We mentioned on Friday how bad the Giants offense is against right-handed pitchers (88 wRC+, .298 wOBA), turns out they’re just as bad if not worse against southpaws with a wRC+ of 87 and .297 wOBA.
Enter Patrick Corbin, left-handed starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks:
- 161.2 innings pitched
- 198 strikeouts
- 5.08 K/BB
- 3.17 ERA
- 2.37 FIP
- 2.62 xFIP
- 2.90 SIERA
The opposing pitcher Chris Stratton sports a K/BB of 2.02 and an ERA of 5.37. There’s not much more I need to see to place a wager on the Diamondbacks here.
You have to pay a little extra juice, but not nearly as much as I believe the book should be charging.
The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -168 vs. San Francisco Giants
