of the public and take the Padres along with the over (7, -120).
