(929) San Diego vs. Minnesota (930)
PICK: pinnacle @ Under 9 (-104)
DATE: September 13, 2017 - 8:10 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Win (1000) - Final Total 4
At 8:10 pm, our selection is on the San Diego Padres and Minnesota Twins 'under' the total. When the game in Minnesota between these two teams was over last night, the scoreboard looked more like it might have been a Vikings-Chargers game rather than Padres-Twins. Minnesota got their big bats out and did some yard work in completely dismantling the visitors by a score of 16-0. It's unlikely we'll see that kind of run production from the home team tonight, especially given that the pitching match-up is much better than it was yesterday. RHP Dinelson Lamet will go for the Padres opposite the Twins ace RH Ervin Santana. Lamet has had a serious run support issue lately. In his last four starts, Lamet has has allowed just seven runs in 22 2/3 innings, or an ERA below three runs. But in those four games, Lamet has gone 0-3 while the Padres are 0-4, largely due to the fact that they have managed a total of just three runs. Santana has faced the Padres a total of five times in his career (once with the Twins, twice with the Braves, and twice with the Angels) and the under is 5-0 in those. Take the 'under.' 10* PLAY. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
