Baseball betting time could be running out on the San Francisco Giants in the National League playoff race.
The Giants trail the Colorado Rockies for the National League Wild Card and really have to win every game remaining this bet on baseball season to have a realistic chance.
Baseball betting at the sports book has the Giants at Arizona on Wednesday as Jonathan Sanchez matches up against Kevin Mulvey in an ESPN televised contest. Sanchez is 6-12 on the season with a 4.29 ERA while Mulvey is 0-1 with a 10.95 ERA. Sanchez might have some baseball betting success in this matchup since many of Arizona’s top players have fared poorly against him. Mark Reynolds is hitting just .188 against Sanchez while Stephen Drew is hitting just .261 against Sanchez. The key for Sanchez will be getting Justin Upton and Chris Young out since they do hit well against him as baseball betting stats indicate.
Mulvey has been poor in his first two baseball betting outings for Arizona. He has allowed 10 earned runs in just eight innings as baseball betting statistics indicated. Mulvey was acquired by the Diamondbacks in the trade that sent Jon Rauch to the Twins and was 5-8 with a 3.93 ERA in 24 starts for Triple-A Rochester this year.
Arizona has won 6 of the last 10 home games in baseball betting against San Francisco. That doesn’t bode well for the Giants in a series they really need to sweep in baseball betting. This year has gone pretty well for San Francisco on the road at Arizona as in April they took two of three and in June they also won two of three at Arizona in bet on baseball action. The problem for the Giants in this baseball betting series is that anything less than a sweep is probably not going to be enough.
Six of the last ten games in baseball betting at Arizona between the two teams have gone under the total with one tie.
Part of the problem for the Giants this baseball betting season has been their road record. San Francisco has struggled on the road for much of the season and that could be a concern in this bet on baseball series at the sports book.
