Betting preview for Dodgers-Padres NLDS

By Derek Carty  ( 


On Tuesday, two perceived juggernauts square off in one half of the National League Division Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres led the NL with the most wins in 2020, and while the Dodgers are favored, the talent level of these teams may not actually be as close as the lines indicate.


The Dodgers have the best offense in baseball, and it’s not even close.  That includes the Padres, whose raw 2020 stats were boosted by overachievements from Wil Myers, Jake Cronenworth, Eric Hosmer and even Fernando Tatis Jr.  As good as this offense is, the 2020 regular season was just 60 games long, so it’s important not to put undue emphasis on the raw 2020 stats given the nature of variance in baseball.
