The San Diego Padres are still fighting for playoff positioning and probably should be favored at home, especially with Joe Musgrove on the hill. However, the Padres have been finding ways to lose all week and their offense has been quiet. Meanwhile, the San Francisco Giants are playing their best ball of the season with wins in 11 of their last 13 tries, and the offense has been on fire during this stretch. Assuming we get plus money with the Giants, I'll take a shot with the hot hand.
