MLB Betting Trends
The under is 8-1 in the last nine Padres games on Wednesdays. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.
The Mets are 8-22 in their last 30 home games. New York is 3-9 in its last 12 Wednesday games.
It's hard to trust the Mets these days and Oswalt hasn't shown he can consistently get out MLB hitters yet. Richard can occasionally frustrate hitters and toss a very good game. With how much the Mets are struggling offensively, this contest could be a prime opportunity for a solid Richard outing. With how poor New York has been playing at home, I'm comfortable with a daytime bet on the Padres in this spot.
