The San Francisco Giants look to continue their winning streak at home today vs. the Chicago Cubs. All up to date lines for this game can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Giants have won two close games to start this series, and both in the same relative fashion. The Giants got clutch hitting when they needed it and a quality start from Matt Cain en route to the win on Saturday. Cain notched his 6th win on the season and today the Giants will turn to Barry Zito to get the job done. Zito has won 3 of 4 games and has only allowed 51 hits in 58 innings so far on the season.
After snapping a 12-game losing streak the Cubs have dropped a pair to the Giants this weekend. The Cubs offense was enemic once again on Saturday as they only had 5 hits in all and 1 run vs. the Giants. They wasted a good pitching performance from Matt Garza and will turn to Tom Wood to stop the bleeding here on Sunday. Wood has lost his only decision this season has only seen limited action with just 16 innings of work so far this season.
San Francisco is 5-1 in their last six games overall, 5-1 in their last six home games against a left handed starter, and 4-1 in Zito’s last five home starts. Chicago is 3-14 in their last 17 games overall, 1-7 in their last eight games against a left handed starter, and 1-5 in their last six road games against a team with a winning record.
Tom Wood does not overly excite us and the Cubs have been playing very lackluster baseball lately to say the least. Give us the Giants as a strong M/L pick in this one at sports books.
