The 3 – 2 Giants will be sending lefty Madison Bumgarner to the mound today after coming off a surprising 0-1 loss against the 2-3 Padres. James Shields will be starting for San Diego today. Last season Bumgarner had only one start against the Padres giving up 4 earned runs in the 5th inning to ensure a victory for San Diego in that game although this year he is 1-0 after clinching a victory over Arizona holding the team to only 1 run in 7 innings. San Diego is ranked 18th in offense averaging 3 runs per game while the Giants defense is holding their opponents to an average of 2.8 hits allowed per game.

The offense has dried up for both teams with a combined total of 2 runs scored in the first two games of this 4-game set. On paper it’s not likely to get better tonight with the 2014 World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Giants with the Padres countering with James Shields. This will be the second start of the season for both starters who are coming off of good performances in their season openers. The lines maker has hung a 6 on the board for this game and while an UNDER play would be logical, I’m going to take a shot on the home team here. It’s been only 4 games, but I feel that San Diego has looked more prepared this season and the value is certainly there with them moving to +101. Bumgarner has lost the last two against the Padres and has been only adequate in San Diego in recent starts allowing 12 runs in 23 innings covering four starts.
