The San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs wrap up their four game series today in San Fran. Get your MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Giants will be going for the sweep today and continue to chase down the first place Dodgers. On Sunday the offense did not do much, but the Giants got another masterful performance out of Barry Zito en route to the shutout win. Looking for the sweep, the Giants will send Ryan Vogelsong to the hill. The righty is riding a 5 game no-loss streak. He has a 2.36 ERA for the season and has only let up 49 hits in 61 innings of work.
The Cubs have one of the worst records in baseball and are the verge of being swept in this series. They were shut out on Sunday, wasting a good effort from starter Tom Wood who let up one run over 7 innings. Jeff Samardzjia will get the ball tonight looking to end a team and personal losing streak. Samardzjia has a strong 3.09 ERA, but has been a victim of the Cubs poor play as a whole.
San Francisco is 6-1 in their last seven games against the N.L. Central, 6-2 in their last eight games as a favorite, and 5-0 in Vogelsong’s last five starts. Chicago is 27-58 in their last 85 road games, 2-9 in their last 11 games against a right handed starter, and 5-2 in Samardzjia’s last seven starts. Chicago is 2-6 in their last eight games in San Francisco.
Being this is a travel day, we expect a quick, well pitched game. Since neither of these teams hit well anyway we like an under pick in this one so before making the wager read online sportsbook reviews.
