One key stat is costing San Francisco Giants bettors big

Jul 10, 2013 |
It's official: The All-Star break can't get here soon enough for the San Francisco Giants and their anemic offense.

The Giants lost (again) to the New York Mets by a score of 7-2 Wednesday. The loss is San Fran's fourth in a row and the first time they've been swept by the Mets at home since 1994. The Giants have also dropped 14 of their last 16 games overall and sit in the basement of the N.L. West.

San Francisco just can't get runners across the plate and have had trouble doing so since June 23. After going 1-for-2 with runners in scoring position Wednesday, the Giants have just 13 hits in their last 102 ABs with RISP (runners in scoring position) since that date.

The awful stretch of play has put the Giants near the basement of the MLB money rankings having burned bettors for -17.24 units on the year.

The Giants will hope the San Diego Padres will cure what ails them as they open a three-game set in San Diego Thursday.
