San Diego Padres vs Minnesota Twins 5/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The San Diego Padres will meet with the Minnesota Twins in MLB action in Target Field, MN, on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


The sixth start of the year for Michael Wacha will be on the mound. In his previous start against the Reds, Wacha pitched brilliantly, pitching six innings of scoreless relief, earning a no-decision in a game the Padres lost.


April was a difficult month for the veteran, who performed poorly in games against the Brewers and Diamondbacks. Wacha tossed 31.1 innings this season, recording a 5.46 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and a 2-1 record.


He has a subpar record versus Minnesota, going 3-1 with a 4.13 ERA in 28.1 innings pitched.


Although San Diego won two of its last three series, they lost two of their last three games against the rival Dodgers this past weekend.


Only nine runs were scored by LA throughout the series due to the pitching. In this game, the Padres are starting a road trip. In late April, they were defeated at Wrigley Field in their last road series.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of San Diego’s last 5 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games with the Twins.
  • The Padres are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches on the road against Minnesota.

San Diego Padres vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 5/9/2023


Louie Varland will make his third season start for Minnesota. Varland had a strong start to the season, allowing only three runs in six innings of work against the Yankees while fanning eight.


Minnesota won the game 4-3. In his second, he struggled, allowing four runs in 4.2 innings against the White Sox, which resulted in a no-decision.


Varland, who is still regarded as a rookie, threw 26 innings with the Twins last season and had a respectable 3.81 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.


The AL Central leader Minnesota was erratic despite a strong start. They lost a series in Cleveland over the weekend after losing two out of three games to the White Sox.


They recently excelled at pitching, allowing four runs or fewer in four straight games. The Twins’ most reliable hitter so far this year was Byron Buxton.


The 29-year-old has eight home runs, 19 RBIs, and a strong .860 OPS after collecting nine RBIs in his past ten games.


Last season, Buxton hit two home runs and drove in three runs in three games against the Padres. He is being employed as a DH since he is prone to injuries.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Minnesota’s last 6 matches.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The Twins are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches at home.

San Diego Padres vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. With a 10-6 record over their last 16 games and victories in six of their past nine road games, the San Diego Padres are in good shape.


After losing a series in Cleveland, the Minnesota Twins were inconsistent lately, winning just two of their past six games. Michael Wacha is also pitching for the Padres.


The veteran recently defeated the Reds with six innings of scoreless pitching. Last year, he silenced Minnesota by allowing them to score just two runs in 11 innings.


In five of their previous six games, the pitching of the Padres allowed three runs or fewer, which is exceptional. The Padres should hit Louie Varland, a rookie starter for the Twins.


In just 10.2 innings during his two starts this year, Varland struggled and allowed seven runs, including four home runs. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of  5-2.
