Pick #1 – San Diego Padres at Chicago White Sox
MLB Baseball is in full and wow has it been awesome so far and tonight we set our sights on the San Diego Padres (13-23) against the Chicago White Sox (15-17) in matchup that see two of the weaker offenses square up. This pick starts off with all the makings of a solid play as the opening number on the total of 9 has now dropped to 8 thanks to an early smart money push which we will happily tail. Were getting all the right signals for this one and that is reinforced by stats such as the total has gone UNDER in 5 of San Diego's last 6 games on the road and the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Chi White Sox's last 6 games when playing at home against San Diego giving us every indication that this one should remain low as well. The public consensus for this game is 55% in favor of the over so we get the nice general consensus and public fade that we always like to have on our side in this one as well.. The San Diego Padres produce 3.53 runs this year and the Chicago White Sox output 4.03 runs on the year so we get that perfect setting where the offensive scoring don't break the Total line which is a huge value spot to be in when it comes to playing this UNDER. The weather at Guaranteed Rate Field is looking like 64°F and Sunny with a Humidity of 67% and a Wind is North-northeast 7 mph and with the wind blowing too hard right field the score should have no problem staying low. Another really favorable part of this UNDER bet is the fact that both the Padres and White Sox have elite closing staffs which should eliminate any late run bullpen blowup worries. One of the best parts of this pick is that we get a Miguel Gonzalez (R) pitching who has a .228 AVG against righties (7/9 Padres are RH hitters). We also get starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin (R) pitching who has a 1.69 May ERA and has been pitching out of this world as of late. The computer predicted score for this matchup is 8.4 so the UNDER 8 play gets all the right leans despite being slightly of from the AI predictor and at a -110 we should be super happy to grab a bunch value in this spot for all of the reasons above.
