San Diego Padres vs San Francisco Giants 8/31/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The San Diego Padres will go against the San Francisco Giants in MLB action in Oracle Park, CA, on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at 3:45 PM ET.


Although San Diego did not experience the season it had hoped for thus far, there is still time for the Padres to qualify for the postseason and see what happens from there.


Through their first 27 matches, they had a very mediocre August, going 14-13. Early last week, San Diego dropped two straight games at home to Cleveland before recovering to win the series in Kansas City.


With their victory over San Francisco on Monday, the Padres continued to gain ground. They are competing in the major league’s most imbalanced division, with the Dodgers currently leading by 19.5 games.


In the battle for the last National League Wild Card position, San Diego leads Milwaukee by 1.5 games.


On Wednesday, San Diego’s right-handed starter Joe Musgrove will take the mound. Last Friday against Kansas City, he pitched only 3.2 innings and gave up five runs (two of them earned) on eight hits and one walk.


Before that start, Musgrove produced three consecutive strong starts, and he has a respectable 2.96 ERA so far this year.


  • The total went UNDER in 6 of San Diego’s last 9 matches. 
  • The San Diego Padres are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against San Francisco. 
  • San Diego is 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches on the road.

San Diego Padres vs San Francisco Giants Predictions 8/31/2022


San Francisco’s incredible 2021 campaign was a complete failure. Going into the All-Star break, the Giants were five games over.500, but after losing seven straight games to start the second half of the season, they are currently in another slump.


In the middle of August, they defeated Pittsburgh and Arizona five times in a row before going 2-9 in their last 11 games.


San Francisco’s chances of making the playoffs are rapidly dwindling after being swept in a three-game series against Minnesota over the weekend. For the last NL Wild Card slot, the Giants trail the Padres by 8.5 games.


Alex Wood, a left-handed pitcher, will get the nod to start for San Francisco. In three innings last week against Minnesota, he struck out four despite giving up 8 earned runs on six hits and no walks.


In three of his five outings this month, Wood gave up six runs or more, giving him an ERA of 8.53. He has an overall record of 8-11 and a 5.00 ERA this year.


  • The Giants are 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of San Francisco’s last 6 matches against San Diego. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of San Francisco’s last 6 matches at home.

San Diego Padres vs San Francisco Giants. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. Wood is not walking batters, but he is allowing a lot of hard contacts so this is not a favorable situation for him. He faced a lineup that included Soto, Bell, and Machado and gave up at least six runs in three of his previous five outings.


Musgrove will have all the help he needs to win this match if the Padres can score a couple of runs in the early innings.


Given that the Giants are currently all but eliminated from the race for the NL playoffs, San Diego ought to be more motivated than San Francisco.


In the last 11 games between these clubs, San Diego won eight of them, and it is certain to add another victory on Wednesday. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
