The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres kick off a pivotal series in the NL West Monday night. Yu Darvish will take the mound for San Diego, while Julio Urias gets pitching responsibilities for Los Angeles. Both teams are still chasing the San Francisco Giants for the division lead in late June.

Dodgers vs. Padres, 10:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Moneyline pick: Dodgers (+107)

Darvish is a star, but the Dodgers are the better lineup and Urias is no slouch. He’s got 90 strikeouts in 14 starts and is 9-2 this season. The Padres have a strong lineup, but the Dodgers offer more balance across the board. At + odds, they are the safer pick.

Player Prop: Julio Urias over 4.5 strikeouts (-167)

As mentioned above, Urias is averaging 6.4 strikeouts per game. The Padres fall to the K 8.34 times per game this year. Those numbers bode well for Urias notching at least five strikeouts in this contest.
