1* Over Dodgers/Giants (10:15 ET): I realize that when you have two pitchers the caliber of Zach Greinke and Tim Lincecum going against one another, the natural tendency is to go Under. But in this particular instance, that would be a mistake. As I've said before, too many things have to "go right" to stay Under a total this low. With the Dodgers slightly favored, there's always the chance the Giants will come up to bat in the bottom of the ninth, meaning three additional outs would need to be recorded. You'll also notice the high juice on the Over here, reflecting that the early bettors seem to agree with me on this one. Take the Over.
Then you have the fact San Francisco came into yday averaging 6.1 rpg their last seven. They were shut down by Cole Hamels Thursday as I expected (cashed a 10* on the Phils), but I can see them bouncing back here against Greinke, who has never been the same pitcher on the road throughout his career. In his last start, at St. Louis, Greinke allowed four runs in just 5 2/3 IP and also walked five batters.
Lincecum made history in his last appearance and it wasn't a start. He came out of the bullpen to earn a save in Tuesday's marathon win. While he only worked two-thirds of an inning there, don't be surprised if it throws him off somewhat. I understand that his team is a pennant race, but Bruce Bochy hasn't exactly managed his rotation in the best way since the Break. 1* Over Dodgers/Giants.
