Pick: AtlantaFOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Rockies' (55-78) David Pomeranz (1-8, 5.13 ERA) is set to square off against the Braves' (76-59) Tommy Hanson (12-7, 4.45 ERA) on the mound this evening.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Pomeranz gave up six runs off six hits over four frames in his team's 10-9 setback to the Dodgers on Wednesday; it was the fifth time in his last six starts that the beleaguered southpaw has been unable to make it into the fifth frame. He's now 0-5 with a deplorable 7.04 ERA over his last nine starts. Note that he's been particularly ineffective on the road this season, going 1-3 with a pedestrian 5.34 ERA thus far.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Hanson is coming off an outing to forget in which he gave up four runs off eight hits with two walks while striking out three over five frames of work in his team's eventual 8-2 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. Hanson has hit a sluggish patch, but confirms that he's 100% and ready to go; he has a big opportunity to turn things around vs. the Rockies, and improve upon his 4-3, 4.81 ERA home record.FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
To say this has been a lop-sided season series would be an understatement, as the Braves are already 4-0 this season, and have won six straight vs. Colorado in front of the home town crowd.FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Atlanta rolled to a fairly easy 6-1 victory in yesterday's series opener, and I expect another lop-sided affair today.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
You'll want to keep your eyes on the Braves' Martin Prado who is hitting .328 over his last 14 games.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Expect Hanson to out-duel his "gas can" counterpart, and for the home side to take advantage of this situation; you may want to consider laying the 1.5 runs for the plus money pay out, in what will prove to be a blowout!

New York Mets vs St. Louis Cardinals
Pick: New York MetsFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Cardinals have never faced Mets 23-yeard old righty Matt Harvey before, and he's throwing well with a 2.76 ERA for the season and a 1.80 ERA and 2-0 record his last three starts. For the season he's fanned 49 in 42 innings and allowed just 30 hits. Harvey turned in his third straight quality start in Wednesday's outing against the Phillies. He allowed two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in the 3-2 win. Harvey has been quality in five of the seven starts to begin his career with a 49-to-17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 42 1/3 innings pitched. The Mets are playing well, 10-4 in their last 14 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. The Cardinals are 1-4 in Jamie Garcia's last 5 home starts and in his last three starts overall he's 0-2 with a 4.66 ERA. The Mets are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings, so grab the visitors. Play the NY Mets!

Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox    
Play: Chicago White SoxFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Free plays on a 25-10 run tonight we note that Certain home favorites off a home favored win by 2 or more runs at -140 or higher are 14-4 if they scored 4 or less runs and had 10 or more hits and 5 or more men left on base, vs an opponent off a +140 or higher 2 or more run road dog loss in a game where they scored 2 or less runs on 5 or more hits with 5 or more men left on base. System is some what long winded but effective none the less. Chicago has won 16 of 19 at home when the total is 9 to 9.5. Minnesota has lost 22 of the last 31 vs winning teams. Diamond for the Twins has lost 3 of 4 vs Chicago with a 5.06 era in his last 3 starts. Quintana has won 5 of 7 at home this year. Look for Chicago to get the win tonight.

Baltimore vs. TorontoFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Pick: UnderFOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Baltimore Orioles (75-59) will send left hander Zach Britton to the mound on Tuesday night when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays (60-74). Britton is 4-1 on the year with a 4.80 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP. He has been locked in lately with 3 straight wins and an awesome ERA of 1.25. He has 4 quality starts in 8 starts this season including the last 3 straight games. He has never pitched in Toronto. The "Under" has cashed in 2 of his last 3 starts.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Toronto will counter with right hander Carlos Villenueva on Tuesday night. Villanueva is 7-4 on the season with an excellent ERA of 3.10 and a WHIP of 1.20. The "Under" has cashed 4 of his last 5 starts and 4 of his last 5 home starts.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Britton and Villanueva faced off on August 24th in Baltimore with Britton and the Orioles winning 6-4, cashing the "Over".
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
In 12 games between these two this season, the "Under" cashed in 6 games. Baltimore has been red hot, winning 8 of their last 10 overall while climbing to within 1 game of the division leading New York Yankees in the race for the NL East. They have been winning with pitching as the "Under" has cashed in 6 of their last 8 games.
After hovering around the .500 mark for most of the season the Blue Jays have really started to slide. They are 6-14 in their last 20 games with the "Under" cashing 11-8-1.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Britton is on fire right now while Villanueva has been the Jays best starter in the past 2 months with 7 quality starts in his last 10 games. The Jays offense isn't the same with slugger Jose Bautista out of the lineup. Look for a pitching duel in this game and take the "Under" to win!

