5 units on Minnesota +147 (moneyline) (risk 5 to return 5) RESULT: WIN
Minnesota represents MLB’s hottest team as they have put six straight in the win column. The offense is hot, the pitching has been good, and the pen is doing its job. The Padres have struggled all season and their offense makes it difficult to win games as it has been for the most part missing in action. The Padres have already had 30 games this season scoring two runs or less, a major league high, and opponents are stealing them blind on the defensive end to the tune of 98 stolen bases catching only 13 would-be base thieves. Peavy can't do it alone as witnessed by the Padres 2-6 mark in his last eight starts. Minnesota stays hot here and we like them as a chunky dog.
