San Francisco Giants
The Giants have been one of the hottest teams in baseball since the all-star break and have won 8 of their last 10 to at least give themselves a fighting chance at the NL wild card. Nonetheless, San Francisco finds themselves as +126 underdogs as they kick off a 3-game series with San Diego. The Giants have actually won 5 in a row vs. the Padres.
So why are the Giants underdogs vs. a San Diego team that has dropped 7 of their last 10? Jeff Samardzija gets the start for San Francisco and he has pitched well at Petco Park. The SF starter has a 2.42 career ERA at Petco Park and has allowed 2ER or less in 3 of his last 4 starts overall.
San Diego Padres
San Diego is a really tough team to back at -148 in this one considering they’ve lost 5 of the last 7 and were shut out 0-4 by the Mets on Thursday. Friday night’s series opener will be the Padres first at Petco in the last 9 games but the team is just 23-27 at home on the year. San Diego has scored just 2ER in 13 innings vs. Samardzija in two starts on the season. Friday’s O/U is 8.5.
Joey Lucchessi looked very poor in his last outing vs. the Cubs, allowing 10 hits and 6ER over 4.1 IP at Wrigley Field. The right-hander is back at Petco on Friday night though where he has a 2.83 ERA compared to 6+ on the road. Lucchessi has started 3 times vs. San Francisco this season, going 1-2 with a 5.28 ERA. Why are the Padres such big favorites in this one again?

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Even if the Giants are in a possible trap spot from oddsmakers in this one there’s simply no reason to lay the -148 on a slumping Padres squad. SF has won 8 of 10, and are worth the “risk” at +137 considering they’ve won 5 straight vs. the Padres and are playing great ball overall right now.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Giants +137
Another play would be the ‘under’ 8.5 but you have to like SF in this spot.
