The Reds continue their West Coast road trip when they lock horns with the Padres in game 2 of a 4 game set at Petco. The visit to California didn’t start off well for Cincinnati, getting swept by the Dodgers prior to Thursday’s opener with San Diego.
The Reds offense has really gone into the tank as they put up just 6 runs total vs. LA. Cincinnati doesn’t have much familiarity with San Diego starter Matt Strahm, having faced him just 12 times as a team.
Oddsmakers are definitely expecting a low scoring affair on Friday with an O/U of just 7.5. Will Cincinnati starter Anthony Descalfani contribute to those miniscule numbers? It hasn’t looked like it lately as he’s allowed 10ER over 8.1 IP the last two starts.
San Diego Padres
San Diego looks for some consistency before Friday night’s contest. In the past two weeks, the Padres have put together a 4 game win streak followed by a 3 game losing streak.
San Diego is just 4-5 at home before Thursday’s series opener, but the Reds have lost all 7 of their road contests prior to Game 1 vs. the Padres. San Diego’s offense has been held to 2 runs scored in 3 of their last 5.
Strahm is 0-2 on the season despite allowing just 1 ER total in his last two starts (10 IP). Strahm has only faced 1 Reds batter more than 1 time (Jose Iglesias, 1-3) so he should have the edge of lack of familiarity.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Reds are 16-37 last 53 overall
- Reds are 15-36 last 51 road games
- Reds are 1-4 in Desclafana’s last 5 road starts
- Padres are 1-4 last 5 home games
- Padres are 1-4 in Strahm’s last 5 starts

There’s decent value on the Padres as the better team, at home, and against a Reds team that dropped their first 7 road contests of the year.
