The San Francisco Giants and the Arizona Diamondbacks meet in an NL East division matchup in MLB action from Chase Field on Thursday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.

Starting Pitching Matchup
Alex Cobb will start for the Giants and is 2-1 with a 2.01 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. Tommy Henry will get the nod for the Diamondbacks and is 1-0 with a 5.17 ERA and 7 strikeouts this season.
San Francisco’s 4-3 win back on October 2nd, 2022, made it three wins in the last four meetings for the Giants in this head-to-head matchup against Arizona.
San Francisco is 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 4-9 in their last 13 games following a loss while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 road games. Arizona is 12-5 in their last 17 games following a loss and 4-1 in their last 5 series-opening games while the over is 6-2-2 in their lats 10 division games.
I’m backing the over here. Alex Cobb last season pitched far better at home and his road ERA was twice what it was at home. On the other hand, Tommy Henry has had problems giving up runs left and right for some time now and I look for this game to be no different. Give me the over here.
