MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The San Francisco Giants were the surprise package of the first half of the season and they will look to continue their great run this Friday at Busch Stadium when they take on the St. Louis Cardinals.
San Francisco Giants
It is tough to poke any real holes in this Giants roster, as they have pitched extremely well, and have found a way to be a top 10 batting unit thanks to some breakout performers. Buster Posey has been one of those guys, as we knew he is an excellent catcher, but few people saw him hitting 12 home runs and averaging .328 at this point in the season.
It would be tough not to talk about this Giants batting lineup without talking about Brandon Crawford who has put up awesome stats with 18 home runs, 58 RBI, and a very respectable .289 average.
The Giants could also be another team who improves as they get healthier with 15 players on the injured list, and now it looks like some of their key players will be back soon with guys like Aaron Sanchez and Brandon Belt getting closer to a return.
Kevin Gausman will get the call to the hill here and he will likely put this team in a position to win, as he has been able to do that all year long with and ERA of 1.73 and an outstanding record of 9-3.
St. Louis Cardinals
It feels like the Cardinals were supposed to go on a run about 3 weeks ago, as they had a series of games against lower-end competition, but they were simply unable to get the job done limping into the All-Star break. It is tough to know what to make of this team now, as they do not exactly get an easy task in the Giants on Friday, but they do have the talent on paper to compete with the elite teams in the league.
Based on the guys on the roster you feel like this team should be scoring more runs as well, with guys like Nolan Arenado proving to be an excellent signing with 17 home runs and 56 RBI and he is not the only guy who is producing.
The starting rotation is not half bad either with guys like Jack Flaherty having nice seasons and as a unit they have been able to pitch in with 31 quality starts which ranks 14th in all of the major leagues.
Free San Francisco Giants vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I do not know what to make of the St. Louis Cardinals at this point, but I have few questions about the Giants and that statement is especially true with a guy like Kevin Gausman on the hill. They will likely be big favorites here and I see the better value being with the runline, as it is not tough to imagine Gausman shutting down this Cardinals batting lineup and going deep into this game.
