|Under 7 (-113) @ Betamerica|
This is a 10* TOP NATIONAL LEAGUE TOTAL on the UNDER Giants/Padres.
Both teams have been playing to some higher-scoring affairs of late, but I think that trend changes on Friday night.
San Fran has seen the total go OVER in three straight, while San Diego has seen the total go OVER in five of its last six, including two in a row, including a 12-3 blowout win in Arizona last time out.
But with two competent starting pitchers going head-to-head to open up this series, we look for this opening game to fall UNDER at the end of the night.
The Giants go with Logan Webb, who is 1-1 with a 4.03 ERA. Webb is coming off the best start of his life likely, going seven scoreless vs. a dangerous Miami Marlins line-up. He walked three and struck out eight.
The rookie goes up against Padres' veteran Yu Darvish, who is 2-1 with a 2.27 ERA. Darvish also owns a miniscule 0.85 ERA.
Finally note that the Giants have seen the total go UNDER in eight of their last 12 after playing to three or more straight OVERS in a row.
All signs point to these starting pitchers battling deep, which we expect will help in driving this total UNDER once it's all said and done.
Good luck, NP
