MLB Odds/Point Spread: San Diego Padres -120, Total Odds: 7.5

Snell, the starting pitcher for the Padres, enters this game with an additional day of rest and a strong 4-0 record over his last five outings. In that time, he has an ERA under three and the second-highest K/9 rate among NL starters. Snell will face a Marlins club with a season batting average of almost.300 against lefties, but in his start against them in Miami earlier this season, he could limit this squad to just three hits without a run in six innings of work. With an ERA close to eight and a record of 0-3 over the last five games, Marlins starter Luzardo has struggled. Luzardo suffered the loss against the Padres earlier this year after giving up four hits and five runs in 5.1 innings.
