SAN DIEGO -1½ +145 Oakland

4:10 PM EST. This is a paltry price on the Padres and we're on it. Blake Snell (LHP - SD) has not been his normal self this season, but a closer look shows that it is his road starts that are the problem. In the comfy confines of Petco Park, dude has been lights out. Despite the lack of success on the road, Snell is still flaming guys on the reg with 104 punchouts in just 80 1/3 innings. While his swing and miss rate is down from its elite levels of years past, Snell still sports a healthy 11.8%. That does include his road starts. To hammer again how much better Snell has been at home, opposing batting averages are a flimsy .167, his WHIP is 1.04 and he has 55 Ks in just 37.2 innings.

Sean Manaea (LHP - OAK) picked up the win last time out after giving up just one run on three hits over seven innings pitched. His 13 Ks was the exclamation point on that appearance and he's getting considerable attention from the market today. However, would you believe us if we told you that he'd regressed this season over last? His groundball rate is down almost 9% to 41.6%, while his strand rate is 21% higher at 81.5%. The latter shows that he's not paying for his uptick in walks as much as he probably should be, but a correction to that could always be around the corner.
