San Diego Padres
San Diego has yet to announce who will be taking the mound for them.
In the past week San Diego’s pitching staff owns a mediocre 4.09 ERA to go along with a high slash line of .270/.335/.489. They have been efficient though as they own a solid 38:12 K:BB ratio.
San Diego has played sub-par baseball in the past week as they could only win two of their five contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .228/.302/.321 to go with 11 extra-base hits and 17 RBI.
Manaea was okay in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his eighth win of the season in a 4-2 win over the Detroit Tigers. He was able to go six innings giving up five hits, two earned runs and one home run while he could only strike out two and walked one.
In 17 starts Manaea owns a bleak strikeout (6.50 K/9) rate, but does a solid job not giving up free bases (1.69 BB/9) and stranding base runners (76.4% LOB%). The end-result is a solid 3.38 ERA, but his 4.25 FIP and .219 BABIP indicates he’s had some good defense and luck backing him up.
Oakland continues to be one of the hottest teams in baseball as they’ve won five of their last six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .268/.323/.439 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Padres +1.5
Manaea is coming off of a solid month of June where he posted a 2.84 ERA and a slash line of.202/.240/.361. However, San Diego’s pitching staff hasn’t been terrible, and their starter will be backed up by top-five bullpen. Oakland may get the win, but I expect San Diego to keep this outing close.
