Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres Betting Prediction

The Padres send LHP Blake Snell to the mound against Colorado’s 13th ranked scoring offense on Wednesday night (4.47 RSPG), who’s having the worst campaign of his seven-year career sitting 3-5 with a 4.43 ERA across 12 outings for San Diego, which already includes a trio of miserable performances against the Rockies (14.1 IP, 12 ER).

On the flip side, the Rockies send RHP Chad Kuhl to the hill against San Diego’s 14th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.42 RSPG), who’s also having a bumpy campaign sitting 6-6 with a 4.59 ERA across 19 starts this season (1.49 WHIP), which already includes a pair of bumpy outings against the Padres (9 IP, 8 ER).

I’ll take the over here, as Kuhl has tossed five innings or less and allowed three runs or more in seven of his last nine outings for the Rockies (2-4, 6.34 ERA); setting the stage for a relatively high-scoring battle against the Padres and Snell, who’s 0-1 with a 6.91 ERA across three starts against Colorado this season (1.88 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Padres 7, Rockies 5
Best Bet: Over 8.5 (+100)
