With a little over a month left in the 2018 MLB regular season the (72-58), Arizona Diamondbacks cling to a one-game lead over Colorado in the NL West. Arizona went 3-2 in a recent homestand avoiding a home sweep by Seattle in Interleague action with a 5-2 win Sunday, August 26th.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy will send right-hander Chris Stratton who’s 8-7 with a 5.37 era to the pitcher’s mound Monday. The Mississippi native has not had a successful outing since a 4-1 victory over the Dodgers on June 17th.

The Opening Betting Line has Arizona as a +155 road underdog. The betting odds total is seven and a half runs for Monday’s contest.

Arizona is 3-7 the last ten against San Francisco this season, and manager Torey Lovullo understands what’s at stake in late August. Diamondback fans watched their team get in the 2017 postseason as a wildcard where they beat Colorado but got swept by the Dodgers, so it’s important to win the division and establish the home-field advantage. And a lot will determine the next seven games. Left Hander Patrick Corbin who leads the staff with one hundred and ninety-eight strikeouts gets the ball tonight; the Diamondbacks have come out on the winning side in seven of his last eight starts including a 6-3 home win vs. San Francisco earlier this month. Slugger Paul Goldschmidt went deep in Sunday for his 30th of the season, and he should feel comfortable at the plate vs. San Francisco pitching with the betting odds over the total coming in four of the last five between the teams. Bovada.Lv, list the Arizona Diamondbacks at 6/5 to win the 2018 National League West division.

The 2018 season started out reasonably well for San Francisco who are now eight games behind first-place Arizona and are 8 and a half games out of the wildcard spot. San Francisco has a winning record both at home and against National League West division opponents. Injuries to catcher Buster Posey and starting pitcher Johnny Cueto, both out for the season along with a list of casualties that has made it an uphill battle for the Giants. Since the All-Star break, San Francisco has had two four-game losing streaks that have cost them dearly, but they managed to take two of three from Texas this past weekend. They’ll host Arizona for three before the Mets come to town, then it’s a six-game road trip beginning in Colorado and ending in Milwaukee Sunday, September 9th. The Giants must start to play with a sense of urgency if they are to close the gap or they’ll be facing elimination soon. Bovada.Lv list the San Francisco at 125/1 to win the 2018 NLCS.

Baseball Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (60-56) Pittsburgh Pirates, are 3-1 on their current road swing after taking two of three at Colorado and putting up ten-runs last night in a victory in the Bay Area. Manager Clint Hurdle will hand the ball to right-hander Clay Holmes who got his first career win at home on July 14th at PNC Park vs. Milwaukee. The Dothan, Alabama native has two appearances in a starting role with a 3.65 earned run average. Although San Francisco is still in the playoff race doesn’t mean Bruce Bochy is taking anything for granted, after all, they’re seven games out of the divisional and wildcard race. Injuries have decimated the pitching staff this season the latest casualty being starter Johnny Cueto who’s out for the season while Jeff Samardzija is set to return later this month. The prolific pitching rotation is what brought three World Series in six years to the franchise from 2010-14. Even 2014 Ace Madison Bumgarner has been a casualty appearing in just twelve games in 2018 but is slowly returning into form, and they’ll need at his best down the stretch. Game time is 10:15 PM EST at AT&T Park near the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a +110 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight and a half runs for Friday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a chance to get reacquainted with Andrew McCutchen who roamed the outfield in a Bucs uniform for nine-season and lead the Giants with forty-six runs batted in his first season in San Francisco. After Thursday’s win, Pittsburgh is now a .500 team road team and with three more vs. The Giants and then two in an interleague series in Minneapolis should have them playing with more confidence; they’ve also won eight of their last ten away from home. Outfielders Corey Dickerson along with Gregory Polanco are leading the Pirates in five broad hitting categories while Starling Marte and Josh Harrison are also contributing with consistency. The Pirates are behind St.Louis, Milwaukee, and just seven games behind the first place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Pittsburgh is also positioned for the top Wildcard spot in the National League, putting teams on notice are the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at 60/1 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

San Francisco is 1-5 their last six overall, making matter worse is their 2-8 record when playing in front of loyal fans at chilly AT&T Park on the bay. The good news is they’ll have their best starting pitcher in 2018 on the mound tonight. Left-hander Derek Holland has only five wins t to his credit this season with his last four outings resulting in no-decision games, he’s also been used in a reliever role, but San Francisco is 8-3 their previous eleven when Holland gets the start. Bochy hopes he can stop the bleeding to a team that desperately needs a victory. San Francisco will hit the road playing ten games in eleven days from August 13th beginning in Los Angeles and the finale in the Big Apple vs. The Mets. Shortstop Brandon Crawford along with McCutchen have been models of consistency this season playing in nearly all games. Crawford has a team-best one hundred and eleven hits. Bochy understands what it takes to win, and the Giants have the talent and composure to make a run at a playoff berth; don’t count them out. Bovada.Lv, list the San Francisco Giants 40/1 to win the 2018 NLCS.
