Houston Astros vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

This should be a fun game between two young pitches who are in great form in Ronel Blanco and Jordan Hicks. You could make a case for either side. With that said, Hicks is at home and the San Francisco Giants are playing the better ball over the last week or so. Right when the Houston Astros are showing signs of finally putting things together, they lose ground with some sloppy performances. The Giants are playing winning baseball right now. In a pick em spot, give me the Giants in game 2 against the Astros.
