The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park.

The Padres sit with a 48-36 and on Thursday night the pitching was strong giving up only one run and that was enough to secure the victory. For most of this series, it’s been the pitching that has been the difference giving up only 3.83 runs per game which is 5th best in the league. The Padres offense is ranked 15th in the league. Manny Machado has hit 14 home runs and driven in 50 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Giants who sit with a 41-40 record overall and heading into Friday’s game they had lost seven of their last eight games including game one of this series. The offense has been an issue for this team as of late and they need to find a way to score more runs here. The Giants overall are averaging 4.47 runs per game which is 7th best in the league. Joc Pederson has hit 17 home runs and driven in 41 RBIs.

On the mound for the Giants is Carlos Rodon who sits with a 7-5 record and an ERA of 2.87. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went five innings giving up five hits and four runs.

On the mound for the Padres is Yu Darvish who sits with a 7-4 record and an ERA of 3.53. In his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers, he went six innings giving up eight and five runs.

The Giants are 1-7 in their last eight games overall. The under is 6-1 in Darvish's last seven home starts. The under is 4-1 in the Padres last five games against a team with a winning record.

The Padres are the better team and the Giants bats are so ice cold right now, I don't trust them to find success.s Darvish has been inconsistent this year, but this is going to be one of his strong starts, and that will be the difference here. Back the Padres to secure the victory on the money line.
