LA Angels vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I’m on the Padres here. I simply think the Padres are the better team and the Angels just had little going right for them all year long and since Mike Trout went down, it’s all gotten worse. The Padres have been hit or miss and are a bit overrated in my personal opinion, but I still think the Angels are unbackable at this point. Give me the Padres here.
