Score: 1 - 2
Point Spread: +1½/+101 San Francisco
The San Francisco Giants get the nod Saturday against the Tampa Bay Rays. While I believe the Giants will win this game, I'm going to back them on the Run Line as an underdog still for some insurance.
San Francisco has quietly won three straight coming in. Tim Lincecum has lit it up in two of his last three starts, allowing two earned runs over 16 innings. David Price is simply getting too much respect from the books in this one. The left-hander is just 1-4 with a 4.18 ERA in seven home starts this season.
San Francisco is 20-5 against the run line (+13.7 Units) in road games vs. good fielding teams - averaging
