Starting pitchers

Blake Snell vs. Alex Wood

Blake Snell (3-6, 3.48 ERA) will make his 15th start of thes eason and has been excellent in his last five outings. He allowed just two runs over his last five starts, spanning 30 innings of work.

Alex Wood (2-1, 4.11 ERA) will make his 10th appearance and ninth start of the season. He’s coming off a strong outing where he threw five scoreless innings in a 15-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Over/Under pick

There’s a lot to like about the under in this spot especially with how dominant Snell has been over this recent stretch. The Giants are inside the top 10 in runs per game, slugging percentage and OBP, but let’s keep riding Snell to keep this total low.

Pick: Under 8.5

Moneyline pick

If we’re going with Snell to be doing the heavy lifting for the under to hit, you better believe I’ll side with San Diego to put an end to this San Francisco winning streak. The Padres scored five or fewer runs in six straight games, but they won’t need many runs to pick up a win.

Pick: Padres
