Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides a look at MLB Overnight Betting Lines for the games taking place on Friday, July 8. He takes a special look into the Padres and Dodgers Clash.

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
The San Diego Padres are on a 7-1 run to the Over in their last 8 games and have been pounding the baseball during that span scoring 48 runs during those last 8 games but the majority of damage this recently surging Padres lineup has done all season long has come against lefties. San Diego has some of the best numbers in baseball offensively against southpaws and should be very familiar with LA Dodgers lefty Scott Kazmir whom they are facing for the 3rd time this season.

The Padres had good success against Kazmir when last facing him back in May scoring 5 runs in 5.2 innings against him. Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, Yangervis Solarte, Melvin Upton Jr. and Derek Norris have all been very strong at the plate in recent weeks for this team and they should be able to score some runs here in this game against Kazmir who has been very inconsistent throughout the season.

Andrew Cashner will get the nod for San Diego and he has endured another mediocre season and has struggled more so on the road entering this game with a 5.31 ERA in 5 road starts this season with the Over going 3-1-1 in those games.

It's worth noting San Diego's bullpen has had to work extensively in recent games due to their starters not pitching deep so the door should be open for late runs against them but also for the LA Dodgers bullpen which has also been taxed and had to play a marathon game in the finale of their series against Baltimore and there could be some carryover in terms of pen vulnerability into this series. The MLB Odds for this game provide some interesting lines, but as for my MLB Pick, I'll look to ride the Padres Over streak one more time here.
