The Cincinnati Reds and the San Francisco Giants play a deciding game five this afternoon with the winner advancing to the NLCS. Odds for this game are at Top Bet sportsbook.
After losing the first two games at home the Giants have battled back in a big way since the series shifted to Cincinnati and have forced a game five. In the last two games the Giants have gotten back to the formula that has worked best solid pitching and timely hitting which is the equation that landed them the National League West title. They received a clutch performance out of the bullpen yesterday by Tim Lincecum and will look for a similar performance from starter Matt Cain tonight. Cain is coming off of a loss in game one of the series and will be looking to bounce back in a big way and get his team to the NLCS.
If Cincinnati was to lose this deciding game five it would be a long winter considering they had a 2-0 lead heading home. They were stunned in game four and will look to bounce back in game five behind the arm of Mat Latos. One thing the Reds have going for them is the fact that Latos has been great against the Giants. In 16 innings of work he has just given up one run versus San Francisco.
To us this game really boils down to one factor. That factor is we cannot see Matt Cain losing two games in the same series. Give us the Giants on the moneyline and we like them to advance to the NLCS so get sportsbook promo codes.
