Philadelphia was one of the hottest teams in baseball until the past three days, as its win over Washington on Saturday marked its 15th win in 17 games. The Phillies proceeded to lose Sunday's series finale before dropping a pair of games at Texas. They will be looking to snap their three-game skid when they travel to San Diego for Thursday night's series opener. The Padres have been trending in the opposite direction, carrying a three-game winning streak into this game.
The Padres are -170 money-line favorites in the latest MLB odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Philadelphia is a +150 underdog. First pitch at Petco Park is set for 9:40 p.m. ET. The game is one of 10 on the MLB schedule for Thursday. (See up-to-date lines for every game on our MLB odds page.)
