Oakland Athletics vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 of the better teams in baseball.
Oakland is a very good team, but I give the edge to San Francisco.
This has the chance to be a good pitching matchup. I think Manaea is the better arm, but I trust Cueto more in this one because he is at home. I see both guys pitching well, but the Giants doing enough to win.
I like the Giants as short home dogs.
