San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Pablo Sandoval launched a go-ahead solo homer to propel the Giants to a 2-1 victory over the Padres in extra-innings on Friday. Sandoval clobbered a towering fly ball to left field, which barely eluded a leaping attempt by Padres left fielder Wil Myers, in the top of the 11th inning. It was his second game-winning blast for the Giants this week. The 32-year-old veteran entered the contest as a pinch-hitter and doubled in his first at-bat in the ninth. San Francisco's improbably playoff push continues. They're 17-4 overall since July 1 and have won 12 of 15 games since the All-Star break. Unreal.

San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin

Austin Hedges swatted a solo homer in the Padres' loss to the Giants in extra-innings on Friday. Hedges crushed a game-tying homer -- his eighth long ball of the season -- to left field off Giants starter Jeff Samardzija in the fifth inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats in this one. The 26-year-old backstop has been a complete non-factor offensively, hitting a paltry .195/.260/.344 across 235 plate appearances. He can be safely ignored in all standard mixed leagues.

MLB Betting Trends

San Francisco

The Giants have now won 10 of their last 11 games on the road.

San Diego

With their 2-1 loss last night, the Padres are now just 3-10 in their last 13 games overall.

Prediction:

Shaun Anderson hasn’t pitched great this season but the Giants are a perfect 5-0 in his last five starts and are 4-0 in his last four outings coming off four days of rest. The Giants have also won 13 of their last 16 road games versus a right-handed starter and have won 20 of their last 27 games overall. The Padres, meanwhile, have dropped eight straight at Petco Park and six straight against the Giants. Might as well take the team that is rolling, especially as a moneyline underdog.

The Pick: San Francisco Giants +120
