Giants Continue to Keep Pace in NL West Race as Diamondbacks Visit

Giants leading NL Wild Card race

As they continue to chase the Dodgers in the NL West, the Giants hold the top spot in the National League Wild Card race. They are three games ahead of the Pirates, who are in the second slot, for the top Wild Card spot right now. The Giants are also just 3.5 games out of first in the NL West, which is still a race they can win. San Francisco sends Yusmeiro Petit to the mound for tonight's series opener with Arizona.

Off-season cannot come fast enough for Diamondbacks

The winter cannot get here quick enough for Arizona after a dreadful 2014 season in the desert. The Diamondbacks have won just 59 games, are percentage parts ahead of the Rockies for last place in the NL West and have already fired their general manager. Kevin Towers was removed from his post as general manager of the team and the coaching staff and manager could be the next to go. Arizona will need to make major changes to compete in 2015.

Arizona and San Francisco have played some fun games over the years in the NL West, but this year has been a disappointment in the division rivalry. We will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the Giants and the -164 money line at TopBet.eu as they take the opening game of this set from the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night in San Francisco.
