It's a marquee matchup in the NL West tonight when the Giants and Padres meet for the 11th time this season. Jake Arrieta gets the start for the Padres. Anthony DeSclafani counters for the Giants. Game odds via PointsBet

San Diego Padres (+150) vs. San Francisco Giants (-180) Total: 9 

The Giants put an eight-game winning streak on the line tonight at home vs. the Padres. Tonight will be these teams 11th meeting of the season. After tonight, they still have eight games remaining vs. each other. The Giants hold a 6-4 series lead. 

Tonight’s Padres starter, Jake Arrieta, has pitched 8.1 innings for San Diego this season. He has allowed eight earned runs in those eight innings. This season, between the Cubs and Padres, Arrieta is 6-15 on the Money Line. He is also 13-6-2 to the Under.

The Giants' 94 wins are easily the most in baseball; they are the only team to have clinched a playoff berth. They have a 2.5 game lead over the Dodgers and a 19.5 game lead over the Padres. This season, as home favorites, the Giants are 36-14 (72%) on the Money Line. Giants starter Anthony DeSclafani has given up seven earned runs in 16 innings pitched vs. the Padres this season. 

The Total in this game opened up on PointsBet at 8.5. Just about every shop has moved that number up to nine but there are still a few out there at 8.5. The Under is the play for me in this game tonight. When the Giants are home favorites of -180 or less, the Under has cashed 57% of the time. The Padres are an attractive option on the Money Line at +150, but this season NL West road underdogs are 30-63 on the Money Line vs. their division rivals. 

Edge Finder Tip: The Padres are 5-2 ATS vs. division opponents as road underdogs. 

EDGE: Under 9 (-110)
