Jurickson Profar leads the Padres with 76 hits along with a .325 batting average and 12 doubles with 10 homers and 43 RBIs.

San Diego Padres vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

I’m on the under here. I’m leaning towards the A’s and the plus money for a side, but ultimately I think the under is the better play here. I don’t trust the Padres for much of anything and at this price no less, and Oakland has been struggling to plate 3 or more runs more often than not. This just feels like an ugly first to 3 wins kind of game to me, so give me the under.
