San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Giants have played very well so far this year against the Diamondbacks this year. I expect more of the same in this series.
The Giants are the better team and I look for them to show that again on Monday. I feel very good backing the Giants and have very little confidence betting the Snakes.
Desclafani was not great in his last start, but I look for him to bounce back in this one. The Giants should be able to hit around Widener.
I am going with the Giants on the run line.
