The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants are locked in a battle for a spot in the MLB postseason. Heading into tonight's game, the Giants hold the top spot in the wild card race, but are only 2.0 games ahead of the Diamondbacks.
The first two games finished with a final score of 4-3, with each team securing a win.
How will tonight's game shake out? Let's find out what the oddsmakers think.
Diamondbacks vs. Giants odds, run line, and total
Diamondbacks vs. Giants prediction and pick
The Diamondbacks are significant underdogs tonight, largely due to the fact they'll be rolling with Slade Cecconi, who will be marking his Major League debut.
Sure, Cecconi will be making his debut, and sure his AAA this numbers have been pretty rough (6.38 ERA), but I'm going to zig when everyone else is zagging and I'll trust the Diamondbacks as underdogs in this spot.
If there's one team that the 24-year old can perform well against in his debut, it's the Giants. Their offense has been terrible of late. Over the past 30 days, they have the worst batting average in the majors at .212. Their OPS isn't much better at .641. They also have the fewest runs scored over that time span at 82.
Let's believe in the young arm tonight and take a shot on the Diamondbacks as significant underdogs.
