Game 3 – Detroit vs San Francisco Betting / Handicapping
The Giants got off to slow starts in the NLDS and NLCS, but they have jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the World Series. Detroit has only put up three runs in the first two games. The Giants pitching staff has starred so far in this series.

The series now shifts to Detroit, where the Tigers absolutely have to have this game.
Pablo Sandoval was the star of the first game, but it was the Giants pitching staff that dominated Game Two. Madison Bumgarner combined with two relievers to pitch a shutout. Ryan Vogelsong starts in Game Three for the Giants.
No one wanted Vogelsong before last year, but he has quietly been one of the best pitchers in the National League over the past couple years. Vogelsong hasn’t allowed more than one run in any of his last six starts. The Giants offense is much better than most people realize at this point. Hunter Pence was a nice addition to the team.
The Tigers turn to Anibal Sanchez to stop the bleeding. Detroit is obviously still in this series, but they badly need a win here. Sanchez has a 1.37 ERA in his last three starts. He was brought over from the Marlins in a deal in the middle of the season.
The Tigers could only muster two hits in Game Two. Detroit has been good against right-handed pitching this year, so they should be glad to face a righty in this one after seeing two lefties in San Francisco. Detroit needs to get a lead early in this one and put some pressure on the Giants.
So far in this series, it has been the Tigers who have been playing from behind the whole way.
Both of these pitchers have been awesome of late. This isn’t a hitter’s ballpark at all, and both teams know how important this game is. I like this one to stay under.
