The Giants are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 17-7 in their last 24 vs. a team with a losing record. The Diamondbacks are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Corbins last 5 starts. The Giants are 23-7 in the last 30 meetings in Arizona.
Can the Giants win on the road? We're talking about a Giants team that's won just seven road games since the beginning of August. Not good. While the Dimaondbacks haven't been better overall, I give Arizona the slight edge given its at home on a quick turnaround.
