How They Match Up:

The Padres have averaged 7.9 hits per game to date this season, less than the Giants hitters have managed (9.1 per nine innings).

The Giants were a 6-4 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Nationals. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at -122 on the moneyline, while the total score (10) was good news for OVER bettors. San Francisco looks to rebound from a loss to the Nationals, who beat them 6-4 on Wednesday behind a start from Stephen Strasburg at AT&T Park.

In their last action, San Diego was a 6-0 loser on the road against the Braves. Bettors on Atlanta at -190 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