Boston vs. Seattle
Pick: OverFOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The struggling Red Sox lost again last night in Seattle, it was their seventh straight loss on this West Coast road trip. The Mariners meanwhile have now won 17 of their last 20 games at Safeco, and they will look to keep the ball rolling tonight.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Blake Beavan will get the call for Seattle, coming off a win his last time out. Beavan (9-8, 4.95 ERA) allowed a pair of run on five hits over seven innings in a 5-4 win over the Twins in his last start. He went five innings allowing just one run on seven hits, in a 5-1 win over Minnesota in his last start here at Safeco. The 23 year old has been inconsistent all year, and he has struggled a little with his command walking five in his last two starts.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Boston will send John Lester to the mound tonight, coming off a loss in his last outing. Lester (8-11, 5.01 ERA) allowed five runs on nine hits, while walking three over eight innings in a 5-2 loss to the Angels in his last start.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Lester is 1-2 with a 4.22 ERA in his last three starts at Safeco, and he has allowed three home runs in those contests. Michael Saunders has feasted on Lester, going 3 for 6 with a home run against the left-hander. Brendan Ryan and Jesus Montero have both hit .333 versus Lester in their respective careers.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is 3 for 5 in his career versus Blake Beavan.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
I don't expect these two starters to have banner nights in this contest, we could see a few runs scored.

Houston Astros at Pittsburgh Pirates
Prediction: Pittsburgh Pirates -1.5
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Houston has won two of their last three games, but I'm not "buying." The Astros have won just 10 of 60 games since June 28. We have gone against them several times on the run line, citing that the overwhelming majority of their losses have come by more than one run. Pittsburgh has been struggling, no doubt about it. But I believe the Bucs are getting "just what the doctor ordered" on Tuesday when they step-in against Jordan Lyles. The Astro righty has been rocked just about every way a pitcher can be. He's been tagged badly on the road and has an 8.04 ERA in three career starts against Pittsburgh. Houston has lost nine of Lyles' ten road starts in 2012, with the last six losses coming by a combined score of 56-13, an average margin of more than 7 rpg. Meanwhile, the Bucs will start former Astro Wandy Rodriguez, who has pitched well in his last two starts. Rodriguez' ex-mates average just 2.61 rpg in road games against southpaws. I expect a wide margin Pittsburgh win and I'm recommending a run line play on the Pirates.

The Baltimore Orioles take on the Blue Jays in Toronto in Game Two of this three game series. Baltimore has been very good this year and sit only one game behind the NY Yankees for the AL East Division lead. Baltimore is scoring only 3.9 runs per game on the road this year. Baltimore is allowing 6 runs per game on turf this year where opponents are hitting a combined .300. Zach Britton has a 5.03 ERA on the road this season. Carlos Villaneuva is 7-4 with a 3.10 ERA overall this year, 5-4 with a 3.03 ERA in all starts this season and 4-1 with a 1.74 ERA at home this year. Toronto is 19-5 at home vs Baltimore the past 3 years. Baltimore is 1-5 last 6 games on the road when Britton starts against a team with a losing record. Toronto is 6-0 last 6 games when Villanaueva starts as a home favorite and 7-1 last 8 games when he starts at home overall. Baltimore is 14-44 last 58 meetings in Toronto. Toronto would like nothing better to play the role of a spoiler and they do that here tonight. We'll recommend a small play on Toronto tonight!

