On the other side of this matchup is the Atlanta Braves who sit with a 16-18 record overall but they have won two of their three games heading into this one. The offense hasn’t been as good as the Padres, but in the two wins, the pitching has been good. The pitching overall is giving up 4.5 runs per game which is 23rd in the baseball. 

On the mound for the Padres is Joe Musgrove who sits with a 4-0 record and an ERA of 2.08. In his last start against the Marlins he went seven innings giving up five hits and two runs.

On the mound for the Braves will be Kyle Wright who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 2.03. In his last start against the Red Sox he went 4.2 innings giving up seven hits and six runs. 

The Padres are 7-0 in Musgrove’s last seven starts. The Braves are 1-5 in their last six games on Sunday. The over is 3-0-1 in the Braves last four games. The over is 10-1 in the Padres last 11 road games against a team with a losing record. 

The Padres have won the last seven starts by Musgrove, and he is going to find success again here. Wright has a low ERA but has two losses and that has been because of a lack of run support. Back the Padres on the money line.
