BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco Giants are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of San Francisco's last 5 games when playing on the road against San Diego.

The total has gone OVER in 14 of San Diego's last 20 games against San Francisco.

San Diego Padres are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

These two teams have been struggling lately. The Giants were on a 6 game losing streak before beating the Dbacks 7-5 in the last game of the series. The Padres have lost 8 of their last 10 games and are struggling offensively. Joe Musgrove will start for the Padres and he dominated the Giants in the last meeting holding them to zero runs across 8 innings. Logan Webb will start for the Giants and he also dominated the Padres the last time he faced them allowing only 1 run in 8 innings pitched. This will be a great pitching duel so expect a low scoring game. Take the under.

PICK: Under 6.5 (-110)
