4 units on Philadelphia -112 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
Adam Eaton has some horrible numbers, but somehow in the end his teams win games when he is on the mound. Here is a pitcher that has pitched to an ERA of over 5 the last 3+ years, and over 6 last year, but his team's record in his starts is 44-28! The bottom line is winning, and even though he gets hit, he manages to stay in games. If you compare career numbers to Eaton and Wolf, there isn't much to live off, so we have a comparable pitching matchup, with the Phil's possessing a much more potent lineup and playing at home. The Padres are really struggling out of the gate, and are at the bottom of MLB in money lost if you backed them every game. We will ride the Phil's as a valued even money favorite at home.
