Giants over Cardinals

The Giants saw a six-game win streak come to an end in Saturday’s 4-0 shutout against the Cardinals. We like them to get back on track today and take the rubber match of this three-game set in St. Louis.

Giants lefty Carlos Rodon has pitched lights out early this season, with three consecutive quality starts and no more than two earned runs allowed in a single appearance. He’s also gone at least five innings every time and gives up very little contact.

St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright is looking good too, but he hasn’t been as consistent and made his last start 11 days ago. The Giants bats have been hot all week and should show up tonight. We’re on Giants moneyline in St. Louis.

Shohei Ohtani, Over 1.5 Total Bases

Odds: +135 at DraftKings

Ohtani continues to crush it with 11 hits over his last eight games. He’s also recorded at least two total bases in five of his last seven games. Overall, the Angels phenom is slugging .500 this month and showing plenty of pop night in and night out.

This is also a good pitching matchup for Ohtani with Oakland’s Frankie Montas on the bump. He’s been hit hard in two of his last three starts and Ohtani has had plenty of success, with a 1.145 OPS, two home runs and seven RBI in 18 lifetime at-bats against Montas. We expect him to have another strong performance tonight, and we’re on Ohtani Over 1.5 total bases in Oakland.
