The Padres are a -140 favorite for the rubber match and have won two in a row when Darvish is pitching.

Padres vs Tigers Probable Pitchers

Darvish is in the midst of a very decent campaign for San Diego. In 18 starts, he’s 9-4 with a 3.28 ERA, striking out 109 in 115.1 innings of work and walking just 23 batters. He’s also given the Padres lots of longevity lately, tossing seven innings in each of his last three starts. In the process, the righty has allowed just five earned during that span.

On July 22nd against the Mets, Darvish surrendered a mere one run on four hits while striking out nine. In seven career outings vs Detroit, the 35-year-old owns a 7-0 record and 3.47 ERA. Certainly a good sign ahead of Wednesday.

Skubal has been one of Detroit’s lone bright spots this season and he could potentially be on the move at the trade deadline. Nonetheless, he’s excelled all year long, making 19 starts and posting a 3.88 ERA. His 7-8 record comes down to the lack of run support, but Skubal has proven to be a strikeout machine, sitting down 111 hitters in 106.2 innings of work.

He did struggle in June and into July as well, but the southpaw shoved last week, tossing six frames and allowing zero earned runs. Skubal only gave up two hits, too, and struck out nine A’s hitters. He’s never faced the Padres, though.

Padres Chasing LA in NL West

San Diego has been without their superstar Fernando Tatis Jr all season and that’s definitely hindered their ability to compete with the Dodgers. As of Tuesday, the Padres remain 11.5 games behind them in the NL West but do sit in a Wild Card spot at the moment. That gap is reflected in the MLB Division odds as well.

Prior to Tuesday’s contest, San Diego is just 4-6 in their last 10 games as well and has not been playing very well since the All-Star Break, despite the stellar play of Manny Machado, who is +550 in NL MVP odds.

Tigers Playing Better at Home

Not much is going right for Detroit in 2022. They have arguably the worst offense in baseball and their pitching staff isn’t anything to write home about, either. However, the Tigers tend to play a lot better at Comerica with a 24-26 as opposed to 15-32 away.

The bad news? After Wednesday’s finale, Detroit heads on the road for a pair of three-game sets against the Blue Jays and Twins, respectively.

Padres vs Tigers Pick

It’s tough to look past Darvish’s flawless record against Detroit. Yes, Skubal bounced back with a quality outing last time out, but I do think the Padres have the edge here with one of their best starters on the bump.

Best Bet: Padres -140