We have the Arizona D-Backs (66-70 & 33-36 road) visiting the San Francisco Giants (77-58 & 38-28 home) in a NL West game. Giants lead the West by "5" games, while the D-Backs sit in third 11.5 games out and trying to get to .500. Zona sends out Ian Kennedy (12-11, 4.27 ERA & 1.32 WHIP), and he is up to "12" wins but hasn't been anywhere near as sharp as he was last season. In his last "5" starts he has gone 27.2 innings, allowed "15" runs, and walked "16" batters. Truly walks and home runs have been his bugaboo, as he gave up "7" dingers over that "27" innings! In fact in his last "6" starts he has allowed "17" walks and "11" homers! He faces Ryan Vogelsong (12-7, 3.02 ERA & 1.19 WHIP) who has went 3-2 in his last "5" games, and after two duds in mid August he followed that with two wins, and a solid "13 innings and only allowing "7" runs in his last two starts. G-Men are really tough at home, and only allow 3.3 r/g, while Arizona score a half run less on the road. Finally SFG is 47-44 vs. RHP while the D-Backs are 40-46 against the same.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Fading someone (Jackson) who threw 123 pitches the last game (unless of course it's someone that does that routinely) is something I'll do more often than not. The Nationals haven't seen Rusin. Morse is questionable. The Nationals may well be in "semi" shutdown mode, and their bullpen hasn't been up to snuff lately. Washington committed a couple of errors last night (cyclical, usually) and both Storen and Clippard pitched last night.

Pick: San FranciscoFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This is a great price for the Giants which have won six of their last seven games and have taken a solid 4.5-game lead over the Dodgers in the National League West. San Francisco is now 10 games over .500 at with the series opening victory last night and the victory snapped a two-game skid on its home turf. The Giants are 21-7 in their last 28 games as home favorites between -110 and -150. they hope to get Ryan Vogelsong turned around as he has been a quality start dominator but three of his last four start have been of the non-quality version. Two of those came on the road however and he has been great at home with the exception of just one start as 12 of his 13 home outings have resulted in quality performances. Arizona meanwhile has been on a rough slide as it has dropped nine of its last 11 games to fall four games under .500 on the season. The Diamondbacks have lost their last three games on this roadtrip and despite scoring eight runs on Monday, the offense has been the culprit. They are hitting only .226 over their last 10 games while scoring four runs or less nine times. Ian Kennedy has been hit or miss this season as he has a 4.27 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with Arizona going just 13-14 in his 27 starts. He has been a better pitcher on the road but the offense behind him has held him down as Arizona is 7-9 in his 16 road starts and averaging only 3.4 rpg in those starts. The Diamondbacks are 3-8 in Kennedy's last 11 road starts against teams with a winning record.

There's no question the A's are playing some incredible baseball right now. Oakland has won 15 of their last 18 overall. At the same time, Los Angeles is playing pretty good baseball of their own. The Angels are 10-3 over their last 13, including an 8-3 win on Monday over Oakland.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Angels desperately need to sweep the A's to really feel good about their chances of making the playoffs. I think they will at least take the first two games of the series.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Los Angeles will send out Zack Greinke against Jarrod Parker, and I think Greinke is the clear-cut starter to back in this one. Greinke is coming in off two dominant starts at Detroit and home against Boston. In those two outings he allowed just 3 earned runs on 10 hits over 14 and 2/3 innings of work.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Parker has been solid in 2012, but is coming off a bad start at Cleveland. He allowed 5 runs on eight hits in just five innings of work. I look for those struggles to carry over into tonight's game.FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Los Angeles is 7-1 in their last 8 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game, 8-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite, and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win.

SPORTS WAGERS

Houston +190 over PITTSBURGH

In a favorable pitching matchup yesterday and having just been swept by the Brewers over the weekend, the Pirates had five hits in the opener of this series and lost 5-1. Pittsburgh has now dropped six of their past eight and 20 of their past 30 games. The Bucs are still in this thing but the pressure of being in a playoff battle for the first time in two decades has this team on edge.

Wandy Rodriguez seemingly got a reprieve a month ago when he was traded to these Pirates from Houston. It appears being in a playoff race is something he’s not used to either. In seven starts, Rodriguez is 2-4 with a 4.12 ERA in his new digs. Rodriguez's skills don't spell a collapse but what they do spell is an aging pitcher in trouble. His rise in xERA (4.90) confirms what’s on the surface. Rodriguez’s strikeout rate has dropped by a significant two K’s per game. He’s now beginning to walk more batters (7BB/6K’s over his past 11 innings) than ever and that might be the most telling sign of them all.

Jordan Lyles has given up 11 runs in two starts vs. Pittsburgh this year despite a 14 K/0 BB in those games. That seems to be his season in a nutshell, as his underlying skills are better than his surface stats. He also owns a rock solid 53% groundball rate. The Astros are under no pressure. They’re pretty much “free-rolling” the rest of the way. If they don’t win another game in the final month, it’s not going to be a big deal. They’re expected to lose. They appear to be having fun. They’ve won two of their past three and they should’ve won the weekend series over the Reds. As a 2-1 favorite, the Pirates and Rodriguez, both of whom are struggling under this pressure, become an instant fade.


