San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Handicapping

Remember the Bill Withers classic – Lean On Me? That song may best describe the relationship between Los Angeles and their starting ace Clayton Kershaw as the Dodgers need a slump buster on the bump tonight.

San Diego – yes the 4-10 Padres, are looking to sweep the Dodgers as they wrap up three game set in SoCal. Game time is slated for 10:10 PM ET on April 17, 2013, from Dodger Stadium, in Los Angeles, California.

Los Angeles: MLB preseson thick chalk is fading fast

Line-up the Dodgers, along with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Angels over in Anaheim, as teams that were preseason chalk but have yet to play like it. Los Angeles has lost four of their past five games and have fallen to fourth place in the National League West. It’s a good thing that no one has taken control in the NL West as the Dodgers are  just 1.5 games out. LHP Clayton Kershaw is one the best pitchers in the Majors and he will boost the Boys in Blue tonight.

MLB Online Betting Odds – Friars look to sweep their Inter-State rivals

A big part of the reason for the Dodgers slump in the standings can be directly attributed to their neighbors down south. San Diego is looking to sweep the Dodgers and move their season series record to 4-2 against Los Angeles. The Padres (4-10) only other win came three games into the season against the New York Mets. A sweep would be shocking – we don’t like the Friars chances.

Relatively silent Dodgers bats recently moves us off the run line in this contest. Instead, we’ll back Los Angeles with the -250 money line at the online wagering website tonight.
