The total runs margin is set at 8 with both ways at -110.
The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers are set to start up a pivotal series at the halfway part of the season. LA leads the NL West by one game over San Diego and gets this four-game series at home to try and extend that lead even further. The Rockies were able to take two of three from the Dodgers in their most recent series while the Padres split a series on the road with the Diamondbacks. Joe Musgrove is getting the ball for the Padres in this one and is coming off his worst outing of the year last time out against the Phillies.
He gave up 6 runs and it was the first time all season that he gave up over 2 runs in an outing so it was definitely n outlier performance. He gives San Diego a significant pitching advantage in this one over Mitch White and the Padres are a great choice for the given odds.
