Atlanta Braves at San Diego Padres Preview & Picks

The Over is backed to cash in the opening game of this series.

We have two solid offenses coming up against two very hittable pitchers, so the runs are likely to pile up.

  • Atlanta pitcher Spencer Schwellenbach is 2-4 with a 5.02 ERA
  • San Diego starter Randy Vasquez is 2-4 with a 4.66 ERA
  • The Over has cashed in 14 of San Diego's last 18 games
  • San Diego Padres are 3-1 in meetings with Atlanta this season

Head To Head

  • San Diego Padres lead the regular season series 3-1
  • Atlanta Braves won 3-0 when the two teams last met on May 20

Atlanta Braves Form

Atlanta come into this series looking to get back on track following back-to-back defeats in Arizona.

The Braves ended June with a 4-2 defeat at home to Pittsburgh, and then started July with a 5-3 loss to San Francisco.

They rebounded from those defeats with a 3-1 win over the Giants, only to then lose the final game of the series, 4-2.

Atlanta dropped the series opener against Philadelphia too, 8-6, but responded with 5-1 and 6-0 victories to spark a four-game streak.

The Braves then won 5-4 and 6-2 in Arizona, but they had to settle for a split of the series as their run was ended by 7-5 and 1-0 defeats to the Diamondbacks.

San Diego Padres Form

San Diego come into this series looking to get back on track after losing four consecutive games.

The Padres stacked up a bunch of victories during the second half of June, winning nine times in their final 11 games of the month.

They started July with a 7-0 defeat in Texas, but rebounded quickly to take the final two meetings with the Rangers, 6-4 and 3-1.

San Diego then returned home to win the series opener against Arizona, 10-8, but they have not tasted victory since then.

The Padres lost each of their next three meetings with the Diamondbacks, losing 7-5, 9-1 and 8-3.

Verdict

The Over has hit repeatedly in San Diego's recent games, and that trend is likely to continue with two hittable pitchers heading to the mound.
