San Diego Padres Vs San Francisco Giants MLB Betting Odds

San Diego (21-12) has been a surprisingly strong contender after going 75-87 last season. A 5-2 win over San Francisco (18-14) on Wednesday night gave the Padres a 2 1/2-game lead over the Giants in the NL West.

Strong play within the division has helped San Diego take an early lead. The Padres are 11-6 against NL West opponents - 5-0 versus the Giants - after going 33-39 last year. MLB Betting at SPORTSBETTING.COM sportsbook

“We’re just playing really good baseball right now, not just against the Giants,” said starter Clayton Richard(notes), who earned the win Wednesday. “When you play the way we’ve been playing, you’ll end up beating a lot of teams.”

The Giants will counter with Jonathan Sanchez(notes) (2-2, 3.00), who is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in his last two outings.

The left-hander didn’t receive a decision after allowing four runs and seven hits in seven innings of a 6-4 loss at New York on Friday night. Sanchez surrendered three home runs for the first time in 72 starts.

Sanchez is 2-3 with a 2.45 ERA in seven starts versus the Padres, getting one run or none to work with four times. He matched up with Latos last month and took the loss despite giving up one hit and one run while striking out 10 in seven innings. MLB Betting at SPORTSBETTING.COM sportsbook
