Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play the 2nd game of the series at the Oracle Park on Tuesday night. The Padres took the win 6-5 in the first game of the series and are 9-5 vs Giants so far this season. Brandon Drury hit a two-run homer in the first inning and later added an RBI single, leading Clevinger and the Padres to the victory.

BETTING TRENDS

San Diego are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games against San Francisco.

San Diego are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against San Francisco.

San Francisco are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the National League.

San Francisco are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of San Francisco's last 7 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Giants have now lost 5 games in a row and 5 of their last 7 games at home vs Padres. For this game they'll send Logan Webb to the mound who has struggled lately allowing 9 runs in his last 9.1 innings pitched and the Giants have lost in 5 of his last 7 starts but he has dominated the Padres this season. The Padres offense continue to stay hot as they have scored 7.3 runs per game in the last 4. For this game they'll send Yu Darvish to the mound who hasn't been that great lately allowing at least 3 runs in each of his last 3 starts. Both pitchers have struggled in their last outings and with the offenses hot I think the total has been set too low. Take the over. 

PICK: Over 7.5 (-110)
