Shane’s Free Pick

Gore sits with an ERA of 4.79 and in his last start he gave up five runs. The Giants offense only scored a run a run in the last game, but going against Gore is going to lead to a ton of success. The Giants are averaging 4.59 runs and they are going to go over that number here. Back the Giants on the money line to cash here.
