The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres each had disappointing opening series to start the season. They will play their second game of the series Saturday night at Petco Park.
San Francisco Giants
For a team that feels they can contend for a World Series title, they couldn’t have had a worse start to their season.
They only could get one win against the Arizona Diamondbacks in their opening series, but they hope to turn things around against the Padres.
The biggest weakness of the Giants last year was the bullpen, and that has already hurt them this season. In their first start game of the season they got a great start from Bumgarner only to have the bullpen blow it, and them to lose.
If they want to have success this season, they need to turn that around quick.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have the lowest payroll in the MLB at 74 million dollars.
To compare their opponents the Giants have payroll of 172 million. With that low of payroll fans have to have really low expectations from their team, which I think most Padres fans have accepted.
To win this game they need a near perfect game from Jhoulys Chacin. Everyone knows Bumgarner isn’t going to give up many runs and they need him to not give up many either.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
I think everyone knows who’s going to win this game. Bumgarner is just too much of a weapon and he will shut down the Padres. But the payout for the Giants isn’t good so lets focus on over/under
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 7
I actually think the Padres will pitch decent in this game, but it won’t be enough. The Giants will win in a game that covers the under.
