NLDS Game Two Betting Preview for San Diego Padres vs LA Dodgers Series

San Diego is a Baseball Town

San Diego has really fallen in love with their Padres as of late. California is a Dodgers state, but San Diego is a baseball town, and they will travel in large numbers North to watch their beloved team.

The Padres were the only Wild Card team that needed to play three games, so they are already at a major disadvantage. It does not seem like it, but it has already been five days since game one of the Wild Card, so Yu Darvish should be ready to roll. He pitched a gem against the New York Mets, earning the win. Darvish has a 2.52 ERA against LA in four starts during the regular season.  

During the regular season, the Padres were 73-89 against the spread, but 44-36 on the road. A lot of their games were close, but they love playing on the road. In their three playoff games, they covered the spread twice and hit the over twice. 

The Past Does Not Matter

Winning came easy to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who dominated MLB all year long, stringing together 111 wins. The thing is, none of that matters anymore, as if they lose this series, their season is over, and nobody will remember those 111 wins. 

Los Angeles has the best OPS in baseball, along with the most runs per game, but they are far from a one-sided team. The Dodgers also have the best ERA and WHIP in MLB. Opponents hit just .209 against their pitching staff. 

The Dodgers are almost automatic when it comes to covering the spread at 97-65, which was the best record by an NL team. They were 50-27 against teams over .500 and had a 57-24 record on the moneyline at Dodger Stadium.

After already playing three important games in the Wild Card series, the Padres seem to already be in midseason form. They have the pieces to pull off an upset, but consistency has been an issue ever since the trade deadline. 

The Dodgers have covered the spread with ease all year long, but Yu Darvish has silenced the LA bats in 2022. This may be one of the very few times you should stay away from the spread, as game two is shaping up to be a pitcher’s duel for the ages.
