Two major contenders for the National League pennant collide when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the new-look San Diego Padres in the first game of a three-game series on Friday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The Dodgers (72-33) own the best record in baseball and a 12.5-game lead over the Padres (61-47) in the NL West. This will be the first game between the division rivals since San Diego added Juan Soto, Josh Bell, Josh Hader and Brandon Drury at the trade deadline.
Los Angeles is a -160 favorite in the latest Dodgers vs. Padres odds from Caesars Sportsbook while San Diego is a +135 underdog. First pitch is set for 10:10 p.m. ET. The game is one of 14 on the MLB schedule for Friday. (See up-to-date lines for every game on our MLB odds page.)
