The San Francisco Giants may have secured the NL West pennant by bringing on Carlos Beltran, but the Arizona Diamondbacks are not about to go away quietly. The sports betting baseball world was a bit surprised to see the Diamondbacks in or near first place in the NL West for most of the season. But the Diamondbacks have shown that they are going to be a force to be reckoned with right to the very end. As Arizona sits four games out of first place in the NL West, a first place spot occupied by the San Francisco Giants, the Diamondbacks are handed the perfect opportunity to make up some ground as they travel to San Francisco to take on the Giants.

National League Series Betting Pick:

Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Francisco Giants - Monday, August 1 – 10:15 PM ET


There is no speculation as to who will start this game on the mound for the Giants because San Francisco is still adjusting its rotation because of injuries. MLB betting experts are speculating that Tim Lincecum may start for the Giants, and that would be fine for the Diamondbacks because Arizona is putting their ace on the mound for this game.

Ian Kennedy and his 12-3 record take the mound for the Diamondbacks. He is 6-1 in his last 10 starts and has a 3.28 ERA in that stretch. The last time he faced San Francisco was a no-decision on June 16th. But the Giants, with Beltran in the line up, are better equipped to handle Kennedy this time.

Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Francisco Giants – Tuesday, August 2 – 10:15 PM ET

There is no logical reason for saying that the San Francisco Giants will have problems in this game other to say that the Giants have troubles in the second game of a series. In June, the Giants lost the second game of the first two series of the month, and both of those series were at home.

The Diamondbacks will put Daniel Hudson on the mound, and Hudson has had problems his past few starts. In his last two starts, Hudson is 0-2 and has given up a total of nine earned runs in those games. But prior to that streak, Hudson was 4-0 in his previous eight starts. If the Diamondbacks are going to be part of the World Series betting, then they need Hudson to get back on track. That is what he will do in this game.

Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Francisco Giants – Wednesday, August 3 – 3:45 PM ET

The Arizona Diamondbacks will put up an exceptional fight in this series, but there is too much working in favor of the Giants to allow the Diamondbacks to pick up ground in this series. Tim Lincecum is pitching like the World Series champion that he is, closer Brian Wilson and his beard remain all powerful in saving games and Carlos Beltran has snapped in perfectly with the Giants’ batting order. In the end, it will be pure talent that rolls over the Diamondbacks.

For their part, the Arizona Diamondbacks have a lot to look forward to for next season. They need to pick up some middle relief for the bullpen and a couple of more prolific bats, but there is the core of a good team in Arizona. The only thing is that it will be next season before the Diamondbacks can really put together an impressive run. For now, Arizona will have to watch the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants make another run at the title.
