San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants

If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Friday when the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants meet at AT&T Park.

The Padres will pin their hopes on the pitching of righthander Edinson Volquez in this game. Volquez has a 0-3 record and a 11.68 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Giants will be Madison Bumgarner. The lefthander has a 1.77 ERA to go along with a 3-0 record this season.

San Diego won its last outing, a 7-2 result against the Dodgers on April 17. Bettors who backed the Padres at +230 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Giants were a 7-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Brewers. That made winners of bettors who got Milwaukee at -102 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for OVER bettors.
