MLB Baseball Wagering – San Francisco Giants at Philadelphia Phillies
After calling all three of the Philadelphia Phillies, (16-13, 14-15 O/U) last three games correctly in the Our best Sportsbooks, including Thursday’s 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres, I am back to give the Top Sportsbooks MLB Betting Community another winning wager on Philadelphia’s matchup tonight with the San Francisco Giants, (13-16, 13-16 O/U), winners of two of their last three games including a 3-2 win of their own over the struggling Colorado Rockies.
The Phillies, winners of seven of their last ten games, will hand the ball to impressive young right-hander Kyle Kendrick, (2-2, 5.13 ERA) who is coming off a so-so performance in his last outing as he allowed four runs in seven innings as the Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.
The Giants, whose pitching staff has taken a huge hit recently with veteran left-hander Barry Zito being sent to the bullpen, and starters Noah Lowry and Kevin Correia being injured, will give the ball to veteran lefty, Pat Misch (0-0, 3.00) who is making his first start this season after making his only appearance this season in relief of Zito last Sunday. Misch allowed two runs in the final six innings of the Giants’ 10-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.
Not only do the Phillies feature one of the best offenses in all of baseball, but they are also getting some spectacular performances out of their bullpen as the team’s relievers have a NL-best 2.56 ERA.
“The bullpen has been outstanding,” said starter Adam Eaton, who pitched six innings. “They’re definitely holding their own and need to be recognized as one of the better bullpens in the majors.”
Here is a look at tonight’s key trends followed by my MLB Free Picks.
The Giants are 0-4 in Misch’s last four starts.
The Giants are 0-4 in Misch’s last four starts on grass.
The Phillies are 5-0 in Kendrick’s last five starts during game one of a series.
The Phillies are 13-5 in Kendrick’s last 18 starts as a favorite.
The Under is 5-2 in Giants last seven games vs. a right-handed starter.
The Under is 13-6 in Giants last 19 road games with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
The Over is 4-0 in Kendrick’s last four starts during game one of a series.
The Over is 4-0 in Kendrick’s last four starts vs. National League West.
The Giants are 6-14 in the last 20 meetings.
The Giants are 2-8 in the last ten meetings in Philadelphia.
Analysis: This pick is an absolute ‘no-brainer’ MLB bettors. Take the Phillies behind Kendrick and the ball club’s powerful offense, to cruise to victory tonight.
