San Diego Padres vs San Francisco Giants Betting Pick
Why bet the Giants to win +155?
📣 Kevin Gausman (R) vs. Blake Snell (L)
✅ We’re going to go with the underdog San Francisco Giants here as they face off with southpaw Blake Snell. The Giants hit left-handed pitching better than they do righties, as six of their first seven batters hit from the right side. At first glance, the Padres seem like the better team, and they are, but this is just one game and the number on the Giants is friendly.
✅ Kevin Gausman looked phenomenal in his first start of the season, and the Padres are a very right-handed heavy team. Blake Snell, on the other hand, is a guy that must be handled with fragility. Snell has been injured a ton and the Padres are far more worried about later in the season. If he runs into trouble, the Padres will have no hesitance in pulling him early to preserve the arm. This game is more important to the Giants.
✅ I am always a fan of betting the underdog in baseball when I think it’s a reasonable wager. Kevin Gausman is just as good of a pitcher right now as Blake Snell and I trust his arm a bit more. The San Diego Padres aren’t the same lineup with Fernando Tatis Jr. out of the mix, either, and it will take some time to adjust. Give me the Giants to win this game at plus money.
✅ Giants are 8-3 in their last 11 games vs. a left-handed starter.
✅ Padres are 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

San Francisco Giants vs San Diego Padres Run Line Predictions
Let’s dive right into the San Francisco Giants vs San Diego Padres run line predictions. When one team is a heavy favorite, the run line is a bet worth considering. This is a wager unique to baseball, so don’t be worried if you’re unaware of the run line wager. This type of wager involves a type of spread and it is almost always (-1.5) and (+1.5).
To translate, let’s say the San Diego Padres are (-1.5) favorites. A run line wager on them would require a win by two runs or more. In turn, the Giants would be (+1.5) underdogs and a wager on them would require either a victory by any margin or a loss by a single run.

San Diego Padres vs SF Giants Over/Under Betting
When you don’t have a strong feeling on which team will win the game, you can choose to wager on the over/under. Betting the over/under comes down to picking whether the Padres and Giants will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. That number is set by the sportsbooks and will adjust as action comes in heavier on one side.
For example, let’s say the Giants vs Padres over/under is set to 9.5 runs. A wager on the over would call for 10 or more total runs scored while a bet on the under would require nine or fewer total runs scored. This is the second-most popular way to wager on NBA games and a very fun way to wager.

Giants vs Padres Moneyline Predictions
The moneyline is a very popular wager in the United States for all sports, so you’re likely more than familiar with how it works. In baseball, it all depends on the odds for how popular the wager is for that particular game. Let’s dive into an example of how a moneyline wager would work here.
Staying consistent with above, we will say the Padres are (-210 favorites). In that case, it would take $210 to win $100 back. In turn, the Giants would be around (+190) underdogs, which means a $100 successful bet would return $190. This can be a bit confusing, but is very easy to read once you know what you’re looking at.
