Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play the 3rd game of the series at the Petco Park on Wednesday. The Padres woke up and beat the Giants 7-4 in the second game of the series. Manny Machado hit a game-ending, three-run homer and Soto connected for his first long ball with the Padres.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 54-56 record and have won 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.57 runs per game and they're batting for .235 AVG, 471 runs scored in 798 hits and 118 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Milwaukee Brewers. Joc Pederson leads the team with 17 home runs and 44 RBI. Thairo Estrada is batting for an average of .262.

Defensively they are allowing 4.37 runs per game and rank #18 in the league. Carlos Rodon leads the pitching staff with a 2.95 ERA, 161 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Jakob Junis (4-3, 3.05 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 3rd game of the series. Junis allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five across 3.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Dodgers. He is 1-0 with an ERA of 4.85 and 8 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Padres in his career.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 62-51 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.37 runs per game and they're batting for .240 AVG, have 449 runs scored in 835 hits and 89 home runs, ranking #15 in offense in the league behind the Houston Astros. Manny Machado is leading the team with 19 home runs and 60 RBI and a batting average of .289.

Defensively they are allowing 4.08 runs per game and rank #9 in the league. Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 3.00 ERA, 120 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:  Sean Manaea (6-6, 4.74 ERA)

Manaea will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Padres. Manaea took the loss during Friday's 8-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing eight runs on 10 hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in four innings. He has a record of 2-3 with an ERA of 3.12 and 37 strikeouts in 9 appearances versus the Giants in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of San Francisco's last 10 games when playing on the road against San Diego.

San Diego Padres are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games at home.

San Diego are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.

Prediction

The Padres finally bounced back and get a win after 5 straight losses scoring 7 runs to win the game. For this game they'll send Sean Manaea to the mound who was pounded in his last start with 8 runs vs Dodgers and allowed 4 runs the last time he faced the Giants. Jakob Junis will start for the Giants who has been decent this season but also allowed 4 runs the last time he faced the Padres. Now that the Padres offense woke up I think they'll get to this game with more confidence but I don't really trust Manaea so I'll go with the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
