The San Diego pitching staff has a 5.03 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a .276 opponent batting average this year.

The projected starting pitcher for San Diego is Nick Martinez, who is 0-1 with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over 7.0 innings pitched this season.

San Diego is 19-8 in their last 27 Friday games and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The under is 5-1 in San Diego’s last 6 Friday games. Atlanta is 47-13 in their last 60 game two’s of a series and 44-13 in their last 57 home games. The under is 5-0 in Atlanta’s last 5 game two’s of a series. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Atlanta.
These two teams played a great game on Thursday night, with Atlanta getting the walk-off win in the ninth inning. We should have another exciting matchup in this game, as neither pitcher found much success in their first outings of the year. The over has been a hot bet between these two teams when they play in Atlanta in recent games and I think that trend is going to continue here.
