The San Diego Padres and New York Yankees meet Friday in MLB action atYankee Stadium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
San Diego Padres Betting Preview
The San Diego Padres have scored 18 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Padres have won 5 of their last 6 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Xander Bogaerts leads the Padres with 47 hits and 19 RBI, while Juan Soto and Jake Cronenworth have combined for 81 hits and 40 RBI. Joe Musgrove gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Musgrove’s first career game against the Yankees.
New York Yankees Betting Preview
The New York Yankees have scored 13 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 10 games. The Yankees have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Anthony Rizzo leads the Yankees with 58 hits and 30 RBI, while Gleyber Torres and Aaron Judge have combined for 91 hits and 58 RBI. Randy Vasquez will make his major league debut when he takes the hill. Vasquez was 16-18 with a 3.31 ERA and 381 strikeouts in his minor league career.
The Padres are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 4-10 in their last 14 overall. The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 73-35 in their last 108 home games. The under is 21-5 in Padres last 26 overall. The over is 13-4 in Yankees last 17 overall. The Padres are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in New York.
I don't like backing pitchers making their big league debut, but we're getting the Yankees at home with a plus money price. Also, Joe Musgrove has been rough through 24 innings with his 6.75 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. No matter what Vasquez does in his first effort, the Yankees offense should be able to provide some support. I'll gladly take the home dog in this interleague contest.
