San Francisco is 12-5 in their last 17 games, 6-2 as a favorite, and 0-6 in Cain’s last six home starts. Colorado is 4-0 following a loss, 16-41 in their last 57 road games, and 8-24 in game two of a series. Colorado is 16-36 in their last 52 games in San Francisco.
Cain just hasn’t gotten it done and simply I can’t lay odds on him when he hasn’t shown he can win.
