Point Spread: 1.50 | -145.00 San Diego (Home)
The Friars defeated the Dodgers 7-2 on Monday to move just 1 1/2 games back of the National League West leaders. I like the value we get on the Padres to keep it close and perhaps even edge out an outright win tonight.
Dodgers right-hander Tony Gonsolin (0-1, 1.57 ERA) has cooled off since a hot start to the season. The Dodgers have lost each of his last two starts 5-2 with Gonsolin allowing five runs (four earned) on nine hits over 11 innings of work. San Diego counters with Zach Davies (7-2, 2.48 ERA) who has held opponents to 12 runs (eight earned) over 32 2/3 innings through a five-game winning streak.
Davies owns a 3-2 career record with a 2.08 ERA against the Dodgers, and I like him to keep the Padres well in this game.
8* play on San Diego Padres -1.5.
