San Diego Padres vs. Cleveland Guardians Prediction

The Cleveland Guardians and the San Diego Padres will clash from Petco Park for game one of this series on Tuesday night. The Guardians come into this game sitting at the top of the AL Central. This is a surprise to many as they entered the season not expected to be a playoff team. A lot of people thought that they would regress in the second half of the season, but that has not been the case. This is a team that has one star in Jose Ramirez and then a bunch of role players. Their pitching staff is similar as Shane Bieber is a star, but outside of him, they do not have many huge names. They have just found ways to win baseball games.

The Padres have the star names on their roster. Manny Machado, Juan Soto, and Fernando Tatis Jr. are some of the biggest names in baseball. They have a staff that includes multiple-time All-Stars in Joe Musgrove, Yu Darvish, and Mike Clevinger. This is a team that is expected to make noise in the postseason. They are in a tight race at the moment for a Wild Card spot and will look to get on a run in the month of September.

Tonight the Padres will send Mike Clevinger to the bump to face his former team. Clevinger has had a good season for the Padres and will look to beat his former team tonight. The Guardians will be sending Aaron Civale to the mound, who has struggled badly this season. 

I am backing San Diego on the moneyline tonight. This is my favorite play of the day as I believe they hold a significant advantage in the pitching department. Clevinger has made us a lot of money this season and should come out and control this Cleveland lineup tonight. This is a huge series for the Padres, who need to win these games desperately to stay in the playoffs. They need to lock in and play their best baseball at home. Civale has not been good at all this year, bringing an ERA of 5.63 into this game. Let’s cash in on the Padres tonight!
