Rays at Padres picks and predictions


Padres 4 Rays 3


San Diego is 5-0 in its last 5 games after scoring 2 or fewer runs in its previous game. Tampa Bay is 1-4 in its last 4 interleague road games vs. right-handed starters and Musgrove has given up 3 runs or fewer in 4 straight starts.

BET PADRES (-145).

Run line/Against the spread

Two of Tampa Bay’s last 3 losses have been by just 1 run. Rays +1.5 (-160) will probably hit but there’s no need to pay the higher price on the run line when Padres ML is the better play. Bet San Diego ML and/or the total instead.



The Under is 4-0-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 interleague games and 7-1-1 in its last 9 on the road.

The Under has gone 19-6-1 in San Diego’s last 26 home games and should hit again Sunday as Musgrove (2.12 ERA in June) continues to string together good starts.

BET UNDER 8.5(+100).
