The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play game one of their Mexico City series this Saturday from Estadio Alfredo Harp Helu. 

Giants Betting Preview

San Francisco is 11-14 after losing to St. Louis. The Giants have responded to a four-game skid by winning five of their last six games, and they’ll look to keep rolling here in Mexico. The San Francisco offense is scoring 4.81 runs per game, while batting .240, with a .337 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.13 ERA, with a 1.28 WHIP. Thairo Estrada leads the Giants in hitting (.324) after recording a hit in six of the last seven games. J.D. Davis has recorded multiple hits in three of the last six games, and he’s first on the team in RBI (13).

Sean Manaea (0-1, 6.61 ERA, 18 Ks) will make the start for San Francisco. The eighth-year pitcher hasn't had much success in the Bay early on. Aside from an eight-strikeout performance versus Kansas City, he’s struggled in his last three outings, and he’ll look to turn things around against his former squad.

Padres Betting Preview

San Diego dropped to 13-14 after falling to Chicago. The Padres have turned things around after a slow start, winning five of their last eight games. The San Diego offense is scoring 4.31 runs per game, while batting .216, with a .301 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.34 ERA, with a 1.36 WHIP. Xander Bogaerts leads the Pads in batting (.330) and hits (17). Matt Carpenter is now first on the team in RBI (13) after producing five runs in Sunday’s win over Arizona.

Joe Musgrove (1-0, 5.40 ERA, 6 K) is set to start for San Diego. The former All-Star pitcher had a solid season debut versus Arizona, striking out six over five full innings, and earning the winning decision. 

San Francisco vs San Diego Trends

San Francisco is 12-13 against the spread this season, with a 15-9-1 O/U record. San Diego is 13-12 ATS this year, with a 10-14-1 over/under record.

Corey's Free Pick

The Mexico City series should generate some good baseball and pave the way for potentially more. Both California squads have turned things around as of late, and are climbing back into the NL West standings. San Diego has a pair of advantages on the mound, with Joe Musgrove set to start, and then facing a pitcher they know very well in Sean Manaea. I like leaning on the Padres here, as a win could put them back over .500.
