There is plenty to like about the San Francisco Giants and their prospects with the baseball betting odds this season. The Giants showed tremendous courage and determination in rallying from far back to overcome the San Diego Padres for the National League West Division championship.
While the Giants have always been known for the superb pitching it was the batting order that proved itself down the stretch as a key asset and contributor to the Giants World Series Championship.
The Giants have been run with expertise in the front office and have wisely locked up their pitching rotation with contracts that will extend for years to come which makes for a bright future as well as potential overlays with the general betting public.
While Tim Lincecum and the starting staff garner plenty of attention closer Brian Wilson is among the very elite in the game and his 48 saves last year tied a team record. In their September pennant rally the Giants went 18 consecutive games in which their pitching staff permitted no more than 3 runs in any game.
One point of concern with the starting rotation is Barry Zito, the 5th starter who had a horrible second half of the season with an earned run average well over 6.50.
Arizona is one of the least appealing teams with the baseball lines but does have a sense of direction as they are putting together a coherent rebuilding program after wallowing without direction the past two seasons. Justin Upton is a man to watch in the batting order.
The Diamondbacks were a +8000 long shot at Sports-Gambling to win the World Series while San Francisco was a +1400 betting baseball favorite to win the Fall Classic.
