The San Francisco Giants, after chasing the San Diego Padres almost the entire season, have finally caught and passed them to claim ownership atop the NL West. They will have their ace on the mound in Tim Lincecum, who had really gone through a "dead arm" period and struggled, but has been dealing again over his last three starts where he has allowed just five runs in 22 innings. The Brewers are just 9-14 in their last 23 games and this game is vital to the Giants to maintain their slim lead. The Giants are 27-13 behind Lincecum as a home favorite in his last 40 starts here. The Giants have also played UNDER to a 6-1 mark at home in their last seven vs a team with a losing record. The Brewers are just 3-14 behind Gallardo as a dog and have played six straight to the UNDER facing a righthander. I like San Francisco and the UNDER in this one.
