The San Francisco Giants (16-11) and San Diego Padres (16-12) play the finale of a three-game set Sunday at Petco Park with a 4:10 p.m. ET first pitch. Let’s analyze BetMGM Sportsbook‘s lines around the Giants vs. Padres odds with MLB picks and predictions.

RHP Kevin Gausman is the projected starting pitcher for the Giants. He is 1-0 with a 2.14 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, 9.1 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 over 33 2/3 IP through five starts.

Gausman allowed just 1 earned run on 2 hits and 1 walk with 11 strikeouts over a season-high 8 innings last Saturday in a no-decision against the Miami Marlins. He also allowed just 1 run on 5 hits and 1 walk through 7 innings in a no-decision April 7 in San Diego.

RHP Joe Musgrove is the projected starting pitcher for the Padres. He is 2-2 with a 1.24 ERA, 0.66 WHIP, 12.7 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 over 29 IP spanning 5 starts.

Musgrove allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits with 2 walks over 3 innings of a no-decision last time out at Dodger Stadium last Sunday.

Money line (ML)

While the odds were off the board at the time of publishing, the Padres are looking to complete the sweep, and they’re a good bet to do so.

San Diego has rattled off three consecutive wins, with an average of 7.0 runs per game while allowing just 2.33 runs per outing. The Giants offense dried up in the first two contests of this series.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

The Padres are worth a small-unit play to win by 2-plus runs with Musgrove on the bump.

The Giants lost three of their last four games, and three of their last four losses were by 2 or more runs.

Over/Under (O/U)

The Over will be the lean, as it is 4-1 in San Francisco’s past five outings and 2-2-1 in Gausman’s five starts to date.

The Over is 6-2 across the past eight games for San Diego, too. While the Under is 4-1 in Musgrove’s five starts overall, the Over hit in his most recent showing.
