The San Diego Padres will play the Cleveland Guardians in Game 1 of their series at Progressive Field on Tuesday night.

The San Diego Padres are 15-8 this season and have won five of their last six games. San Diego is coming off of a series win against Pittsburgh, where they won two of the three games. The San Diego pitching staff has a 3.51 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a .215 opponent batting average this season. The Padres offense has scored 109 runs with a .234 batting average and a .326 on base percentage. Manny Machado is batting .375 with four home runs and 16 RBI’s for the Padres this season. The projected starter for San Diego is Mike Clevinger, who is making his first appearance of the season.

The Cleveland Guardians are 10-12 this season and have won three games in a row. Cleveland is coming off of a series sweep against the Athletics, where they won all three games.

San Diego is 8-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 games. The over is 6-1 in San Diego’s last 7 games. Cleveland is 3-7 in their last 10 games and 2-6 in their last 8 interleague games. The over is 7-3 in Cleveland’s last 10 interleague games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

The Padres have had plenty of success to start this season but will be on the road in this matchup and have a starting pitcher making his first appearance of the year. Cleveland is coming off of a great series against Oakland and has been carried by Jose Ramirez. I like the over in this matchup, as I don’t expect Clevinger to last long.
