Money line (ML)

If you look under the hood of DeSclafani’s home numbers, you’ll find that he’s much better off than his base numbers suggest, and he’s due for a solid home breakout.

For example, DeSclafani has a 4.24 ERA at home and a 2.14 ERA on the road this season, but DeSclafani’s xFIP, K-BB%, and Home Run per nine innings are all better in San Francisco.

However, DeSclafani’s .289 BAbip at home (0.212 BAbip on the go) and 62.1% of the link at home (91.1% LOB% on the go) show that he was simply unlucky in San Francisco.

The opposite is the case with Lester’s home / street splits, as his pitching periphery is much worse away than at home. In fact, Lester has an 8.53 FIP on the road and a minus -1K-BB%.

What I’m getting at is this GIANTS (-200) is a fair price I would bet 1 piece on. If your standard unit is $ 100 I’d bet it GIANTS (-200) to hopefully make a profit of $ 50.

Tread Line / Against the Spread (ATS)

“LEAN” to the GIANT -1.5 (-105) for half a unit because we’re paying a pretty high price for the San Francisco money line.

That being said, the Giants have a winning ATS record at home and as a home favorite, while the Nationals have an ATS record of under 500 as a road underdog.

Over / Under (O / U)

CONSIST Even if Lester’s cracks in the street are terrible and Washington’s bullpen is nothing to brag about because San Francisco’s IL is far too long to have much confidence in the offensive.
