San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Giants did have an off day on Tuesday and lose to a team they would normally beat. I look for them to bounce back and end of the series well.
When looking at these lineups, the Giants just have more firepower than the D-Backs do. I look for San Francisco to be aggressive and swing the bat well on Thursday.
Kelly has been a very good arm in this rotation and I would not be surprised if he pitches decent in this one. Even with that, I feel that the Giants have enough to get some runs off him and get a win.
My final pick is Giants on the moneyline.
