MLB EXPERT PICKS - FULL ANALYSIS ATTACHED

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS MONEYLINE: 1 UNIT (-120)

This is a public fade play. A recent hot streak from Toronto winning 7 of their last 10 games has made them a popular play today. Despite receiving up to 65% of support, we have seen significant reverse line movement with the odds swinging .40 points from Toronto -120 to San Francisco -120. The Giants have been a poor offensive team this season, but possess one of the best pitching staffs early in the year, ranking 5th in overall ERA and top-5 in runs allowed. This will be a battle between 2 former Red Sox pitchers and we put way more faith in Drew Pomeranz than Clay Buchholz. Pomeranz has given up just 2 earned runs in 3 of his 4 starts and has an impressive 23 strikeouts to 8 walks ratio. Buchholz is still a wildcard as he has pitched only 10 innings this season and is starting just his 21st game in the last 3 years. San Francisco's offense is also trending in the right direction. While they are still underwhelming ranking 21st on our TOFI (Total Offensive Index) rankings, this is 9 spots better than the dead-last 30th they have been in for majority of their first 20+ games. The Giants have hit 11 extra-base hits over their last 5 games, and have hit 11 HR's over their last 10 games.
