Kershaw is searching for his fifth consecutive win, having allowed only one earned run in his past three starts while striking out 24 over 20 innings.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Diego Padres Predictions 5/5/2023


The San Diego Padres are riding high after winning four of their last five games, including a two-game sweep of the Giants in Mexico City and a series victory over the Cincinnati Reds at home.


In their last game, the Padres crushed the Reds 7-1 behind a breakout performance from rookie catcher Brett Sullivan, who hit his first big-league homer and drove in four runs.


The Padres are scoring 4.28 runs per game (19th in the majors) with a .235/.320/.403 slash line, but they have been on fire lately.


In the past week, the Padres have the best OPS in the majors (.328/.413/.572), thanks in part to their offensive explosion in Mexico City. The Padres scored 16 runs on the Giants in the first game of the series.


Joe Musgrove will start for the Padres on Friday, and the former All-Star has had a rough start to the season. He is 1-0 with a 10.80 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 9/1 K/BB ratio in two starts (8.1 IP).


The 30-year-old righty lasted only 3.1 innings in a wild 16-11 win over San Francisco, giving up seven earned runs (three homers) on six hits and a walk.


  • San Diego is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of San Diego’s last 12 games against the LA Dodgers.
  • San Diego is 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres. The MLB Pick for this contest is the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Both teams are on a roll, with the Dodgers on a five-game winning run and the Padres winning four of their last five encounters.


Musgrove had a tough start last time, but he is still a top-notch pitcher with great stuff. The Padres also won all four of Musgrove’s last four starts against a team from the NL West.


They have also won five of their last six games when their opponent scored five or more runs in their previous game. The Dodgers, meanwhile, have lost five of their last six Friday games.


The Padres Chase Kershaw early with a big rally. Prediction: San Diego will win on the money line, 7-6.
