Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Francisco Giants Betting Prediction
The Diamondbacks send veteran LHP Dallas Keuchel to the hill against San Francisco’s seventh-ranked scoring offense on Tuesday night (4.71 RSPG), who’s having the worst campaign of his decade-long career sitting 2-6 with a 7.63 ERA across 11 starts this season (1.94 WHIP). Keuchel’s recent change of scenery hasn’t helped much either, considering he was 2-5 with a 7.88 ERA before getting traded from Chicago (8 GS, 2.16 WHIP); and since arriving in Arizona, he’s 0-1 with a 7.16 ERA (3 GS, 1.53 WHIP).
On the other hand, the Giants send RHP Logan Webb to the mound against Arizona’s 20th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.27 RSPG), who’s on track for the best campaign of his young career currently sitting 7-3 with a 2.93 ERA across 17 outings (1.11 WHIP), which includes an impressive 5-2 mark and 2.63 ERA across nine home starts.
I’ll back San Francisco to cover here, as Webb has now tossed six innings or more and allowed one run or less in four of his last five outings for the Giants (1.32 ERA, 0.94 WHIP); likely presenting an uphill battle for the D’Backs led by Keuchel, who’s 0-3 with a 10.07 ERA across his last five starts (1.93 WHIP).
Score Prediction: Giants 8, Diamondbacks 2
Best Bet: Giants 1.5 (+110)
