The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Oracle Park. 

Big Time National League West Matchup

This is a key series for both the Diamondbacks and Giants as they both are battling for the National League West. Both of these teams have found success this season, and these head to head games could decide who comes out of the West on top. 

Webb’s Funky Stats

Logan Webb has some odd stats heading into this game. Webb currently sits with an 8-9 record and an ERA of 3.49. At times Webb hasn’t gotten the most run support and that’s why the record doen’st look great. In his last start against the Red Sox he went 7.1 innings giving up giving up six hits and three runs. The Giants are averaging 4.47 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.26 runs per game. 

Giants Betting Trends

  • The underdogs have won each of the last four games between the Diamondbacks and Giants.
  • The Giants have failed to cover the run line in each of their last nine games as home favourites against National League opponents following a home win.
  • The 'Inning 1 UNDER 0.5 runs' market has hit in each of the Giants' last three home games.

Diamondbacks Offense Slumping

The Diamondbacks have had one of the best offenses in baseball but the last couple of weeks they have been a little more inconsistent. Even in the first game of this series when they won the Diamondbacks only scored four runs. The Diamondbacks are averaging 4.87 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.86 runs per game. The pitching has been the issue and is ranked 24th in baseball. 

Diamondbacks Betting Trends

  • The underdogs have won each of the last four games between the Diamondbacks and Giants.
  • The Giants have failed to cover the run line in each of their last nine games as home favourites against National League opponents following a home win.
  • The 'Inning 1 UNDER 0.5 runs' market has hit in each of the Giants' last three home games.

  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of only 3 teams in the league to rank top 10 in both steals and batting average this season.

Shane’s Free Pick

This total is too high. Logan Webb hasn’t always gotten run support and they are going to struggle to get the offense going here. I expect Webb is going to have another one of his strong starts, and that is going to be the difference here. Look for a 3-2 or 4-2 type of game and this game will stay under the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
