San Diego is 5-10 in their last 15 games and 0-7 in their last 7 game two’s of a series. The under is 8-1-1 in San Diego’s last 10 game two’s of a series. New York is 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games and 5-0 in their last 5 interleague games. The over is 9-2 in New York’s last 11 home games. The under is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


The Padres come into this game playing very well in recent games, but they are still below .500 and fourth in the NL West. San Diego is starting Michael Wacha, who has allowed one earned run in his last four starts (25 IP). New York is starting Luis Severino, who has only made one start so far this year, but he did pitch well against Cincinnati. I like the Padres in this matchup, especially with how well Wacha has pitched in recent starts.
