Baseball Betting – Chicago Cubs at San Francisco

May 20th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting favors the San Francisco Giants as they host the Chicago Cubs on Thursday. The Giants have been an excellent team at home this season for those that bet on baseball and even though the pitching matchup doesn’t offer San Francisco a huge edge, they are still the sports betting favorite over the Cubs.

MLB betting has the Cubs going with Ryan Dempster in this game while San Francisco counters with Brad Penny.  Dempster has been pitching well of late as bet on baseball numbers indicate. Overall this season he is 10-8 on the season with a 3.72 ERA.  He went eight innings last time out but didn’t get a sports betting decision.  He has gone at least six innings in 10 straight MLB betting starts.  He beat the Giants back in May as he gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings. Dempster has turned things around on the road recently as he is 3-1 in his last six road baseball betting starts.

San Francisco sends Brad Penny on Thursday in this MLB betting game. Penny is 10-9 on the season with a 5.35 ERA. He is 3-3 in his career against the Cubs with a 2.64 ERA. He has pitched very well in San Francisco of late going 2-0 with a 2.57 ERA. He did not pitch well last time out at Los Angeles as he gave up seven runs and five hits in just over 2 innings.

The Giants and Cubs have split their last 10 MLB betting meetings in San Francisco.  They haven’t met since last July in San Francisco when the teams split a four game bet on baseball series. Three of those four games did go over the baseball betting total.

The time to bet on baseball with the Giants is when they are at home. They have been excellent at home this season. It probably won’t be enough for them to make the playoffs but the Giants have made gamblers who wager on MLB betting at the sports book some nice money in home games. San Francisco’s pitching is normally excellent at home and they are able to scratch out enough runs to win in MLB betting.
