Giants and UNDERS Are Two Peas In A Pod

The San Francisco Giants offense has been bad all season long but their recent display of pitching and defense have made them money for totals bettors. The UNDER has cashed in the Giants’ past six games with a combined average of 5.3 runs scored in that span. The Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks could make it a perfect 3-for-3 for UNDER bettors when they close their series Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 1-8 ATS in their past 9 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the past 8 games between the Giants and Diamondbacks.
  • The Giants are 1-5 SU in their past 6 games on the road against the Diamondbacks.

Since being called up from the minors, pitcher Chris Stratton has been a revelation for the Giants. The 27-year-old righty has a 1.02 ERA and has allowed just 14 hits in 17.2 innings since joining the big club. Stratton enters this start on a two-game scoreless streak, not allowing a run over 12.2 innings.

Not to be outdone, the D-backs will start the red-hot Patrick Corbin. The lefty has been unstoppable lately and has allowed just one run in his past three starts. In those three outings, all of which were quality starts, Corbin has struck out 21 batters while walking just four.
