San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
I look for the Giants to keep on rolling in this series. I have a very hard time seeing them slow down. Also, I have not been impressed with how the Padres have been playing at all.
San Francisco is the better team and I feel they will put that on display in this one. I do not trust San Diego that much at this point.
I feel that the Giants will get to Velasquez early and often.
I will take the Giants as slight, road favorites.
