Baseball Betting: D’backs vs Giants Game Preview

Giants Mounting Comebacks, Looking for Ultimate Comeback With Wild Card

D’Backs vs Giants Game Preview: The Arizona Diamondbacks odds (+180) look tempting but this isn’t the time of year to be messing with teams that won’t be sniffing the MLB World Series schedule in October. There are too many variables with bad teams to be chasing the big plus money with. Usually, this is a good time to look at the total because it’s always a bankroll-friendly number.

Game Information

Dried Up Snakes Offense Has Had Success Against Rodon

Even the run-line doesn’t move the meter as a potential wager tonight, but the success that Arizona has had against Carlos Rondon does. In two previous starts against Arizona, Rondon has dropped 7-3 and 8-3 decisions. In those games, he has allowed nine runs in 11 innings, making Arizona a team that Rondon has never beaten in his career.

Over their last 57 road games, Torey Lovullo’s team cashed 37 overs’ against teams with a winning record. and five of seven after a loss. Arizona is trying to win a season series (6-5) against a team they were just 2-17 against last season. Winning in San Francisco has been a challenging task for the D’Backs who have lost 19 of 21 at Oracle Park.

Giants Steal Game From Diamondbacks, Wild Card Spot in Reach

The Giants were down to their last strike Tuesday when they managed to do what they always do against Arizona, win. A two-strike triple by player Thairo Estrada and a two-run shot by Brandon Crawford gave the Giants faithful a 2-1 win, and 37 in their last 53 meetings against the Snakes.

The Giants are just 4.5 games out of the final wild-card spot with plenty of games to be played. The odds that the Giants will end up in the World Series discussion is still a long shot, but their pennant hopes remain alive for the moment. You can’t have a D’backs vs Giants Game Preview without pointing out the success San Fran has had at homes against teams under .500.

In their last 88 games against the worst teams in the league, the Giants have come through winning 60 of those matchups. We won’t be on the side in this one but if you wanted to throw them in a parlay the numbers certainly would suggest that would be the right side. The Giants have succeeded against Diamondback starter Zach Davies, winning four of five decisions including 3 of 4 in San Francisco.

Bettor’s Best Chance to Cash is With Generous Total

Brandon Belt, Mike Yastrzemski, and J.D. Davis are all hitting over .500 against Davies who has struggled to pitch past the fifth inning since returning from a shoulder injury. We are going to see a Diamondbacks bullpen that is 23rd in baseball with a 4.10 era.

The Giants pen is even worse at 4.41 (25th). The over is 22-5-1 in the Giants’ last 28 games when their opponent allows two runs or less in their previous game. That fits in nicely with a 33-16-2 over success in the Giants’ last 51 after scoring two runs or less in their previous game.

To conclude our D’Backs vs Giants Game Preview, the recommendation is to go over the total of 7.5 but get it now because that number is moving up.
