The San Diego Padres look to sweep the Cincinnati Reds Sunday afternoon.
The San Diego Padres look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Padres have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Padres have won six straight games when scoring more than three runs. Justin Upton leads San Diego with 62 hits and 37 RBI while Matt Kemp and Derek Norris have combined for 66 RBI. The San Diego Padres have won five of their last six road games. Odrisamer Despaigne gets the nod, and he’s 3-3 with a 4.56 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Despaigne’s first career game against the Reds.

The Cincinnati Reds look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Reds have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Reds have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Phillips leads with 58 hits and 25 RBI while Joey Votto and Todd Frazier have combined for 66 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have split their last eight home games. Johnny Cueto takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 2.90 ERA and 64 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 3-3 with a 4.50 ERA and 48 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 3-8 in their last 11 games as an underdog and 2-5 in Despaignes last 7 road starts. The Reds are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. National League West and 21-10 in Cuetos last 31 starts. The Padres are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Reds are almost automatic when Cueto is on the mound, and the Padres don't sweep teams often. I like the Reds ad the runline to give our wager the most value.
