Padres’ Surging Bats Have The OVER Cashing

The San Diego Padres have not supplied much more than fade material so far this season, but a sudden offensive burst has seen the team become a profitable OVER play. The OVER is 6-1 in the Padres’ past seven outings, while San Diego has averaged 5.9 runs per game in that span. The Padres kick off a four-game set with the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ball Park Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Padres are 8-2 in their past 10 games against the Reds.
  • The Reds are 3-9 in their last 12 games when John Lamb starts.
  • Matt Kemp has a lifetime .319 batting average at the Great American Ball Park.

The Padres' lineup has been finding their groove at the plate, but has been doing so by playing small ball. In San Diego’s past seven games the Friars have recorded 49 singles compared to 16 extra-base hits – only five of which have been home runs.

The Reds will send John Lamb – who has been surprisingly solid – to the bump to try and slow down the Padres. In the month of June, Lamb has a 2.66 ERA while holding opponents to just one run in three of his four starts.
