Giants vs. Diamondbacks Pick
After winning the first two games of the series will the Giants have trouble beating the Diamondbacks tonight at 8:10PM ET? Read on for our prediction.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Diamondbacks are -130 money line favorites over the Giants, who have odds of +120 to pull off the upset on the road tonight. With Jake Peavy set to go against Patrick Corbin in the pitching matchup, the over/under sits at 9, down from 9.5.
Largely due to his ineffectiveness, the over is 6-1 in Peavy's last seven starts, including 4-0 in his last four starts on the road. The over is also 5-1 in Peavy's last six road starts versus a team with a losing record and 9-3 in his last 12 starts versus National League West opponents.
The over is also 4-0-1 in Corbin's last five starts overall and is 3-1-1 in his last five starts during Game 3 of a series. The over is 11-5 in his last 16 outings following a quality start in his last appearance as well.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in four of Peavy's last five starts against the Diamondbacks and is 3-1-2 in the Diamondbacks' last six games during Game 3 of a series. The over is also 6-2 in the Giants' last eight road games versus a left-handed starter and is 5-2 in their lat seven games overall versus a left-handed starter. Given how shaky Peavy has been in recent starts, the Diamondbacks should put up plenty of runs to help push the combined score over the today tonight at Chase Field.
