Shane’s Free Pick

This is the classic game of an elite pitcher going again elite offense, and that is going to be the key battle to watch here. Snell has been so lights out heading into this game, and he’s going to lockdown in this game. The Rangers are going to score only a run or two here total, and that isn’t going to be enough to get the job done. Back the Padres on the money line to cash here.
