The Diamondbacks pitching staff continues to get rocked left and right and they haven’t won a game in over two weeks. The Giants offense is heating up and Kevin Gausman has been dominant this season. There’s only one way to go here, as the Diamondbacks remain fade material until further notice. Give me the Giants and the RL for max betting value.
