MLB betting on Friday includes the start of a big three-game series between National League Wild Card contenders as the San Francisco Giants host the Colorado Rockies.
It is a rematch of last week’s bet on MLB series when the Rockies won two of three at home.
MLB betting results show that the Colorado Rockies have won 13 of the last 20 games between the two teams. Somewhat surprisingly, Colorado has won 6 of the last 10 at San Francisco as MLB betting stats indicate.
If you are going to bet on MLB totals at the online sportsbook in this game you should know that the games at San Francisco usually go under. That is just the opposite of what happens in Colorado when these two meet as the games go over the MLB betting total at the sportsbook. 7 of the last 10 between the two in San Francisco have gone under the MLB betting total at the online sportsbook. The team met in early May in San Francisco and all three games went under the MLB betting number.
Friday’s MLB betting game is a rematch of last week’s pitching duel between Ubaldo Jimenez and Tim Lincecum. Jimenez out-dueled Lincecum last time out, going eight innings and allowing only two runs. He struck out nine and walked only two as MLB betting statistics tell us to win his sixth straight. He has allowed three or fewer runs in his last nine starts as bet on MLB stats indicate.
Lincecum took a no-hitter into the sixth inning on Sunday as MLB betting results indicated but couldn’t hang on and ended up losing. Lincecum is winless in his last four MLB betting starts at 0-1. He is still the Cy Young favorite though and a win here would be huge for the Giants.
The Rockies usually win their games with strong hitting and effective pitching while the Giants win with great pitching and occasional hitting. The Giants have the one-two pitching punch of Lincecum and Matt Cain and that is oftentimes enough for them to win. Colorado has a nice lineup and effective pitching which gives them a potent combination. It is definitely a contrast of styles when these two teams meet in MLB betting.
