The Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres meet Sunday in MLB action at Petco Park.

The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Marlins have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Miami Marlins have won 11 of their last 13 games when scoring three or more runs. Starlin Castro leads the Marlins with 50 hits and 18 RBI while Brian Anderson and Miguel Rojas have combined for 95 hits and 37 RBI. Trevor Richards gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 3.82 ERA and 55 strikeouts this season. This will be Richards’ first career game against the Padres.

The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Padres have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 65 hits and 34 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 98 hits and 55 RBI. Matt Strahm gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 3.21 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Strahm is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and five strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

The Marlins are 16-35 in their last 51 during game 3 of a series, 13-44 in their last 57 road games and 1-9 in Richards' last 10 road starts. The Padres are 34-70 in their last 104 Sunday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Strahm's last 5 starts vs. National League East. The Marlins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Strahm's last 4 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Richards' last 5 road starts.

Strahm has been good this season and goes deep into games, but I'm not seeing why the Padres are this big of a favorite. The Padres don't win consistently and seem to scratch and claw when they do win. The Miami Marlins have quietly been quite profitable these last couple of weeks and the offense for once is showing some signs of production. Richards has also allowed just two runs with 11 strikeouts in his last 12.2 innings. Based on the big plus money, I'll gladly take the big plus money. The Padres shouldn't be this big of a favorite against anyone. 

Miami Marlins +175
