3 units on San Francisco +1.5 runs -117 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
You have to look at Barry Zito from the standpoint that he is a 115-86 career pitcher with a CY Young award under his belt. He has also had success against the Tigers where he has a 2.68 ERA in over 90 innings of work against them. He has also allowed three runs or less in six of his last eight starts, and is capable of a gem any time he takes the ball. Armando Galaragga has pitched well over his head after a 6+ ERA last season. The Tiger pen has still struggled, and allowing over two additional runs a game in his starts. The Tigers are a poor road team at 13-22, and to be this big a favorite offers value as they hit just .237 on the road. The Detroit pen is at 5.40 on the road as the Tigers score 4.8 at home but just 3.7 on the road. The Giants get the call here.
