Every time my lawn gets watered about 80% of the water goes to one side in
the middle and is always water log while the rest of my lawn is dry and
dieing. Is there anything I can throw into the low spots like dirt or
something to level the lawn out?
There could be other causes of this, rather than a low spot. Perhaps
your soil that gets water logged is compacted or even clayey, while the
area that is dry and dying lacks structure to hold the water, as many
sandy soils won't hold water.
Assuming that a low spot is the problem, you can certainly rake in some
top soil to raise the level, but if you do too much at one time, you
will kill the grass. It would be better to lay down a quarter inch of
topsoil perhaps twice each year for 4 years than to lay down 2 inches
all at once.

You could take off the top layer of sod, fill underneath with compost
almost to the level of the regular lawn and then reposition the sod..
That way you have it up to level all at once instead of building it up
slowly with top dressing..