L.A. Angels -117 over OAKLAND

In seven starts since being traded to the Angels, L.A has lost four of Zack Greinke’s starts. Greinke’s ERA over that span is 4.65. In four of his first five starts as an Angel, he allowed four runs or more. As a result, he’s very undervalued here and that allows us to step in at a cheap price with an elite pitcher.

Greinke has 162 k’s with just 45 walks issued in 170 innings. Greinke has flashed elite skills for years and this season is no exception. He has a 52% groundball rate, an outstanding K/BB ratio and it’s been said that he doesn’t throw the same pitch twice in a game. The reason his numbers aren’t Cy Young-like is a very unlucky 71% strand rate on the season. Pay little attention to his surface results. Greinke is the same pitcher he was when he was dominating opponents en route to his first Cy Young award. He’s the straight goods.

Jarrod Parker is no Greinke. His 2.47 home ERA is fraudulent. Parker has enjoyed some success early on in his big league career, but his xERA at home of 4.33 emphasizes the degree to which his results have exceeded his skills. His line-drive rate of 26% reveals that balls are being hit hard against him. Parker’s 1.32 WHIP, which is quite ordinary, also reveals the degree in which luck has played a big part. Parker has upside but he’s simply not on the same level as Greinke and the A’s offense is not on the same level as the Halos. In terms of laying less than 20 cents, this is as good as it gets

I definitely see a starting pitching mismatch here & a "boatrace" is quite possible here. Houston sends out Jordan Lyles, & he has simply been terrible on the ROAD & also vs these Pirates this season. Lyles is (1-6) in 10 road starts this season, with a 6.88 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, & a .327 BAA. Add on his ineptness vs these Pirates this season; 2 starts, 9.90 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and .348 BAA & I really expect the Pirates to get to him by the 5th or 6th inning tonight. While the Pirates are struggling and now stand 2.5 games out of a wild card spot, they KNOW they must take care of business in this Astros series here, & they send out ex-Astros SP Wandy Rodriguez tonight. Wandy has been very solid his L/2 starts, vs Milwaukee and the Cardinals, & he did defeat these Astros at Minute Maid Park back on July 28th. Houston has stuggled on the road vs LH & I feel confident that Wandy out pitches Lyles here & hands the ball over to the Pirates best arms in their good bullpen tonight, & I am all over the PIRATES RL tonight.

PITTSBURGH -1.5 (-105) over Houston: The Pirates have been sliding and can not afford to lose these games vs the Lowly Astros, especially at home. Pittsburgh has been one of the best home teams all year long, while Houston has been one of the worst on the road, yet Houston won in Pittsburgh last night and i feel this sets up for a big rebound game by Pittsburgh tonight. Also helps that Jordans Lyles goes for Houston tonight. Jordan is 1-6 with a 6.88 ERA on the road and Houston is 1-9 in his road starts. In Houston's lasy 6 road losses with him on the mound, they have been outscored by a count of 56-13, while losing each game by 4 runs or more. Jordan has pitched once here this year and allowed 7 ER's in just 4 innings of an 11-2 Pittsburgh win. The Pirates send out Wandy Rodriguez to right the ship and he has pitched well in his last 2 starts, allowing 3 ER's in 12.2 innings of work.  In his last start vs St Louis he allowed 0 ER's on just 3 hits in 6 innings, and should have little problems shutting down a Houston team that hit's lefties at a .197 clip and scores just 2.48 rp/ 9 innings off of them on the road. Look for Pittsburgh to get back on track with a nice easy 5+ run win over the lowly Astros.

LA Angels/ Oakland Over 7.5: Google News Play Zach Greinke has been pitching well for the Angels of late, but he does have a 5.03 in his 3 road starts for them so far, with an average of 11.3 rpg being scored in the 3 games. Zach has pitched once here this year and in that game he allowed 4 ER's and 17 runs were scored in the game. Jarod Parker has pitched well for the A's and he does have a 2.48 ERA at home, but that ERA is 3.78 in his last 5 starts here. This pick isn't really about the pitching as both offenses have been hot and just hitting any starter that has come their way. The Angels come in hitting .273 and scoring 5.1 rpg in their last 10 games, while this scorching A's offense has and average of .293 and a scoring average of 7.5 rpg in their last 10 games. They have also hit 22 HR's in their last 10 games. Both offenses should continue to hit and score as this one flies OVER the total.

