San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants Betting Prediction

The Padres send LHP Blake Snell to the mound against San Francisco’s 14th-ranked scoring offense on Tuesday night (4.42 RSPG), who’s arguably having the worst campaign of his seven-year career sitting 5-7 with a 4.24 ERA across 17 starts this season (1.26 WHIP), despite posting a pair of solid performances against the Giants (11.2 IP, 2 ER).

On the flip side, the Giants send RHP Logan Webb to the hill against San Diego’s 13th-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.43 RSPG), who’s having an excellent campaign for San Francisco sitting 11-7 with a 3.33 ERA in 26 appearances this season (1.19 WHIP), who’s already 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA across a pair of starts against the Padres (16 IP, 0.69 WHIP).

I’ll take the under here, as Webb has tossed eight innings or more and allowed one run or less in both of his outings against San Diego this season (1.13 ERA, 0.69 WHIP); setting the stage for a relatively low-scoring battle against the Padres and Snell, who’s 1-1 with a 1.54 ERA across a pair of starts against San Francisco (1.11 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Padres 3, Giants 2
Best Bet: Under 7.5 (-115)

San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants – Current Form

San Diego has played solid recently, considering the Padres have won two of their last three series against the Royals and Nationals, while also dropping a two-game set against Cleveland wedged between those matchups; resulting in a solid 5-3 ledger across that window.

However, San Fransico has struggled miserably as of late, highlighted by the Giants either losing or dropping four straight series against the Twins, Tigers, Rockies, and Diamondbacks; resulting in a lackluster 4-9 mark across that stretch.
