San Francisco, California
The Line: Arizona Diamondbacks -115 / San Francisco Giants +106 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants meet Sunday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing nine of their last 14 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 30 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 59 hits and 30 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Ketel Marte have combined for 111 hits and 74 RBI. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 3.14 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants also need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Giants have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 46 hits and 22 RBI while Kevin Pillar and Joe Panik have combined for 78 hits and 38 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s first career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 4-11 in their last 15 during game 3 of a series, 2-5 in their last 7 vs. National League West and 1-12 in their last 13 Sunday games. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games, 8-23 in their last 31 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The under is 24-11-1 in the last 36 meetings in San Francisco and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 6-2-1 in Weaver's last 9 starts overall. The over is 13-6 in Giants last 19 overall.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are absolutely tearing the cover off the ball in this series, and they're now running into a rookie pitcher in Anderson who has just 10 career innings under his belt. Weaver has ben nothing but consistent, allowing three or less runs in each of his last nine games and a .226 batting average on the season. Weaver has actually been better on the road than at home this season, and that's with 28.2 innings on both sides. I'll gladly side with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the cheap price.
