Houston Astros vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This series is a very interesting one. It features 2 of the best teams in all of baseball. It is not by a lot, but I like the Astros in this one.
To me, these 2 teams are about even, but I do give the slight edge to the Astros. They have more firepower and I think they will show that on Sunday.
Luis Garcia was not good in his last outing, but I can expect him to be sharper in this contest and help lead his team to a win. Webb has been solid, but he will have his hands full going against this Houston lineup.
I’ve got the Astros at +100 in this one.
