Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres Prediction

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a chance to make history this season. They could ultimately win the most games in MLB regular season history.

So although the Dodgers have the NL West pretty much locked up, there's more to go after.

Julio Urias will take the mound for the Dodgers tonight. The lefty is 14-7 with a 2.32 ERA on the season. In the last 30 days, Urias has a 3.78 xFIP and has struck out 29.3% of batters while only walking 6%.

He's kept his line drive rate down and hasn't allowed many extra-base hits either.

The Padres, meanwhile, are only hitting a .130 ISO against lefties. Only Wil Myers has had real success against lefties in the last 30 days. Juan Soto has hit a .182 ISO with a wOBA of .337 in the last 30 days against lefties, so that's something to at least point out.

San Diego, on the other hand, will pitch Sean Manaea. Manaea is another lefty who is 7-7 with a 4.90 ERA on the season.

Manaea has a 4.54 xFIP and has not been getting many ground balls in the last 30 days. On top of that, Manaea has allowed 21.3% of line drives and has been rocked by righties.

Righties are hitting a .397 wOBA and ISO of .230 in the last 30 days against Manaea, and the Dodgers figure to have eight righties in their lineup.

Not only are the Dodgers hitting a .157 ISO and wOBA of .343 against lefties, but they're also hitting 26.4% of line drives against lefties with their projected lineup in the last 30 days. On top of that, the Dodgers have hit just 34.2% of ground balls.

The Dodgers have had San Diego's number all season long. That won't stop today. I'll take the Dodgers -1.5 in this one.
