San Diego is 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 6-2 in their last 8 road games. The over is 4-1 in San Diego’s last 5 Thursday games. Cincinnati is 7-2 in their last 9 Thursday games and 17-37 in their last 54 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Cincinnati’s last 4 Thursday games. San Diego is 11-1 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings

The Reds cannot be trusted right now and are the worst team in the MLB. San Diego has dominated Cincinnati in their last 12 matchups and there is no reason to think it won’t continue here. Neither pitcher has been very sharp, so the over may be worth a look as well, but I am going with Padres ML here.
