MLB Free Pick: Take the under. According to latest MLB trends, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and 6-1-1 in the Giants' last eight games as a road favorite. The under is also 6-1 in the Padres' last seven home games as a home underdog, 6-1 in their last seven home games versus a right-handed starter and 13-3 in their last 16 games versus a right-handed starter. San Diego's lineup is brutal and while San Francisco's offense was dangerous for the first two months of the season, it's been atrocious since that point. Even with the total set at 6.5, the under should cover without much challenge.
