Atlanta is 7-0 in their 7 Saturday games and the under is 5-0 in Atlanta’s last 5 Saturday games.

Atlanta is 7-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in San Diego.
Ian Anderson got roughed up in his first start of the season and will look to bounce back against a strong San Diego offense. Nick Martinez looked solid in his first start this season against the Giants and will have more confidence in this game. I am taking the Padres at home.
