The Pads have won the first three in this series. We rode them in the last two and will stay on this train as they go for the sweep. The Mets remain under .500 thanks in large part to their play on the road. While 17-11 at home, they are just 13-20 on the road, batting just .249. Over their past seven games they are hitting .228 and averaging just 3.6 runs per game. San Diego surely doesn't have an offense that inspires fear but they are getting it done. Their offense hasn't kept them from finding the win column as they have won nine of their last thirteen games. They also seem to have the Mets' number right now. New york is just 7-14 this season after a good defensive performance (holding opponent to 2 runs or less) and 7-21 after two straight road games. This game has a low total set at 8.5 with +100 juice. The Mets are 21-12 OVER this season to a total under 9. Over the past three seasons, Pedro is a perfect 8-0 OVER on the road when the total is set between 8.5 and 10. The Padres are 27-11 OVER the past three seasons after holding four straight opponents to under 5 runs. San Diego and the OVER here.
