2 units on Game Total UNDER 6.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Two of the top pitchers this season square off in San Diego tonight as the Diamondbacks send Dan Haren against the Padres’ Jake Peavy. These pitchers have combined to start 48 games, and in 34 of them they have failed to give up more than three runs in that start or 71% of the time. This is a punchless Padres team that has produced three runs or less against any pitcher 73 times this season, so it isn't far fetched to see them get shutout here as they have already been shutout 10 times on the season. Arizona isn't exactly an offensive machine either as they have produced three runs or less 52 times this season. These teams score three runs in 40.4% of all their games and now they each will face a top pitcher. This situation certainly bodes well for each to add another outing below three runs. As a result we like the UNDER here.
