It is also the end of a seven-game road trip for the Astros. The Giants have been solid at home this season but Houston has been a decent MLB bet on the road so this game should be interesting.
MLB betting trends slightly favor the Giants on Sunday. Before this three game series began, the Giants had won six of the last ten home games against Houston as MLB betting stats show. Last year though the Astros won three of the four games in San Francisco as sports betting results showed.
This sports betting series is really interesting because both teams are tough to figure out. The Astros have been competitive on the road but they have struggled at home while the Giants have been great at home and rotten on the road in MLB betting. Houston has been surprisingly good in terms of pitching as they are just outside the Top 10 as MLB bet numbers show but their hitting has been weak. It was supposed to be just the opposite this season so gamblers who make a MLB bet have been surprised.
San Francisco has been winning with a pitching staff that is in the Top 5 in the league as MLB betting numbers show. The offense is abysmal but somehow the Giants score enough runs to win games in MLB betting. You could make a case that the Giants are the most surprising team in the league this season in terms of MLB betting. With Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Randy Johnson, the Giants have a very solid trio at the top of their rotation.
The MLB betting total trends slightly leans to this game going over. There is not much either way on this MLB betting total but before this series began, betting the over had been slightly profitable. That was the case last year when these two teams met in San Francisco in a four game online sports betting series. Two of the games went over the MLB betting total, one went under and the other was a push.
