4 units on San Diego +1.5 runs -129 (runline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
As much as we respect Johan Santana, the former Twins ace turned Met, is only 26-32 over his career on the road facing a -1.5 runline. The Mets have been a model of inconsistency all year and more inconsistent on the road at 13-18. The Mets have only ammassed three wins over their last 11 road tilts. Randy Wolf is pitching well enough to keep the Padres in games. Although they are just 5-7 in his 12 starts, that changes dramatically as the Padres would be 8-4 to a runline of +1.5. The Padres are in their best stretch of the season as they have now won 7 of 11, and we expect them to hang tough here or win the game outright, so we will back them on the runline.
