We came home with yet another winner for our Sportsbook Room followers as the Oklahoma City Thunder got the win and cover getting five points to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. Just like we thought the schedule would be an issue for the old San Antonio Spurs as in the Western Conference Finals the teams play on every other day and now we are faced with travel in between games following game four. The Spurs defense has failed them by allowing 56.4% of the Thunder in game four and 50% in the critical game five. Our best betting pick from Friday comes from Major League Baseball as the San Francisco Giants will take on the San Diego Padres. The Giants and Padres will begin from the pitchers stadium of Petco Park at 10PM Eastern Time and it’s the MLB package delivering the live national television broadcast. With our Major League Baseball best bet we will play on the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres to play under the total of 6 runs. The odds from the Giants and Padres came courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
The odds opened up in the NL West divisional encounter with the road club San Francisco Giants lined -105 odds with the home club San Diego Padres take back at -105 odds. The run total came out at six runs. Money early has landed on the Giants as San Francisco is now lined at -109 odds with the San Diego Padres now the underdog at -101 odds. The total has held firm at 6 runs. Those betting the San Francisco Giants and laying the -1 ½ runs will get back +170 odds for their run line wager. Bettors playing on the home team San Diego Padres on the run line and taking the +1 ½ runs will lay -185 odds.
The San Francisco Giants will send right hander Tim Lincecum to the mound to face the anemic Padres hitters. Lincecum is coming of a nice home effort on Wednesday against Arizona where he allowed just one earned run and two hits over seven innings. Lincecum has a win this season against San Diego where the hurler allowed no earned runs and three hits over eight innings. Over his past three starts against the Padres Lincecum has allowed one earned run in 23 innings pitched. Lincecum tonight is backed by a cold hitting Giants team pushing across just 2.7 runs per game over their past seven contests. Giants pitching are allowing 1.9 runs per game over their past seven games.
Anthony Bass takes the mound for the Padres to face the Giants bats. Bass has pitched better at home with an ERA of 3.21 in five starts. He had one start against San Francisco this season and allowed just two earned runs with six hits and no walks in eight innings. The Padres can’t hit at home as the team averages less than three runs per game and bats .209. Both squads can pitch and can’t hit so bet the under and before doing so read a sports book review.
