Predictions For Betting On Rockies Giants – Giants Get The Brooms Out Against Rockies

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 8/9/2012 6:23:23 PM

Sports betting players shouldn’t be counting out San Francisco just yet as they would be in a tough spot in the wild-card race in the National League, but they are leading the National League West over Los Angeles and they have an excellent chance at pulling out a sweep when they host a woeful Colorado team this weekend in San Francisco. The Rockies have gone with young pitchers to finish out their season, while the Giants throw out their three most experiences hurlers to help them to a likely sweep at AT&T Park.

What: MLB Betting
When: Friday, August 10th – Sunday, August 12th
Where: AT&T Park, San Francisco, CA
Pick: San Francisco Giants

Friday, 10:15 PM ET - Tyler Chatwood (1-2, 6.61) vs. Tim Lincecum (6-11, 5.43)

These two met on August 5th in Colorado and Chatwood lasted just 3.1 innings, allowing three runs (one earned) in his first start of the season, walking four and striking out one. Meanwhile, Lincecum came up with his fourth quality start in five outings, giving up a run on five hits over six innings, striking out three, but he also walked five. Walks have been an issue with Lincecum all season as he is third in the National League in that category, but he generally likes facing the Diamondbacks, posting a 9-6 record in 20 starts with a 3.66 ERA, and his ERA of 3.63 at home is much better than an awful 7.50 on the road. Chatwood is 0-1 in two starts against the Giants with a save, along with a 2.84 ERA, but he is still very young at 22 years old.

Lincecum seems to be settling into a groove as the Giants look to make a march to the postseason, which really depends on beating out Los Angeles for the National League West crown, and he’ll get the Giants off to a good start on Friday night.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants

Saturday, 4:05 PM ET - Drew Pomeranz (1-6, 4.76) vs. Matt Cain (10-5, 3.01)

Pomeranz has made it out of the fifth inning just once in his last five starts, and he is 1-0 in two starts against the Giants with a 3.97 ERA, taking a win in his lone trip to San Francisco. Pomeranz is another young gun at 23 years old that the Rockies, who are mired in last place in the West, can afford to give a run-out to as they’re not fighting for a playoff spot. He’ll be facing one of the best and the starter for the National League in the All-Star Game in Cain, but he hasn’t won in four starts and has given up five runs in two of his last four starts. Maybe a meeting with the Rockies is what Cain needs as he is 13-7 in 26 starts against Colorado with a 3.23 ERA. At home this season, Cain has been brilliant with a 2.22 ERA and he deserves a better record than 5-3 in 11 starts.

While Cain has been struggling lately, he likes pitching against the Rockies and he is up against a shaky 23-year-old, which should give his offense confidence and all Cain needs is a couple of runs and the Giants have a great chance to win any given game. Go with the Giants here.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants

Sunday, 4:05 PM ET - Alex White (2-6, 5.75) vs. Barry Zito (9-8, 4.19)

The Rockies continue their youth movement on the mound with 23-year-old White, who hasn’t won in six starts and has gone into the sixth inning just once during that time. He has lost both of his meetings with the Giants, posting an 8.38 ERA, and one of those starts came in AT&T Park, where he gave up three runs in four innings. Zito, who is more than 10 years older than White, and Zito has been a mixed bag over his last 10 starts, but that is what you have come to expect from him anyway. However, Zito is also a fan of pitching to the Rockies, going 6-2 in 18 games (16 starts) with a 2.39 ERA, and he is 4-5 in 11 home starts with a 4.15 ERA.

You never know which Zito is going to come out, but he should be able to come up with enough to lead the Giants to a sweep in your online betting book.
