Giants Look to Eliminate Cardinals in Five Games Thursday Night

Bumgarner and Giants one win from the World Series

We have seen this story before haven't we? The Giants are one victory from reaching another World Series. They won the Fall Classic in 2010 and 2012 and look to do so again in 2014. The Giants will hand the ball to the most dominant pitcher of this year's playoffs in Madison Bumgarner. He has pitched to a record of 2-1 with an 0.76 ERA in the playoffs this season.

Wainwright and Cardinals in desperate situation as game five awaits

Adam Wainwright will take the mound on Thursday night in the hopes of sending the NLCS back to St. Louis for game six. Wainwright has thrown just nine innings in his two playoff starts this year, requiring 200 pitches to do so. He lasted just 4.2 innings in game one of the NLCS, which was a loss at home to the Giants. Wainwright claims that he is healthy and that the issues stem from his mechanics. He also thinks that those mechanical issues have been fixed ahead of tonight's start in game five.

We will use the betting odds found at Sportsbook.ag to place our bets for game five on Thursday night. We are going to drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the host Giants and the -150 money line as they secure the NLCS crown and a berth in the World Series to face the Royals.
