The San Diego Padres are in Cincinnati today where they take on the Reds in the first game of a three game series. The Padres have yet to play the Reds this season but they played them well last season winning 5 of the 6 meetings.
Head to Head Trends
Padres are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Cincinnati Reds (-110)
The Cincinnati Reds are 4th in the National League Central 12 games out of 1st place. The Reds actually had a decent start to the season but they hit a bit of a rough patch a few weeks back that saw them lose 9 games in a row. They do seem to be playing much better again and have won 4 of their last 6 games.
On the hill for the Reds today is Raisel Iglesias who has one of the harder names to spell. Iglesias is 1-1 with a 5.11 ERA on the season. I don’t know a whole lot about Iglesias he has just 4 career starts and he looks pretty average so far.
Cincinnati Reds Trends
Reds are 5-12 in their last 17 overall.
Reds are 11-27 in their last 38 during game 1 of a series.
San Diego Padres (+100)
The San Diego Padres are 3rd in the Nationals League West 4.5 games back of the 1st place LA Dodgers. The Padres got off to a great start this season winning 10 of their first 15 games but they faded pretty quick after that although they do seem to be playing some good ball again and have won 6 of their last 9 games so looks like they are back headed in the right direction.
Taking the rubber for the Padres today is Tyson Ross who is 2-5 with a 3.76 ERA on the season. Ross struggled a bit earlier in the season and a lot of that had to do with some control issues but looks like he has fixed that problem and hasn’t allowed more then 3 walks in a game over his last 7 starts.
San Diego Padres Trends
Padres are 2-7 in Ross’ last 9 starts.
Padres are 35-17 in their last 52 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.
I like the San Diego Padres over the Reds in this one. The Padres look like they are playing much better of late and Tyson Ross is looking also strong again so I think they win tonight.
