Shane’s Free Pick

Glasnow has been lights out this season and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Giants really struggled to score on Sunday, even though they were able to win, and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. This is going to be a very comfortable victory for the Giants. Back the Rays on the money line.
