San Francisco Giants
The Giants continue their quest for the postseason with a 4-game set versus the Diamondbacks. San Francisco has made a move after the all-star break, but are just 4-6 over their last 10 heading into Thursday’s series opener. SF is 4.5 GB in the wild card race, but have four teams to leap-frog so wins in the desert this weekend are imperative.
San Francisco takes off on the road starting Thursday, their first game going away in the last 9 contests. The Giants won 3 of their last 4 at Oracle Park but they’re doing it with pitching as the offense has been held to 3 runs or less in 6 of the last 10.
The Giants have good value Friday as +109 underdogs considering Jeff Samardzija is on the hill. San Francisco has been victorious in six straight Samardzija starts. The righty’s home/road splits are very similar but Samardzija has a 6.35 ERA in two outings vs. the D’Backs this season.
Arizona comes back home after a quick 6-game division road trip at the Dodgers and at Colorado. The D’Backs went 3-3 on that away swing and as expected their offense looked good at Coors Field, posting 23 runs in 3 games.
Arizona is a game under .500 on the season but they have taken 4 of 5 at Chase Field. The offense has been great in the comfort of the desert as well, scoring 42 runs in the last 5 home games.
Mike Leake takes the ball in Friday’s game two. The right-hander was absolutely torched in his last outing, giving up 8ER in 5.0 IP to the Dodgers. Leake should be much better this time around however (obviously) as his ERA is just 3.04 at home on the season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Giants are 7-3 last 10 Friday games
- Giants are 13-6 last 19 road games
- Giants are 6-0 in Samardzija’s last 6 road starts
- Diamondbacks are 4-1 last 5 home games
- Giants are 4-1 last 5 in Arizona
Free San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Diamondbacks are going to be a tough out in this one. Leake should be solid even if the Arizona offense may struggle vs. Samardzija. It will likely be a low scoring affair, but ultimately the home squad gets the edge.

Arizona is favored for a reason in this one even if the Giants are the hotter public play.
