Odds, picks & predictions
Point spread: Padres -1.5 (+160)
Run total: 7
Moneyline odds: Padres -135, Brewers +115
Moneyline pick: Padres -135
San Diego will have the pitching edge in this spot with Darvish on the hill with a decade of proven MLB success. With the Brewers' injuries, the lineups will be evenly matched, but we’ll side with the home team to win the final game of this series.
Player prop pick: Lorenzo Cain Under 0.5 hits (+125)
The Brewers centerfielder is going through a major slump in 2022, and this is an incredible value considering the payout you’d receive if he goes hitless against a strong starter like Darvish. Lorenzo Cain is hitting just .186 this season, and there’s a very good chance that number gets lower after Wednesday’s game.
