UNDER Worth A Look In Nats-Giants Finale?

The three-game series between the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants has received plenty of attention thanks to a bench-clearing brawl in Game 1. Though the two teams went OVER in Game 2, the UNDER is still the prevailing theme of the rivalry, with the Nats and Giants failing to top the closing total in nine of their past 11 meetings.

Shark Bites
  • Daniel Murphy is 4-for-22 in his career against Matt Cain.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Giants' last 17 games as home underdogs.
  • The Nationals are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games on the road with Max Scherzer as the starting pitcher.

Adding to the potential UNDER streak continuing is an underrated pitching duel. The Nationals, who aim for the sweep Wednesday, will send Max Scherzer to the bump. The Nationals ace has been dealing during the month of May, with a 2.60 ERA and a 49/9 K/BB ratio. Plus, Scherzer is coming off his best outing of the season in which he allowed just one run while recording 13 K’s in 8.2 innings.

The Giants will counter with the unappreciated Matt Cain. The 12-year veteran has been near untouchable at AT&T Park this season with a 1.21 ERA at home. However, Cain has struggled to register wins with the Giants bats giving him one run or less of support in six of his 10 starts.
