Giants vs. Marlins Free Pick
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Giants are -128 money line favorites over the Marlins, who are +118 on the ML. With Matt Cain set to face Hector Alvarez in the pitching matchup, the over/under total is currently sitting at 7 runs.
LINE MOVEMENT: The Giants opened as -128 money line favorites and that's where their odds currently sit, while the Marlins' odds haven't budged since they opened as +118 money line underdogs. San Francisco is 54-67 overall and 24-36 on the road this year, while Miami is 46-74 overall and 26-33 at home.

MLB FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest MLB trends, the Giants are 6-13 in their last 19 games versus the Marlins and 1-4 in Cain's last five starts against Miami. The Giants are also a brutal 1-4 in Cain's last five starts as a road favorite, 1-7 in his last eight starts as a favorite, and 1-6 in his last seven starts versus a team with a losing record. On the other side, the Marlins are 6-2 in their last eight games versus the NL West and 14-3 in their last 17 games versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
Despite winning the World Series with virtually the same roster (save for Angel Pagan, who's been out with a hamstring injury), the Giants have been atrocious this season. They haven't won three in a row since right before the All-Star break so look for them to fall tonight.
MLB FREE PICK: MIAMI MARLINS +118
