Pick of the Day for MLB: July 27

By Stefan Luciani

Alright, I’ll admit it, perhaps I was a little overambitious with Monday’s picks. But I said they were potentially a little wild from the start. Oh, well. It happens, we pick right back up and keep going.

Today I have my eyes on an NL matchup between the Diamondbacks and the Giants. Now the first reason I’m looking there is because of how tight sportsbooks have the odds between these two. Despite both clubs boasting losing records, I consider San Francisco far more competitive than the Diamondbacks.

The Giants come into this riding a six-game road skid having gone just 3-7 over their last ten games. Their biggest downfall has been their hitting where they collectively are swinging just .203. Down a veteran bat like Evan Longoria is a valued presence missing from that lineup. The D-backs on the other hand have been very average going 5-5 during that same stretch hitting .257 as a team.

Tonight is where things get the most interesting - the pitching matchup. Arizona is sending righty Zac Gallen to the bump who has boasted favourable numbers throughout the season thus far. He’s 5-2 on the campaign with a 3.31 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. With a 1.35 GO/AO, he’s a guy who’s good at keeping the ball in play and on the ground for his defense.

But he’s going up against Logan Webb who ultimately, has been just slightly better. Webb is 9-3 on the season with an ERA of 2.77 through 123 2/3 innings pitched this season. You think that’s good? He’s 3-1 in his last seven starts with 1.60 ERA allowing just eight runs through his last 45 innings of work.

So, what am I getting at? It looks like we may have ourselves another little pitchers’ duel here. The pick for today isn’t going to be just one, rather two separate picks that to me, are equally as critical.

The Giants will come out on top of this one, and although BetRivers has them at just -114, I still think that’s worth the risk. The under is where we’re looking to cash in here folks. Don’t get me wrong, it’s dicey at 7.5 for a baseball game. But that’s just all part of the fun.
