San Francisco is 4-0 following a loss, 6-16 in their last 22 home games, and 4-1 in Lincecum’s last five starts. Los Angeles is 2-6in their last eight road games, 8-2 against the NL west, and 27-12 in Greinke’s last 39 starts as a favorite. Los Angels is 4-12 in the last 16 meetings of these two.
The total is set at 6.5 and with the playoff feel of this rivalry game I like the under. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
