The Padres are struggling at the plate, averaging just 4.05 runs per game while hitting .232 as a team. On the mound, San Diego is pretty solid. The Padres have a 4.24 team ERA and a 1.21 team WHIP.

MLB Betting Trends
The Nationals have won four of their last five road games but just 6-20 in their last 26 series openers.
The Padres are 6-2 in their last eight home games against a left-handed starter and 5-1 in their last six series openers.
Corbin is coming off a pretty rough outing at Cincinnati, giving up eight runs in just 2.2 innings. He has really struggled on the road, posting a 4.96 ERA in six starts. Lucchesi has been pretty steady, allowing two runs or less in three of his last four starts. At home, he has been lights out, posting a 2.61 ERA while holding opponents to a .203 batting average. I think he continues to pitch well at home while the Padres hitting sees an uptick in power against a struggling Corbin.
