The San Diego Padres and Minnesota Twins face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Target Field. In the first game of this series it was the Padres that were able to secure the 6-1 victory. 

Padres Betting Preview

The Padres sit with a 19-17 record overall and on Monday it was the pitching that was the difference giving up only a run. Manny Machado had a strong game finishing with two hits and three RBIs. The Padres are averaging 4.194 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.17 runs per game. Manny Machado has hit five home runs and driven in 17 RBIs. On the mound for the Padres will be Seth Lugo who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 3.21. The Padres need a good start from Lugo here. 

Twins Betting Preview

The Twins sit with a 19-17 record overall and the offense has been a major issue for them. On Monday the offense only managed one run and that led to the defeat. The Twins offense is averaging 4.25 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.67 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 3rd. The offense has let them down too often this season. On the mound for the Twins is Pablo Lopez who sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 3.77. In his last start against the White Sox he went seven innings giving up six hits and two runs. 

Padres vs Twins Trends

Padres are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games. Twins are 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Twins are 0-4 in their last 4 interleague games vs. a team with a winning record. Twins are 0-4 in their last 4 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter. Twins are 1-7 in their last 8 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Twins offense struggles, it doesn’t seem to matter what type of pitcher, and that is going to be the case again here. I also expect Pablo Lopez is going to have a strong game and that will be the difference here as this game is lower scoring. Look for only three or four runs total to be scored. Back the under.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
