St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Giants blew the lead on Monday. There was no reason for them to drop that one. I expect them to be sharper in this one.
The Giants are the better team and they have to play like it if they wish to stay atop their division.
Alex Wood is the better pitcher in this particular matchup and I think he will show that. I look for the Giants to hit around and Oviedo and get a win.
I will lay the 1.5 with the Giants in this one.
