LA Angels vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I considered the LA Angels and the plus money, but then I remember the LA Angels are still the LA Angels. Jose Soriano has been sharp this season, but we’re not getting enough bang for our buck. The San Diego Padres need to take advantage of Games like this to chip away in the standings, and Dylan Cease has been good overall this season and even better on the road. Give me the Padres to keep the ball rolling.
