Minnesota Twins vs San Diego Padres 7/30/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Minnesota Twins will go against the San Diego Padres in MLB action in Petco Park, CA, on Saturday, July 30, 2022, at 7:15 PM ET.

 

Minnesota held onto the top spot in the AL Central for the majority of the season, but they were not able to gain much ground in what is looking like a tight three-team competition down the line.

 

The Twins had a difficult run of play, going only 5-9 in their last 14 games, and will be eager to turn things around quickly. With a good average of 4.65 runs per game, they are ranked 10th overall in offensive scoring.

 

The Twins’ pitching performed admirably up to this point, ranking 12th in runs allowed per game at 4.3. Home runs are a little of a problem, with the staff allowing 1.22 per game, which ranks only 26th.

 

Sonny Gray had a strong season thus far, coming in with a 5-3 record and a 3.52 ERA. He just had a strong outing against Detroit in which he pitched six innings, gave up just one run, and struck out seven batters.

 

  • The Minnesota Twins are 23-26 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 5 of the Twins’ last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 20 of the Twins’ 49 last matches at home.

Minnesota Twins vs San Diego Padres Predictions 7/30/2022

 

San Diego did well in moving on from the passing of legendary Fernando Tatis Jr. Even though the division is starting to look out of reach, the team finds itself solidly in the playoff picture.

 

This season, the key was pitching, with the staff allowing opponents to 4.1 runs per game, good for 9th place. Just a.231 opposing batting average and a.671 opposing OPS were allowed by them (5th).

 

Joe Musgrove served as the support up to this point, anchoring himself with a stellar 8-3 record and fantastic 2.63 ERA.

 

With 4.35 runs scored per game, the Padres are only 19th in the league offensively. They had trouble with power, hitting only 0.84 home runs per game on average, which ranks 27th.

 

Their undisputed best hitter, Manny Machado, led the way with a batting average of.299, 16 home runs, and 54 RBIs. Tatis Jr. taking batting practice this week might provide the offense a major boost in time for the stretch push.

 

  • The San Diego Padres are 30-24 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Padres’ last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 18 of the Padres’ 46 last matches at home.

Minnesota Twins vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. San Diego has a better overall record, and at first sight, Musgrove’s statistics appear to be more remarkable of the two pitchers in this situation.

 

Cracks are starting to appear, too, as Musgrove gave up four or more runs in three of his previous six games. Because their dependable ace is fading, the Padres are only 1-5 throughout that span.

 

The Twins come into this game with a nice offensive pace, averaging over seven runs per game over their previous four contests.

 

Sonny Gray has also been inconsistent lately, but he is coming off a great outing in his most recent start and appears ready to take advantage of a San Diego squad that has a below-average run production.

 

Over the years, the Twins enjoyed excellent success in Southern California, going 6-1 in their last 7 at San Diego. The Twins are the value play in this matchup of two rather evenly matched teams predicted to win 5-3.
