The San Francisco Giants will meet the Arizona Diamondbacks in game two of their playoff series from San Francisco. All MLB odds can be found by visiting Bovada sportsbook.
The Giants trail the Dodgers by a good amount of games and until they slow down the Giants have their eyes on a wild card berth. The Giants as a team at the plate on Monday did what they had to in order to earn Barry Zito his fourth win of the season as the offense totaled 4 runs on 9 hits. Ryan Vogelsong will get the start for the Giants tonight and he has won his last 3 decisions en route to a 2.50 ERA in 54 innings of work on the season.
The Diamondbacks find themselves on the brink of obscurity heading into this series with the Giants. On Monday they were only able to amass 2 runs on 9 hits as a team and Trevor Cahill notched his fifth loss on the season in the process. Joe Saunders will get the start tonight for Arizona and Saunders is actually coming off a win in his last start. The lefty has been average this season pitching to a 3.79 ERA in 57 innings.
San Francisco is 6-2 in their last eight game two of a series, 6-2 in their last eight games as a home favorite, and 3-7 in Vogelsong’s last 10 home starts. Arizona is 3-8 in their last 11 games against the N.L. West, 2-8 in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record, and 1-4 in Saunders’ last five starts as an underdog. Arizona is 27-60 in their last 87 games in San Francisco.
We really like Vogelsong in this game and think that Saunders can keep the game close. We will take the under on the runs total in this one at online sportsbooks.
