Shane’s Free Pick

The Marlins offense has been a big issue all season and it’s not going to be any better in this game. Wood has been strong this season sitting with an ERA of 2.87 and he’s going to really lockdown in this game. The Giants might not run up the score, but they will score enough to get the job done. Back the Giants on the money line.
