Starting pitchers

Joe Musgrove vs. Julio Urias

Urias lost a bit of control at the tail end of April, allowing five and six runs in back-to-back games, but returned to form against the Philadelphia Phillies in his first start of May. He allowed just one hit and one run over seven innings pitched while striking out a whopping 10 batters.

Musgrove has started just two games this season after an injury delayed his start, allowing three runs in the first and giving up seven earned runs to the Giants over just 3.1 innings in his latest outing. (Although it’s hard to hold that one against him considering the run environment in Mexico City.) The righty has struck out nine batters in two appearances on the mound while allowing 13 hits.

Over/Under pick

Musgrove started the season on the IL and is clearly still settling in this year. He is right-handed, and the Dodgers have been crushing it against righties. With the Padres’ firepower going up against Urias, too, we can expect a high-scoring afternoon.

Pick: Over 8.5

Moneyline pick

Urias has been fairly consistent this season and will have plenty of offense to back him up on the mound. I think the Dodgers take this series home with a win here.

Pick: Dodgers
