This is the second game of a three-game Interleague series between the two teams. Recent history in MLB betting odds tell us that the Giants could be the way to go in this game.
MLB odds show that the Giants had won 8 of the last 10 games against the Rangers before this series began. Since this is an Interleague matchup, the teams don’t play that often. They met three years ago in San Francisco and the Giants won all three games versus the MLB betting odds. It is also interesting to note that all three of those games went under the MLB odds sports book total. You then have to go back to 2001 for the last time the teams played a series in MLB betting odds and that was in Texas and even then the Giants won two of three.
Texas continues to lead the American League West. The Rangers have been about .500 on the road this season versus the MLB betting odds and that makes Texas worth considering. Texas has been in the Top 10 in runs scored this season as MLB odds stats. The Rangers have struggled with their pitching staff but that is nothing new. Texas always struggles with runs allowed. The difference this season in MLB odds is that they do have some starters that can be effective including Kevin Millwood and Scott Feldman. When Texas gets any kind of pitching they can be dangerous versus the MLB odds at the online sportsbook.
San Francisco has been excellent this season at home versus the MLB odds at the sports book. That is one reason they are around the .500 mark overall because they have been awful versus the MLB odds on the road. The Giants win their games with pitching as they have a dominant duo of Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain. The problem for San Francisco is hitting the ball as they are right near the bottom of the league in runs scored as MLB odds stats show.
Even though San Francisco doesn’t score any runs they are not a huge team going under the MLB odds online sportsbook total. The MLB odds totals on San Francisco games are always low and after Lincecum and Cain, the Giants are nothing special in terms of starting pitchers.
