The San Francisco Giants have been the surprise package of the 2021 MLB season and they will once again be looking to put another road win on the board, as the face off with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday evening.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants are playing fundamentally sound baseball right now, taking advantage of the offense that they do have, and pitching and defending exceptionally well. They have hit a rough patch recently, though, as they enter this one off the back of a 3 game losing streak including getting swept in a 2 game series by the Dodgers.
The batting order has been pretty strong scoring the 9th most runs so far this season at 385, and on top of that they lead all of the major leagues in WHIP at 1.10 so they really are doing everything well.
Alex Wood will get the call to the mound for this matchup and he has given up 10 earned runs over his last 3 outings spanning 14.1 innings so he has not exactly been crushing it as of late. The Diamondbacks are not the worst batting lineup, especially at Chase Field either, so he will need to find a bounce back performance to earn a quality start here.
The Diamondbacks are on a 2-22 run in their last 24 games in one of the more shocking collapses in recent history, as they have just been unable to pick up victories despite the start of the season not being too bad for them.
The pitching has been quite bad to put it lightly, with this team ranking 30th in both WHIP and batting average, and even though this team has an okay batting lineup they will rarely put up enough runs to make up for the pitching.
The Diamondbacks will go with Zac Gallen for this one, who has been a pretty decent pitcher for them and has only allowed 3 runs during his past two outings, so it would not be a surprise to see him pitching well yet again.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Even with Zac Gallen taking to the hill for the Diamondbacks here I do not see this one going well for the home team, as they just do not seem to be able to get anything together and I find it tough to believe that is going to change against the best team in baseball.
The Giants are going to be pretty big favorites here, so I am going to roll with the road team on the runline to get that price closer to even money, as I do not think the Giants will fail to cover the run and a half spread here.
