San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Giants have been playing very good baseball and I expect that to continue in this series vs. the Diamondbacks.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of money is on the Giants. Both the public and pros are loving San Francisco and like to fade the Diamondbacks. I have a very hard time seeing the Diamondbacks beating a team who is much better than they are.
Cueto was able to shut down the a very good Dodgers lineup last time and I look for him to have another solid outing in this one. Bumgarner is not the same pitcher he used to be and I envision the Giants hitting him around.
I would recommend staying off the moneyline in this one and go with the Giants on the run line.
