Padres at Giants picks and predictions


Padres 5 Giants 4


The Padres are 9-3 in the last 12 series meetings and are 6-2 in the last 8 games in San Francisco.

San Diego is 0-6 in extra innings and 5-12 in 1-run games. The Friars are deserving of a better record than where they stand. Also peg their schedule as being tougher than the Giants’ so far.

San Diego batters own a .968 OPS against Manaea and their platoon numbers favor at-bats against southpaws.


Run line/Against the spread

The Over has a lean and that makes the Run line favorite worth looking into. But we should want more return here PASS.


The Friars average just 3.70 RPG at home but on the road that figure jumps to 4.72.

A stiff breeze blowing outward is in the forecast for Wednesday’s game. With the way the Giants are hitting and the way the Padres have pounded Manaea in the past the lean is toward the Over.

BACK THE OVER 8 (-115).
