The San Diego Padres need a big home victory after losing five of their last six games. The Padres have allowed 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games.

The Marlins are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Nicolinos last 7 starts. The Padres are 13-39 in their last 52 during game 3 of a series and 19-39 in their last 58 vs. a team with a winning record. The Marlins are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in San Diego.
The Marlins have owned the NL West this season and are flat out rocking the Padres in this series. San Diego has shown us no reason to think it can prevent a sweep. Give me the Marlins on the road and the fair price.
