Randy’s Pick

I'm not running to the window to get behind either of these pitchers, but the San Francisco Giants have been the better team this series, and they're at home with the quick turnaround. The Philadelphia Phillies have had issues on the road, and they've struggled in San Francisco over the years in general. Pick 'em prices, give me the Giants at home.
