Giants Look to Cool Off Streaking Cubs
The Chicago Cubs and the San Francisco Giants kick off a three-game series at AT&T Park this Monday night at 10:15 p.m. (ET). VietBet has opened Chicago as a slight -107 road favorite with the total set at 7.5 runs. The Giants are now -121-moneyline favorites and the total is up to 8 Under -119.
The Cubs went 7-1 during their recent eight-game home stand. That was after losing six of their previous eight games on the road. It all adds up to an overall record of 51-36. That puts them a game and a half behind Milwaukee for first place in the NL Central.
Chicago is 23-21 on the road this season and the total has gone OVER VietBet’ closing line in six of its last seven road games.
Kyle Hendricks will be making his 18th start of the season for the Cubs on Monday night. He allowed three earned runs on seven hits last Tuesday against Detroit in five innings pitched.
This was just the second time Chicago won a game in the right handers last seven starts. He is 5-8 on the year with a 4.27 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Hendricks has allowed a total of 16 earned runs over his last four outings.
Giants Are Cooking With Crisco at Home
San Francisco is 9-4 in its last 13 home games. They earned a series 2-2 split against St. Louis over the weekend. Sunday’s 13-8 victory as a -128 home favorite ensured the split.
The total went well OVER VietBet’ 7.5-run closing line in that game. They had stayed UNDER in six of its previous eight games at home. The Giants are 3.5 games off the pace in the NL West at 47-45 with a 28-16 record at home.
Look for San Francisco to turn to Andrew Suarez as its starter for Monday night. The left hander lost his last start on July 4. Despite holding Colorado to just one earned run on five hits through seven innings pitched. He was the hard luck loser.
He is 3-5 this season through 14 starts with a 3.92 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in each of his last five trips to the mound.
I like the Giants on Monday night as slight -103 home underdogs. They have played well at home all season long and Suarez gives them the edge in this matchup on the mound.
