Felix hasn't really looked like himself and I doubt he will ever be "king" felix again. But I'm seeing a strike out total of 4 with +100 over and I love that. For starters he gets to face Paddack so that hsould be a strike out and the padres only have two left handed bats in the lineup today. His strike out rates are low and the ump ranks out as a 2 out of 5 so that's not really in his favor. yet projections are showing him hovering around 6k's tonight so I'll take over 4 at +100. I see that betonline is at 4.5 +110 and that's alright and I don't mind it either, but I much rather prefer the over 4 strike outs so we have the push option at four but I'm really hoping he gets to five. Tatis and myers both strike out 30% of the time and Reyes and Renfroe strike out 27% of the time. Then Jejia is sitting at 31% and Paddock so far has struck out 4 times in 6 plate appearances.

King Felix hasn't been great on the road and hasn't had good starts this year, neither has Chris Paddack. I think the over will hit on this one as both teams bats have been hot these past few games.

Understandable odds considering Hernandez continues to show he's a shell of himself. Seattle has best offense in the league and they have been scoring in buckets. Paddack is tough but they will get their 3-5 runs tonight and I suspect Padres will get to Hernandez. OVER 8.5 is where I'm leaning tonight

this is a old vs young match up and I have to side with the future of this league here. Paddack has great stuff and outside of one bad start, he's looked really solid. King Felix has just been "Felix" for a while now and the only real issue I'm seeing here is the fact that SD doesn't have many lefties to throw his way. He really struggles against left handed batters and the Padres will most likely only have Hosmer in the lineup. Still, I just don't trust Felix at this stage of his career and his velocity is way down from years past and this Padres lineup has a lot of power. On the other side Paddock has been striking out batters and limiting hard contact making him hard to hit so I'll take the Padres all day even though I hate big favorites50%

Fansided: Seattle Mariners Takeaways: How Felix Hernandez Dominated the Padres
Now while most of Mariners fandom has been quick to give Felix more credit than he deserved in previous starts, we have been throwing cold water on the idea all year. Fans were so desperate to give Felix a gold star, they overlooked pretty obviously mediocre starts against the Angels.
But on Wednesday in San Diego, "King Felix" was actually good. And not " Mariners fans want to believe he was so let's say he was" good. He was really good. But how did he do it against a good lineup just 1 start from a mediocre outing against the pathetic Los Angeles Angels lineup?
The News Tribune: Felix pitches great but Padres' pitcher Paddack is better as San Diego completes sweep of Mariners
Padres rookie Chris Paddack wasn't feeling well and walked Mariners leadoff batter Mitch Haniger on four straight fastballs, none of which was faster than 91 mph.
"Uh-oh," manager Andy Green thought. "It didn't look good."
Five batters later, Paddack was onto something special. He got out of a bases-loaded jam and went on to retire his final 19 batters, shutting down baseball's highest-scoring offense and outdueling Felix Hernandez in a brilliant performance for his first major league win, 1-0 on Wednesday.
"Long time coming," said the 23-year-old Paddack, who missed all off 2017 after having Tommy John surgery.

SignOnSanDiego.com: Padres start early, beat Mariners in first interleague game of year
With a bunt single, a double and a home run, the Padres accomplished in a span of seven pitches Tuesday night the jump-start they had been seeking all season.
It led to a 6-3 victory over the Mariners in the opener of a two-game series at Petco Park.
The first of Franmil Reyes' two homers gave the Padres a 3-0 lead in the second inning, the biggest lead they'd had that early in any of their 24 games.
The Mariners scored twice off Nick Margevicius in the fifth inning, his last one of the night.
A solo homer by Reyes and two-run shot by Austin Hedges made it 6-2 in the sixth.

SAN DIEGO -- Austin Hedges' unusual two-run home run came with an assist from Mariners center fielder Mallex Smith.
Hedges' fly ball to deep center field bounced out of Smith's glove and over the fence, Franmil Reyes homered twice and had three RBIs, and the San Diego Padres beat AL West-leading Seattle 6-3 Tuesday night.
Hedges, the catcher, also had a brilliant defensive play for the Padres, who have won five straight in the interleague series.
Gaslamp Ball: Franmil Reyes, Austin Hedges lead Padres to 6-3 win over Mariners
Franmil Reyes is locked in lately, and is a threat to knock a baseball over the outfield wall every time he steps up to the plate these days. Case in point, when he came up in the 2nd inning after a run-scoring double by Eric Hosmer...
Later, Franmil decided that 3 runs wasn't going to be enough for the Padres, and added a solo shot...
Austin Hedges has been hitting better lately, but it's his glove that will keep him in the starting catcher spot, and he got a chance to show it off in this one.
