Oakland A’s vs San Francisco Giants
Score Prediction

The Giants are hot and it is in large part because the bats have caught up to the pitching. Jeff Samardzija is an inning eating pitcher who will give up some runs and has a history of getting hit by Oakland. On the other side Daniel Mengden is about to run into a beast of an offense. In this game there is only one bet I am willing to make. I am taking over 7.5 runs.
