Starting pitchers

Blake Snell vs. Ryan Pepiot

Snell will make his 30th start of the season on Wednesday. He has won three consecutive games and has greatly turned around his season to become one of the best pitchers for the Padres. This will be the fourth time he has faced Los Angeles this season. So far, Snell has allowed seven earned runs on nine hits over 15 innings against the Dodgers.

Pepiot will take the mound for the fifth time this season, making his third start. He was dominant when he took on the Miami Marlins his last time out. Pepiot threw seven scoreless innings and allowed just one hit while striking out three.

Over/Under pick

Each game of this series has had at least 13 runs scored. The batting orders are taking turns in their production, but Los Angeles has scored at least six runs in six straight games. The Padres put up 11 runs in the series’ first game, but only mustered two on Tuesday. Even with a scary-looking pitching matchup, I’m siding with the lineups and taking the over.

Pick: Over 8

Moneyline pick

Snell is a tough matchup for the Dodgers, but they are really tough to slow down. Even when they lost on Monday they still scored eight runs. If Los Angeles can get to Snell early, they should take the win off another strong start from Pepiot.

Pick: Dodgers
