San Diego is 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 15-7 in their last 22 games. The over is 7-1 in San Diego’s last 8 road games. Atlanta is 5-1 in their last 6 Friday games and 2-8 in their last 10 games following a win. The over is 4-1-1 in Atlanta’s last 6 games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Yu Darvish started the season poorly, but has put together four straight quality starts. Max Fried has been very good all season and has also has four straight quality starts. I like the under in this game, but I like the value the Padres have on the road behind Darvish more.
