The Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 5-2 in Kennedys last 7 starts. The Mariners are 8-3 in their last 11 games following an off day and 1-5 in Paxtons last 6 starts. The under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
The Mariners seem to have gotten their season back on track with a few wins, and they've been money coming off a off day. I look for Seattle to win this game.
