San Diego at San Francisco

3 units on San Francisco -1.5 runs +171 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Giants have been a hot team as they have now won six of their last seven games. The pitching has been outstanding as they have allowed just 18 runs or just over 2.5 runs per game. The Padres are now on a six-game losing streak, and they just can't produce enough runs to win games. Yesterday's three-run performance now leaves the Padres having scored three runs or less 72 times on the season. Josh Banks has pitched very poorly of late as indicated by his 10.80 ERA over his last three starts. He has totally lost his control, as he has walked 13 in his last eight innings of work. Overall the Padres are now just 2-10 in his last 12 starts. We will back the Giants on the runline here.
