Runline: Dodgers -1.5 (+125) / Padres +1.5 (+155)
Total: Over/Under 9.5
(LAD) Mookie Betts Over 1.5 Bases -120.
Mookie is on absolute fire at the Plate right now. He's batting .440 ans slugging .800 in his last 7 games. He's gone over 1.5 bases in 4 of his last 5 games too. He starts the day against Rich Hill who has a BA allowed of .272 on the season and .294 in the month of July. He's also a Lefty. Mookie hits .288 and slugs .702 against LHP this year. An OPS of 1.107 which ranks 2nd in baseball. As the Dodgers leadoff man he does see 5 at bats. He's gotten 5 in 2 of his 5 games in August and it would be 3 if he wasn't pulled early as the LAD dismantled the Oakland A's.
(SD) Ha-Seong Kim Over .5 Runs +115.
Like Mookie, Kim is also on fire. He's hitting .440 with an OBP of .548 over his last 7 games. Going back even further he's hitting .420 with a .547 OBP over his last 15. He's getting on base a ton and this Padres offense is averaging 7 runs per game over the past week. He also bats leadoff and has gotten 5 at bats in 5 straight games. He starts the day against Lance Lynn who he's 2 for 3 with a HR against lifetime (1 game last year). Lynn's having the worst season of his career. He has a 6.32 ERA through 22 starts. He just recently joined the Dodgers and makes his 2nd start for them. He allowed 3ER in 7 innings of work at home against the Oakland A's. Which would be considered a good start if it wasn't against the team with the lowest BA and OPS in 2023. The LAD bullpen also ranks in the bottom half for whenever Lynn gets pulled. SD has scored 10 runs of the LAD bullpen in the first two games of this series already.
