MLB FREE PICK: Take Detroit. According to latest MLB trends, the Giants are 5-0 in their last 5 Thursday games, 7-1 in their last 8 playoff games as an underdog of +110 to +150,  6-1 in their last 7 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150, 5-1 in their last 6 playoff games as an underdog,  10-3 in their last 13 games as a road underdog, 13-4 in their last 17 games as an underdog,  15-5 in their last 20 games following a loss,  27-9 in their last 36 when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game, 25-10 in their last 35 road games, 26-11 in their last 37 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5, 6-0 in Lincecum's last 6 road starts and are 5-1 in Lincecum's last 6 starts. Cardinals are 1-4 in their last 5 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game.  The St. Louis Cardinals hold a 2-1 lead in the National League Championship Series, but they could be without hot-hitting Carlos Beltran in Game 4. Beltran, who is batting .414 this postseason with three homers, is listed as day-to-day after exiting Wednesday’s game in the second inning with a strained left knee. Tim Lincecum is set to make his first start of the postseason after allowing one run on three hits with nine strikeouts in three relief appearances. Wainwright looks to rebound from the shortest start of his career after allowing six runs over 2 1/3 innings against Washington last Friday in Game 5 of the Division Series. The Giants can't afford to go down 3-1 and Lincecum has something to prove.
