Dodgers vs Padres Betting Prediction and Analysis for 10/14/2022
Last Wednesday, the Dodgers lost to the Padres 5-3 to tie the series despite having the home advantage. During the game, the Dodgers got 11 hits in the loss including solo home runs by Freddie Freeman. This time around, the Dodgers are travelling to Petco Park in San Diego for a tie breaking game. For this matchup, the home advantage will not make too much of a difference as it is only a 2-hour drive.
However, Game 2 of this series was not Clayton Kershaw’s best performance. This is because he went 5.0 inning while giving up 6 hits and 3 runs. According to baseball betting news, Tony Gonsolin (16-1, 2.14 ERA) will be the starting pitcher.
After two games in the postseason, Max Muncy is batting .429 to lead Los Angeles. In addition, Trea Turner has hit a team high two home runs. Together, Muncy and Turner are the leaders in RBIs with two each. Freddie Freeman is the leader in on-base percentage at .444 and Muncy is the leader in hits with three.
As o the San Diego Padres, this will be their first time hosting a playoff game in 16 years. While many baseball handicappers expect the Dodgers to win the series, the Padres are not going down without a fight.
During last Wednesday’s victory over the Dodgers, the Padres offense had 9 hits and 5 run. While they did win the game, starting pitcher Yu Darvish was not at his best. This is because he gave up seven hits and three runs. However, the team came thru keeping the Dodgers to 4 hits and zero runs in the 4.0 inning of work.
Foer this matchup, lefthander, Blake Snell (8-10, 3.38 ERA) will be the starting pitcher.
