Score: 2 - 8
Point Spread: -1½/+109 LA Dodgers
The Dodgers are the much better team and will have the much better starter, Kershaw (9-2, 2.85 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) in game 1. He's been very good this year despite not having his best season and has only allowed a total of 3 runs through 18 innings in his last 3 starts since the all-star break. The Padres will counter Lucchesi (7-5, 4.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) who's been pretty solid for them but has a few more bad starts than Kershaw does. Let's go with the Dodgers on the run line in the series opener.
