San Francisco Giants vs LA Angels Prediction

The San Francisco Giants didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time of this publish, but it probably doesn’t matter. The LA Angels are still the LA Angels, an underwhelming team that doesn’t string together offense. The San Francisco Giants need to take advantage of games like this if they’re going to stay in the wild card race, and 19 of their 34 wins have come at home. Regardless of who is on the mound for the Giants, I’m going to side with the home team in game 1 against the Angels.
