The Boston Red Sox and the San Diego Padres meet in MLB action from Petco Park on Sunday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.

Odds

The Padres are -145 home favorites while the Red Sox are +125 road underdogs. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Corey Kluber will start for Boston and is 2-5 with a 6.41 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Michael Wacha will start for the Padres and is 4-1 with a 4.06 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Boston’s 4-2 win on Saturday made it back-to-back wins and wins in 6 of the last 7 meetings for the Red Sox over the Padres in this head-to-head matchup.

Trends

Boston is 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-5 in their last 7 interleague games while the over is 7-3-1 in their last 11 games against the NL West. San Diego is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 2-6 in their last 8 games against the AL East while the under is 8-1-1 in their last 10 interleague home games.

Pick

I’m backing the over here. Michael Wacha and Corey Kluber are two starting pitchers that I simply don’t trust and both have had a tendency to give up hard hit contact and home runs for much of the season. These are two potent offensive lineups 1 through 9, and I think we get a game with some offensive fireworks here. Give me the over.
