San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Monday Free Pick: There is only one late game on the West Coast with which to make your Monday MLB picks, and we are going to key in on this one tonight. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres have plenty of bad blood boiling between them, and these two are going to end up duking it out, perhaps literally, in MLB betting action for the second time in the last week starting on Monday. The first pitch comes at 10:10 p.m. ET in a duel in which LA is favored by a -180 margin.

Don’t be all that shocked if this game is going to start with a Padre standing on first base. There is no doubt that Chad Billingsley is going to be asked to get a bit of retribution for the broken collarbone suffered by Zack Greinke last week in the brawl that these two teams had. As a result, Billingsley might ultimately be tossed from this game, as might Eric Stults. It might be for these Padres to get away from home, knowing that they were beaten in their last five games at Petco Park. The offense is struggling without Carlos Quentin, who is serving his suspension, but we think that this San Diego team is clearly the right side to play. The Pads are getting a heck of a lot of plus odds in this one, and they’ll be the right side on Monday, and likely in all three games in this series. Padres vs. Dodgers Free Pick for April 15th: Back the San Diego Padres +172
