San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
This is an important series for both of these teams because they are both looking to gain ground on teams that are ahead of them in their division. The Phillies took the 1st game of the series, but I am not sold they will take the 3rd game.
San Diego is the better team and they will have to show that on Sunday in order to win. I am confident they will do that and that is why I am confident backing them.
If San Diego is on their game, they should be able to hit Vince Velasquez. Whoever the pitcher for the Padres is will have to contain that Phillies lineup.
The moneyline is too expensive for me here, so I will go with the Padres on the run line.
