3 units on San Francisco +118 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Cincannti hasn't won back-to-back games in three weeks. We look for that streak to continue as they face Barry Zito. Zito has been horrible this season but he's due to improve and to get him at home at even-money vs. a team that is 4-7 on the road, and averaging 3.6 runs per game vs. LHP is not an opportunity that's going to come along often. The Giants' offense has sputtered so far in 2008 but there are signs of improvement as they have gone 4-3 their past seven games, averaging 4.3 runs per game. Cincinnati hasn't fared well recently vs. teams that lack offensive power. They are just 10-29 the past two seasons vs. teams averaging under 0.75 home runs per game. They are also 33-52 vs. teams with a losing record over that span and 30-33 as a favorite. that includes a 17-23 mark as a favorite of -125 to -175. We'll take the home team here.
