Free Houston Astros vs San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
Game 1 of this series didn’t disappoint as the two best teams in baseball battled it out by the Astros won thanks to Altuve and his pair of homers.
Greinke is on the mound for Houston and he’s been great this season but so has Alex Wood for San Francisco.
I don’t see the Giants losing back to back at home where they have been so solid all year.
I’m taking the Giants on Saturday.
