San Francisco Giants
The Giants currently sit in a NL Wildcard spot at the time of writing, but it’s a close race and every game matters. They will hope that sending their undisputed ace and one of the games best chuckers in Madison Bumgarner to the mound.
The lefty owns a 14-8 record and 2.51 ERA on the season with a whopping 217 strikeouts on the season.
The offense is paced by Buster Posey, who remains the game’s best catchers, and his .289 average on the year.
The Giants aren’t much of a power team, as their leader in homers is Brandon Belt and his 15 dingers, but they are on-base machines at .328, good for 8th overall.
Arizona’s struggles this season have been well documented, dealing the 1st overall pick last summer, Dansby Swanson, and other strong prospects to the Atlanta Braves for Shelby Miller.
Miller, for his part, was demoted this season due to an awful performance in the desert. The long-term injury to star outfielder AJ Pollock certainly didn’t help any.
Braden Shipley, the promising prospect, was called up and has since recorded a 3-3 record and 4.94 ERA to kick-off his career across his 8 starts.
The young righty won’t overpower hitters, as his K/9 ratio sits at just 26/19 across 47 innings, and he currently owns a WHIP of 1.44, though he’s pitching in a tough pitcher park.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Shipley has allowed 18 earned runs across his last 22.3 innings
- San Francisco is 36-35 on the road this year.
- The Giants are 4-6 over their past 10 games.
- Arizona is 4-6 in their past 10 games.
- The Diamondbacks are hitting .274 against LHP.
