3 units on San Francisco +158 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Tim Lincecum is worth a shot at any underdog odds in any game, especially in this price range. He has not allowed more than 3 runs in any of his six starts, and 1 run or less in four of them. He simply keeps the Giants in the game every time he takes the mound. Cole Hamels got out of the gate quickly, pitching to an 0.82 ERA over his first three starts, but has pitched to a 4.64 ERA over his last three, allowing three HR's in his last two. The Giants have played good baseball of late winning six of their last 10, and five of their last eight on the road. Philly bats have been silenced over the last six where they have scored 3 or less in four of them. We like the Giants to come away with the win in Philly today.
