Padres vs. Dodgers Game 1 moneyline odds
The Padres’ upset of the Mets was one of the top stories of the Wild Card Round. But since they had to go to a Game 3 in order to win that series, they are forced to start Clevinger in Game 1 here. The righty has pitched to a below-average 86 ERA+ over 114.1 innings this year and posted a hideous 9.69 ERA over 13 frames versus the Dodgers during the regular season. On the other hand, Urias leads the NL with a 2.16 ERA and allowed just four earned runs over 24 innings to the Padres this year. The Dodgers won each of his four starts versus San Diego. The Padres are obviously carrying some momentum into this series, but that lopsided pitching matchup and the Dodgers’ league-best offense make it easy to side with the favored home team here.
