San Diego is 10-4 in their last 14 road games and 19-9 in their last 28 games. The under is 10-3-1 in San Diego’s last 14 Friday games. San Francisco is 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 19-7 in their last 26 Friday games. The over is 8-2 in San Francisco’s last 10 home games. The over is 13-5 in these two teams last 18 head to head meetings.

Junis comes into this game pitching very well for the Giants and has only allowed four runs in his last four starts. For the Padres, Manaea has allowed three runs in each of his last three starts and the Padres have lost each of his last four starts. This should be a low scoring game and I am taking the under here.
