Analysis
Our 20* MLB Tuesday Vegas Jackpot is with San Francisco with the money line versus San Diego at 9:45 pm et. It was supposed to be San Diego challenging the Los Angeles Dodgers for supremacy in the NL West division and the National League. Instead, it has been the San Francisco Giants who have been the biggest challenge to reigning World Series champions. San Francisco holds a 2 1/2 game lead over the Dodgers after beating the Padres last night, 9-1, in the first game of this series. The Giants have been remarkably consistent all season. They have won eight in a row and ten of their last eleven, and they have won forty-one of their last fifty-nine games. San Francisco has won forty of their last fifty-two games after playing a game where they scored at least five runs, and they have won ten of their last fourteen after not allowing more than two runs in their previous game. At home at Oracle Park, the Giants have won thirteen of their last seventeen games when the oddsmakers install the over/under in the 9 to 10.5 range. In their last seven games, they are averaging 9.3 runs per game with a .327 batting average and a .602 slugging percentage. They face a struggling Jake Arrieta who has a 5-12 record this year with a 7.04 era and a 1.73 whip. The Cubs gave up on Arrieta after he posted a 6.88 era and a 1.76 whip in twenty starts for them. In his two starts for the pitching starved Padres who have lost four starting pitchers to injury this season, he has been worse with an 8.64 era and a 1.44 whip. His teams this season have only won twice in their fifteen games when Arrieta is their starting pitcher as a money line underdog. San Diego has lost four in a row and twenty of their last twenty-eight games to have their record fall to a 74-69 clip. They are 19 1/2 games behind the Giants in the division. The Padres have lost five in a row on the road, and they have won only once in their last eleven games on the road when the oddsmakers install them as the underdog. The face Anthony DeSclafani, who has an 11-6 record with a 3.33 era and a 1.12 whip in twenty-seven starts. The right-hander has thrived pitching for the Giants due in large measure to his hard-hit rate of 31.0% which is the second-lowest mark in his career. At night, DeSclafani has a 2.65 era and a 0.99 whip in twenty starts, and San Francisco has won fifteen of those twenty games. In San Diego’s last seven games, they are averaging only 2.4 runs per game with a .189 batting average and a .263 slugging percentage. The Padres have lost four in a row against teams using starting pitchers with a whip of 1.15 or lower, and they have only won twice in their last seven against right-handed starting pitchers. Take San Francisco with the money line. Good luck - Team Del Genio.
