MLB Picks: July09

Written by Cartichoke

What is good everybody, hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. You know what will make this Saturday even better? A winner. I am going to try my best and fulfill that. I want a winner badly. I am hungry for it.

So let’s head to Petco Park where we have the San Francisco Giants (41-41) take on the San Diego Padres (49-36).

Two of the team’s better pitchers are going at it tonight in this matchup. For the Giants they are sending Carlos Rodón on the mound. Carlos is 7-5 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He finished the month of June with an insane month, in six games he went 3-0, with a 1.25 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. Just insane stats for a month. In his one game in July against the Diamondbacks he pitched 5 innings giving up 5 hits and 4 earned runs.

On the Padres mound, is right hander Yu Darvish. Yu is 7-4 on the season with a 3.53 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. He as well had an amazing June, in five games he went 3-1 with a 2.52 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP.


Holy smokes, I just checked to see what the best line on betstamp for the total in this game was. The total is set at 6.5. I was going to lean on the under but seeing 6 as the total scares the life out of me.

Yu is a much better pitcher at home than he is on the road. Road: 3-3, 5.25 ERA, 1.27 WHIP. Home: 4-1, 1.75 ERA, 0.73 WHIP. The Giants are 1-8 in their last 9 games overall. Padres are 16-5 in Darvish’s last 21 home starts.

Give me the Padres -105 on PowerPlay

I’ll see you at the top.
