San Diego Padres vs Los Angeles Dodgers 5/14/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The San Diego Padres will go against the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Dodger Stadium, CA, on Sunday, May 14, 2023, at 4:10 PM ET.


The Padres went to bed on Friday night having lost five of their previous six games, three of which came against the Dodgers.


They have a clear potential to catch up with the NL West, but they are instead losing ground. A lackluster stretch of baseball in San Diego is being defined, as it has during most of the 2023 season, by a lifeless offense.


Even Fernando Tatis Jr.’s return and successful start did not lead to a change of heart. The Padres’ 2.83 runs per game average over the aforementioned six games ranks them 25th in runs scored per game.


The team’s batting average is 25th and its strikeout rate is 21st. However, San Diego has the second-best walk rate in the league and a team full of excellent hitters.


Additionally, they are succeeding in 24 out of 30 tries to steal bases or 80%. 


The Padres will need to keep relying on their 13th-ranked pitching staff until then. In the series finale, Ryan Weathers will start and carry a 2.50 ERA with him.


His most recent two appearances were both clean 1.0-inning efforts from the bullpen. Weathers made three starts this year and gave up five runs in 16.0 innings.


Weathers did not face the Dodgers this year, but in four outings (three starts), he has a career ERA versus them of 3.95.


San Diego’s bullpen was not outstanding (4.57 FIP, 22nd) outside of Josh Hader, so they’ll be counting heavily on Weathers to perform well.


  • The total went UNDER in 9 of San Diego’s last 10 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches against LA Dodgers.

San Diego Padres vs Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions 5/14/2023


After winning on Friday night, the Dodgers were 11-2 in their previous 13 games. Los Angeles’ bats were the focus, as seen by the Dodgers’ fourth-place finishes in runs per game and slugging percentage.


Max Muncy leads the team with 12 home runs, and they have the second-highest number of walks in MLB.


The team’s 26th-hitting average and 22nd strikeout rate indicate that contact is a problem, but they are currently resolving it. The Dodgers are the team scoring the most runs per game this month.


This squad’s current position of 14th is disheartening because the Dodgers team from last season was the league leader in ERA. When Tony Gonsolin returns from injury, that figure ought to go down.


Gonsolin was selected to his first All-Star game after finishing 2022 with a 16-1 record, 2.14 ERA, and 0.875 WHIP. He made three starts this season and pitched 14.0 innings while giving up six runs, three of them earned.


His lone home start, where he allowed three runs in 4.2 innings, was the weakest of the bunch. However, with each start, he pitches further into the game and seems to be just as effective as he was in 2022. 


  • The total went UNDER in 6 of the LA Dodgers’ last 8 matches.
  • The LA Dodgers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the LA Dodgers’ last 5 matches against San Diego.

San Diego Padres vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Right now, it’s challenging to avoid betting on the Dodgers, both to win and to win games by a large margin.


They’re currently hitting and pitching well, and they’re beginning to resemble the league’s best club, as many people projected.


The Padres already suffered numerous setbacks, and given the state of their bats at the moment, they should find it difficult to mount any offense against Tony Gonsolin. The Dodgers will win 6-4.
