Oakland Athletics vs San Diego Padres Prediction

Those who have followed along all year know I'm not excited to back the San Diego Padres, especially at prices this steep. The Padres have underachieved time and time again and right when you're ready to believe in them, they let you down. However, I have even less interest in backing the Athletics. The Padres are the better team, no matter how you slice it, and Michael King has been solid this season over a large sample size. Give me the Padres, and I'll lay the RL to shave down the juice.