Baltimore/ Toronto Under 8: Without Bautista in the lineup the jays are having problems scoring runs. They come in averaging just 3.5 rpg in their last 10 games and have averaged just 2.4 rpg in in their current home stand (5 games). Now they get to face Zach Britton, who has been very good in his last 3 starts, posting a 1.25 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over that stretch. Zach did face Toronto once this year and allowed just 2 ER's in 6.2 innings of work in that start. Carlos Villanueva has pitched very well for the Jays this year with a 3.10 ERA overall and a 2.44 ERA at home. Carlos has a 1.14 WHIP at home and his home starts on the year have averaged a mere 5.86 rpg. In his blast 10 starts overall he has allowed more than 3 ER's just twice and has allowed 2 ER's or less in 6 of those starts. He has struggled some with the O's in his career (5.32 ERA in 4 starts), but will be tanking on an O's team that has averaged just 3.8 rpg on the road this year. We also have an Ump behind the plate (Jim Reynolds), who has seen 7 of his last 8 go Under the total, with an average of 5.6 rpg being scored in those games.  I really expect this one to struggle to reach 6 runs.

Texas -151 over KANSAS CITY: Gonna ride the hot Rangers here. Texas is 12-4 in their last 16 games and have really beaten up on the weak teams this year, going 71-33 in their last 104 games vs a team with a losing record and they are 14-2 in Matt Harrison's last 16 road starts. The Rangers are 4-1 in Matt's last 5 starts vs the Royals, while he is 2-0 with a 2.02 ERA in 2 career starts in this park. Jeremy Guthrie has pitched well since coming over to to the Royals, with a 2-2 mark and a 2.45 ERA at home, but he has struggled with the Rangers of late, going 0-3 with a 4.88 ERA in his last 5 starts vs them and I see him struggling vs them again as he will face a Rangers offense that has averaged 5.7 rpg in this last 10 games. KC has averaged 4.7 rpg in their last 10, but still will struggle to get much off of Harrison in this one. The Royals had swept Detroit at home last week, but has since dropped 3 of 4 and I just don't see them getting a win tonight vs the hot Rangers. POWER ANGLE FOR THIS PLAY--- Texas is 23-3 in Matt Harrison's last 26 road starts vs a team with a losing record.

These two NL West teams are trending in two different directions, and that continued yesterday with the Giants picking up a 9-8 victory in extra innings.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the loss totally deflate the Diamondbacks, who led 8-7 heading into the home half of the ninth.  Meanwhile, the Giants are still looking to expand their division lead, which is still only 4.5 games over the rival Dodgers.

Arizona has now lost 9 of 11 overall to drop all the way to 11.5 games back of the Giants. Their playoff chances are now all but done. The good news is that yesterday they scored eight runs, their most in any game since 8.18.  The bad news is they still lost.  Allowing 9 or more runs in a game is not a good sign for the Diamondbacks, who are 2-9 the next game after giving up that many runs their previous game this season.  They are also 4-11 off a division loss.  You shouldn't expect them to score eight runs again, given that they average less than four per game on the road this year.

Pitching matchup favors the home team as well.  Ryan Vogelsong is outstanding at home with a 2.44 ERA in 13 starts.  The team is 17-8 when he starts this season, including 12-2 in night games. In five career starts vs. Arizona, Vogelsong has a 1.89 ERA.  This includes a strong showing earlier this year when he allowed just one run over seven innings.  The Giants have won 10 of their last 13.

Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 +114FOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Dodgers are showing value on the run line at this price with ace Clayton Kershaw on the hill. The Dodgers have won each of his last 6 starts against the Padres, and those wins came by an average of 2.5 runs. He didn't allow more than 3 earned runs in any of these starts. The Dodgers are also 4-0 in his last 4 home starts versus San Diego, winning those by an average of 2.0 runs. Again, he didn't allow more than 3 earned runs in any of these outings. The Padres are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings, including 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles. Take the Dodgers on the run line.
