Cincinnati Reds vs San Diego Padres Predictions 5/1/2023


The Padres were victorious 6-4 over the Giants yesterday in their most recent game.


Luis Garcia was the winning pitcher after throwing two innings without giving up a hit or an earned run while striking out two, while Juan Soto went 2-for-3 with an RBI to lead them offensively.


On Monday night in Southern California, Weaver will start on the mound.


The 29-year-old appeared in two games this season and faced Texas and Pittsburgh, giving up 10 runs on 12 hits, including five home runs, in 11.2 innings. His K-BB ratio is 4:1.


At Petco tomorrow, the 30-year-old Snell gets the bump.


He dropped three straight decisions, but his past two appearances against Atlanta (two runs on three hits and 3 walks) and the Chicago Cubs (two runs on 4 hits and five walks) showed signs of improvement. In April, Snell’s K-BB ratio was 1:1.


  • The Padres are 3-2 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The San Diego Padres are 8-6 in their road games against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Padres’ last 5 matches.


Cincinnati Reds vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds performed well at night (.253/.331/.349/.680), and Cincinnati has strong splits against left-handers (.250/.323/.371/.694).


Blake Snell’s walk rate is high, his strikeouts are down, and he already allowed a long ball in four straight innings. In 2023, he did not pitch past the fifth inning once either.


He’ll turn the ball over to the Padres’ bullpen, which was overworked on Saturday after Joe Musgrove left a 16-11 slugfest after 3.1 innings.


San Diego needed five relievers to get the win. The Reds were playing better baseball lately, winning back-to-back series after being swept in Pittsburgh.


The Padres are hitting just .211 against right-handed pitching with a .312 OBP, .386 SLG, and a .698 OPS compared to .247/.313/.413/.724 against left-handers, so Luke Weaver should perform better than in his previous two appearances.


Although Petco Park is an excellent venue for sporting events, the ball simply does not leave the park as frequently as it did this past weekend in Mexico City, where San Diego obtained 22 runs and slugged seven long balls.


The Cincinnati Reds will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
