San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies Betting Analysis

The San Diego Padres and the Colorado Rockies play the third of a four-game series on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at Coors Field.

The Padres are placed second in the National League West with a record of 50-39 overall and 27-19 on the road, which trails the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers by 7.5 games.

San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies Betting Prediction

The Padres send RHP Joe Musgrove to the mound against Colorado’s 14th ranked scoring offense on Wednesday night (4.44 RSPG), who’s having a phenomenal campaign sitting 8-2 with a 2.09 ERA across 15 starts (0.93 WHIP), which already includes a winning performance against the Rockies (6 IP, 0 ER).

On the other hand, the Rockies send RHP Chad Kuhl to the hill against San Diego’s 16th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.36 RSPG), who’s 6-5 with a 4.02 ERA on the year; despite going 3-0 with a 1.90 ERA across the month of April (4 GS, 0.85 WHIP).

I’ll back San Diego to cover here, as Kuhl has struggled for Colorado as of late, considering he’s 3-5 with a 5.15 ERA ERA across his last 12 starts, which already includes a miserable outing against the Padres (4.1 IP, 5 ER); setting the stage for a lopsided pitching matchup against a Cy Young front-runner in Musgrove, who’s tossed six innings or more and allowed two runs or less in nine of his last 11 appearances for San Diego (2.07 ERA, 0.95 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Padres 7, Rockies 2
Best Bet: Padres -1.5
