One would think that moving from a 1.5-run spread to a 2.5-run spread would change a significant amount in terms of how many games that the Padres were able to cover.
In fact, it only bumps that number up by one – the Padres covered only seven of the 19 games on a 2.5 run spread.
In that context, it could be worth taking the Dodgers -2.5 rather than on the run line or the moneyline.
