San Francisco Giants Vs. San Diego Padres: F5 Runline
Logan Webb will take the mound for the San Francisco Giants as they take on Yu Darvish and the San Diego Padres. Webb has been very efficient in the first five innings this year, posting a 2.54 ERA while Darvish has been less than impressive with his 4.19 ERA. Regulated sports betting sites label the Giants as underdogs on the F5 for Thursday night.
Giants Vs. Padres F5 Runline Odds
San Francisco Giants -0.5 +105
San Diego Padres +0.5 -135
Not only is Webb solid in the first five, but the Giants as a team are the top F5 bet in the league. San Francisco is 81-51-20 on the season and is the single most profitable team while the Padres are 62-70-19 and are one of the 10 least profitable teams on the F5 this season.
The game starts at 4:10 p.m. EST and can be viewed on MLB.TV.
Colorado Rockies Vs. Los Angeles Dodgers: Rockies Team Total
Max Scherzer has been on an absolute tear recently having logged 36. 2 straight scoreless innings entering his matchup against the Colorado Rockies. MLB betting sites may have still set the Rockies’ total too high.
Colorado Rockies Team Total Odds
OVER 3.5 -110
UNDER 3.5 -120
The game will take place in Denver at Coors Field but the high altitude can’t affect the ball when it’s not being hit. During Scherzer’s scoreless inning streak, he has struck out 43.6% of his outs.
The game begins at 3:10 p.m. EST and will be airing on MLB.TV.
Minnesota Twins Vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Michael Pineda Strikeouts
Michael Pineda isn’t much of a strikeout threat. He has yet to record more than three strikeouts in a game since July and will be facing the team with the lowest K% in the MLB over the last month in the Toronto Blue Jays.
Michael Pineda Strikeout Total
OVER 3.5 +110
UNDER 3.5 -145
It’s tough to envision a scenario where Pineda has his best strikeout performance in over two months against the team striking out at the lowest rate. The (-145) odds have a little juice, but ultimately it should prove to be worth the investment.
The first pitch will be thrown at 7:40 p.m. EST and will be broadcast with MLB.TV.
