3 units on San Diego -133 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

It is hard to ignore the value on a team that underachieved to start the season, but has come alive now to win five straight. Greg Maddox continues to be a surgeon on the mound. This guy still paints corners and even doing so, has walked just 12 hitters the entire season. At times he gets hit hard, but with that said he has completed nine of 13 starts allowing six hits or less, and when you don't walk anyone it results in a 3.48 ERA. Clayton Kershaw may one day become a top big-league pitcher, but he is very unrefined right now. He has trouble staying in the strike zone resulting in eight walks in just 8.2 innings over his last two starts. It's hard to win in the big leagues when hitters wait it out, and hit from favorable counts. The Padres are on a roll, and in a favorable matchup at home as a light favorite. We will take the Padres here.
