The Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Francisco Giants will meet for their divisional series finale this Sunday from Oracle Park. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Diamondbacks vs Giants Prediction.

Arizona Diamondbacks Preview

Arizona comes in at 11-11 after falling to San Francisco, 7-3. The Diamondbacks came back down to earth in game three, and they’ll look to tie things up before leaving the Bay this evening. Arizona is batting .255, while scoring 5.7 runs per game, with a team ERA of 4.06.

D’Backs Projected Starter

Merrill Kelly (2-0, 2.19 ERA, 21 K)) will get the ball for Arizona. The Houston native kept his strong start going by holding the Cubs to one run through five innings last time out. Kelly has held his club to two runs or less in all four of his starts, and he’ll be positioned to keep things going here at Oracle this Sunday.  

Arizona’s Player Props

  • Ketel Marte homered in the final two games of the Chicago series, and he leads Arizona in batting (.325) and hits (20), with five homers and 20 runs batted in. 
  • Corbin Carroll has recorded two or more total bases in each of the Diamondbacks' last five road games against opponents that held a losing record.
  • Christian Walker (.254/3/11) has recorded at least one hit in each of the Diamondbacks' last eight games against NL West opponents.
  • Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has produced a run in five of the last eight games, and he leads the D’Backs in RBI (20), with five homers. 

San Francisco Giants Preview

San Francisco enters at 10-11 after defeating Arizona, 7-3. The Giants got some revenge in the D’Backs for the 16-run beating on Friday, and they’ll attempt to secure the series victo try this Sunday. San Fran is batting .245, while scoring 4.3 runs per game, with a team ERA of 4.97.

Projected Starter

Jordan Hicks (2-0, 1.57 ERA) will make the start for San Francisco. The Houston native put together another solid outing last week in Miami, holding the Marlins to two runs through five innings, while striking out five as well. The former longtime Cardinals pitcher has latched on nicely in Bay through four starts, and he’ll have to maintain that energy here against an offensive-minded Arizona team.  

San Francisco’s Player Props

  • Mike Conforto has plated a run in four of the previous six games, and he leads SFG IN RBI (14), while hitting .292.
  • Matt Chapman has totaled multiple bases in four of the last seven games, and he’s tallied 12 runs batted in for the season. 
  • Jung Hoo Lee brings an eight-game win streak into this series, and he’s batting .270, with a team-lead Chapman has totaled multiple bases in four of the seven games, and he’s tallied 12 runs batted in for the season. 
  • LaMonte Wade Jr has recorded two or more total bases in each of the Giants' last five games against the Diamondbacks. 
  • Wilmer Flores has recorded at least one hit in 13 of his last 14 appearances against the Diamondbacks at Oracle Park.

Arizona’s Team Facts 

  • The Diamondbacks have won eight of their last nine day games against NL West opponents.

San Francisco’s Team Facts

  • The 'Inning 1 UNDER 0.5 runs' market has hit in each of the Giants' last five games.

Diamondbacks vs Giants Prediction 

San Francisco got their ball back last night by beating Arizona in game three, but with the visitors set to send another ace to the hill in Merrill Kelly, I don’t mind swaying back in their favor. The Diamondbacks will have advantages at the mound and behind the plate, so as long as Kelly’s holds his end, they will be within reach of a victory this Sunday. Let’s back Arizona for this NL West series finale.
