The Line: Arizona Diamondbacks -150 / San Francisco Giants +140 --- Over/Under: 8
The San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Friday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a victory here after winning seven of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The San Francisco Giants have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring at least three runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 86 hits and 36 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 148 hits and 62 RBI. Andrew Suarez gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. This will be Suarez’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring at least two runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 80 hits and 44 RBI while Paul Goldschmidt and Ketel Marte have combined for 146 hits and 73 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 3.24 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 7-7 with a 3.07 ERA and 107 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 24-49 in their last 73 road games, 2-5 in their last 7 Friday games and 1-4 in Suarezs last 5 road starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-0 in their last 5 Friday games, 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 1-4 in Corbins last 5 home starts. The Giants are 2-9 in the last 11 meetings in Arizona and the over is 6-2 in Corbins last 8 starts vs. Giants.
I've backed the San Francisco Giants a ton this season and it's hard for me to turn down plus money with this team that fights and finds ways to claw out victories. However, the Giants are a completely different team on the road than they are at home, and Suarez has an ERA over six with an allowed batting average of .330 on the road. Corbin has been really solid this season and is coming off seven shutout innings against the Pirates. I don't love this price with Arizona, but I have to take it as a fade from the Giants on the road.
