It is the first of a three-game series between the two teams. It is also the first bet on MLB game in a season-ending six-game road trip for the Diamondbacks.
MLB betting indicates that Jonathan Sanchez will get the start for the Giants. Sanchez is 7-12 on the season with a 4.25 ERA. The Diamondbacks could throw Doug Davis in this game although that is undecided. Sanchez dominated the Diamondbacks last week. Sanchez has won back-to-back starts this season only once. This is the third time in his career he will be facing the same team in two straight starts. Sanchez has not done well in this bet on MLB situation as the previous two times he faced a team back-to-back he allowed eight runs in 4 1/3 innings.
San Francisco is still technically in the Wild Card race but they have had so many chances in the past week or so to get closer. They probably won’t make the playoffs but it has been a good MLB betting season for the Giants. San Francisco is 7-3 in MLB betting in the last 10 games against the Diamondbacks. Five of the last seven MLB betting meetings between the two teams at San Francisco have gone under the total at the online sportsbook.
Most gamblers who bet on MLB action at the online sportsbook are going to look to San Francisco in this game. The Giants are a great home team while Arizona struggles on the road. The one thing to beware of though is that the Diamondbacks are actually about the same on the road as at home in MLB betting.
San Francisco has been excellent in MLB betting at home. It is due to a great pitching staff that is second in the league in fewest runs allowed as MLB betting stats show. The Giants have slipped though in MLB betting recently as their great pitching staff of Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Barry Zito have struggled. It used to be that Lincecum and Cain were sure wins in MLB betting but not anymore as the innings for both pitchers have piled up.
