San Diego is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games and 14-27 in their last 41 games against the NL West. The over is 21-8 in San Diego’s last 29 Sunday games. San Francisco is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 13-4 in their last 17 Sunday games. The over is 4-1 in San Francisco’s last 5 Sunday games. The over is 14-6 in these two teams last 20 head to head meetings.

These two NL West rivals go head to head on Sunday with 3.5 games separating them in the standings. The Padres have won five of their last six games, while the Giants have lost three straight. This pitching matchup should be entertaining, but Gore has been the better pitcher this season. I like the value with the Padres on the road here and expect another dominant performance from Gore.
