Giants Just Can’t Cash a Runline in a Series Opener

Finally ending a streak of 10 straight losses in series openers in their matchup with the Phillies, the Giants open a series against the Brewers on Monday looking to stop another streak in icebreakers that’s haunted San Fran bettors more than it has the team itself.

SHARK BITES
  • The Giants are 0-13 on the runline in their last 13 games when opening a series.
  • The Brewers are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Giants.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of the Brewers’ last 10 games when opening a series.

At 51-75 against the spread, the Giants aren’t the worst runline team in baseball but they’re pretty darn close. They’ll be getting the +1.5-run advantage on the spread this evening but they’ll be sending a largely unproven pitcher to the mound to face Zach Davies (14-6, 4.26 ERA), a young righty who’s given the Brewers a chance to win almost every game he’s started.

Milwaukee has actually gone 6-1 SU in its last seven road games when Davies has started and as we all know, the Giants are awful. The third-year hurler’s 2.52 ERA through 12 starts away from Miller Park should help the Brew Crew end its dismal run at AT&T Park tonight.
