I will bet on team overs against Jake Peavy all day, he is arguably the worst regular SP in the majors at this point of his career. He enters a brutal pitcher’s park in the desert heat of Arizona against a formidable offense led by superstar Paul Goldschmidt.
Meanwhile, Arizona has struggles of their own at home and are sending Patrick Corbin to the mound who mirrors the teams misery at Chase thus far.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants have again been a force this year, and will take on a Arizona squad who has virtually the same totals in runs and average.
While they lag behind the D-Backs in HR’s, they do hit in a much less favorable home park at AT&T Field- as witnessed by their 19 homers on the road compared to just 13 at home.
The showdown in the desert against a lefty should help increase these totals though, as they have hit .280 against LHP this year. The Giants will enter the game at 9-8 on the road this season.
Unfortunately for San Francisco, they will be sending Jake Peavy and his 8.47 ERA to face off against a top-10 offense. Peavy might be better served as a bench bat at this point considering his .333 average in 9 ABs this season, so maybe he can help his own cause at the plate.
It tough not to see him letting in less than 5 runs in this one.
Arizona currently sits in 5th in the MLB in homers with 46, and 6th in runs with 170, and 7th in average at .267.
Table setter Jean Segura is currently sporting a .353 BA on the year, Wellington Castillo is on pace for a career year with .312 and 7 HRs early on and Paul Goldschmidt is doing what Paul Goldschmidt does.
Patrick Corbin will take the mound coming off a stellar performance in his last start, shutting out the lowly Braves over 7 innings allowing just 5 hits.
While he carries a 4.12 ERA on the season, he does have a 1.28 WHIP and is 0-3 at home with a 7.23 ERA at home this year.
Between Corbin and Peavy, it’s likely safe to expect a high run total for the game.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- the Giants are 5-5 in their last 10
- San Fran has a collective .280 BA against LHP in 122 ABs this season
- The Diamondbacks are 5-13 at home
- Patrick Corbin has a 0-3 record and a 7.23 ERA at Chase Field this year.
- Arizona is 5-5 in their last 10
Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 9.5 total runs
While Chase Field isn’t Coors Field, it’s not a pitcher’s park by any means and Peavy have not shown anything to led me to believe that he won’t get slaughtered by this offense.
Patrick Corbin’s numbers are certainly not inspiring at Chase either, and the fact that the Giants hit better against lefties than they do right-handers, this should make for a game with a lot of runs scored.
