How To Bet On Giants Diamondbacks – Giants Look To Build Some Cushion In NL West

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 9/6/2012 6:53:51 PM

The San Francisco Giants have demonstrated resilience in their battle for top spot in the National League West, running their lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers to 4.5 games despite the severe gap in payroll between the two teams. The Giants can move one step closer to locking up the division and a playoff spot when they travel to the desert to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game set this weekend, although they did lose two of three when these teams met in the Bay area early last sports betting week.

The Giants haven’t been particularly amazing in any one area, although their pitching staff has ranked in the top-10 in ERA and they will open this game with their ace on the mound in Matt Cain. Cain has taken that role from Tim Lincecum with a 13-5 record and 2.98 ERA, and had led San Francisco to wins in five-straight starts ahead of his date with the Dodgers last weekend. The Diamondbacks will counter with Trevor Cahill, and while he has looked in each of his last two starts the 24-year old has struggled with consistency this entire betting season.

Falling more than eight games back of the division lead has opened the door for Arizona to test some of its arms even younger than Cahill, including 21-year old Tyler Skaggs, who will get the start on Saturday. Skaggs is 1-1 with a 2.60 ERA through three starts, but he hasn’t gotten a lot of run support and the Diamondbacks have dropped the last two that he has pitched in. That isn’t likely to change in this game as San Francisco sends Barry Zito to the mound, as the veteran has led the Giants to six-straight sportsbook wins. Zito’s ERA has climbed a full point over the last month, but he has been just good enough in all of his starts and continues to get a ton of run support.

Run support will be key for San Francisco as it looks to close out the sweep with Ryan Vogelsong on the mound for Sunday’s game. Vogelsong has allowed an average of 4.5 runs over the course of his last six starts, and has lasted three innings or less in three of them. That bodes will for the Diamondbacks with Wade Miley shooting for his 15th win of the season. Miley has allowed more than three runs only once since July 5th, and should be good enough for Arizona to salvage a win and avoid the home sweep at the hands of a resilient Giants’ team that just continues to work hard and grind out results.
