Giants Ready to Move Into Sole Possession of First in the West

Giants headed for exciting NL West race to end season

With the second-half of the MLB season underway, the Giants are headed right into a huge battle for the NL West title with the Dodgers. With the other three teams in the West being 12 games or more out of first place, this will be a two-horse race the rest of the way. San Francisco sends Tim Hudson to the mound tonight with a record of 7-6 and an ERA of 2.87. He is 14-4 against Miami in his career with an ERA under three over the past 10 seasons.

Marlins showed promise early, but have since faded

After an exciting start to the season for the Marlins, Miami has begun to fade into the NL East abyss. They will compete with the Phillies for which team will finish last in the division this season. The Marlins are still years away from competing despite having some young talent on their roster that has shown flashes of brilliance. One of those bright spots, Henderson Alvarez, will take the mound tonight.

When the Giants visit the Marlins on Saturday night in Miami, we will place our bet at Sportsbook.ag, where the Giants are road chalk. After a 9-1 win on Friday night, we will back the Giants with the OVER 7.5 total runs scored at +105 as we drop 15 percent of our bankroll on San Francisco.
