The Giants are locked in the most competitive and entertaining divisional game in baseball. They scored an important victory against the Dodgers on Sunday and currently hold a game lead in the West of the Netherlands.
Although playing 63-74 in the Rockies seems to be a relief, when you play in Denver, it is more of a curse. Luckily, the Giants have their expert on the hill, and the Rockies are moving with one of their back-end starters.
But in this case, the Rocky Mountains can still play value as a home disadvantaged. Let us delve deeper and find the best betting angle for this Labor Day game.
The Giants’ offense is in a slump
I don’t envy Giants fans now. Although they have been the best team in baseball throughout the season, perhaps the best team we have ever seen, they have lost 6 of the last 10 games and are fighting a mountain of Dodgers.
Recently, crime has attracted much attention. Specifically, in the past 30 days, they released wRC+ ranked 24th in MLB on the road. During that time, the Giants lineup was only 0.217 and the OPS was 0.685.
But the Giants play team baseball, and when the offense fails, the pitcher will lift them up. Last month, the Giants’ pitchers ranked second in FIP (3.28), xFIP (3.92), and WHIP (1.15).
Although the San Francisco rescue team performed well, they have thrown the most innings in the MLB bullpen in the past week (37 1/3 innings). In addition, in the past three games, the Giants have played an astonishing 15 2/3 innings with their bench players.
Fortunately, today’s start is explosive for the Giants this season, and maybe he can reset the bullpen today.
Starting pitcher: Kevin Gosman (RHP)
Although he has been a candidate for Cy Young throughout the season, the recent beginnings have shown that Gasoman is indeed human.
In the beyond eight games, Gausman’s SR is 4.58 and the whip is 1.48, while the Giants’ record in these games is just 4-4. Notwithstanding, his .357 BABIP and 3.45 xFIP showed that he was a bit unfortunate on these trips.
During this period, he had a big outbreak. Gossman scored 6 times in only 4 1/3 innings against the Pirates on July 24. Since that outbreak, his condition has been slightly better, even hitting more than 11 batters in every 9 innings.
