Atlanta is 7-0 in their 7 Saturday games and the under is 5-0 in Atlanta’s last 5 Saturday games. San Diego is 1-5 in their last 6 games with a total between 7-8.5 and the over is 6-1 in San Diego’s last 7 game 3’s of a series. 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.
