San Diego Padres at Detroit Tigers Betting Pick

The San Diego Padres are at the Detroit Tigers for the middle game of a three-game series on Saturday. The Padres picked up a win in Game 1 of the series, scoring some early runs and barely holding on to the lead.

San Diego is now 47-51 on the season but still in fourth place in the National League West. The Padres are 22-28 on the road this season.

For the Detroit Tigers, with their loss, they are now 44-53 on the season. The Tigers are in third place in the American League Central. The Tigers are now 20-26 when playing at home. Detroit had won back-to-back games before the Friday loss.

The Padres are -115 in this game over Detroit.

San Diego Seeking Consistent Play

The San Diego Padres are looking to get a winning streak going and see if they cannot make a late run to the postseason. The Padres had won back-to-back games before getting shut out at Toronto on Thursday. San Diego has been inconsistent in scoring runs, as they are right in the middle of the pack in offensive runs scored.

Fernando Tatis leads the Padres with a .286 batting average, while Manny Machado is the leading home run hitter this season, with 18. Machado also has a team-high 54 runs batted in. The Padres are wrapping up this none game road trip and heading home to host the Pirates and Rangers next week.

Jackson Wolf is set to get the baseball on Saturday. Wolf will make his Major League Baseball debut. Wolf is a lefthander that will be promoted from Double-A for this game. The 24-year-old was the fourth-round pick of Detroit in 2021.

Tigers Up and Down Season Continues

Detroit lost their opening game of the road series at Kansas City 11-10 and then came back with two straight solid efforts from their pitching, winning 3-2 and 3-0. The Detroit pitching has improved in 2023, as they have a team ERA of 4.36. The starting pitching is still a struggle, with just 22 quality starts, but opponents are hitting just .241 against them.

The Tigers’ offense has been all over the place. One of the worst-hitting teams in Major League Baseball sees their top hitter with a .244 batting average. Zach McKinstry is that guy.

Spencer Torkelson is the top home run threat, with 14 home runs and 52 runs batted in. Detroit will welcome the Giants to town Monday for a single game before the Angels come for a three-game series to end the homestand.

Matt Manning is expected to pitch for the Detroit Tigers. The 25-year-old right-hander is 3-1 on the season with a 3.38 earned run average. Manning has made five starts this season and gone at least five innings in all of them. In his last start, he lasted 5.2, allowing four hits and two runs against the Royals.

San Diego Wins High Scoring Affair

With a rookie on the mound, the Padres are probably going to need some offense and their bullpen. Look for the bats to come through. Despite Manning’s decent season, San Diego is set to tee off on him Saturday. Bet the San Diego Padres -115 over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
