MLB Moneyline Pick
The Padres have won three of their last four games at home and we believe they are the play here. Tim Hudson has been awful in two of his last three starts carrying a 10.50 ERA over his last three outings. He has taken on the Padres four times in 2014 and has three quality starts but lost two of those four games with one no decision. Odrisamer Despaigne has been up and down on the season but has been sharp at home 2.11 ERA in 7 starts and has faced the Giants twice this season allowing a single run in 13 innings.
Take the San Diego Padres + 116
