Phillies Giants Odds: Lee vs Cain

The San Francisco Giants look for a second straight win over the Phillies in a Wednesday MLB odds battle at AT&T Park.

It's a battle of high-end starting pitching as Philadelphia puts its faith in starter Cliff Lee to earn a win and boost his personal mark of 0-1. Getting the ball for the Giants is Matt Cain, who owns a 1-0 record on the season with a 3.00 ERA.

Not surprisingly, the stellar pitching and struggling offenses on both sides have opened the total at 6 at most sportsbooks.
