Cincinnati Reds vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. Last Sunday, the Padres returned from a nine-game road trip.


The Padres’ bullpen was responsible for a dreadful 6.43 ERA and 5.74 FIP during the last ten days and 28 innings of play because they played in hitter-friendly parks in Chicago, Phoenix, and Mexico City.


On the other hand, throughout 30.2 innings of work during that time, the Reds’ bullpen amassed a respectable 2.64 ERA and 3.02 FIP.


At Petco Park, which is ranked 29th in the majors on Baseball Savant’s park factors three-year rolling leaderboard, expect the Padres’ pitching staff to get better.


San Diego has undoubtedly more power at the plate than Cincinnati does, despite the fact that Manny Machado (87 OPS+) and Juan Soto (.202 batting average) had a difficult start to the year.


The San Diego Padres will claim victory by a predicted score of 7-3.
