Our MLB analyst previews Sunday night’s nationally televised game between Arizona and San Francisco. Go inside to read this revealing betting article which concludes with a MLB pick.

Sunday Night ESPN MLB Game
The Diamondbacks and Giants will play the finale of a three game weekend series on Sunday night. The opening pitch at AT&T Park in San Francisco is slated for 8:05 PM ET, and it will be televised by ESPN. San Francisco won the first two games by scores of 6-2 on Friday and 4-2 yesterday afternoon. The Giants have gone 8-5 this year against Arizona. Current MLB odds has San Francisco as a -236 money line chalk, -107 run line favorite, and the posted total is 7.0.


Starting Pitchers
Archie Bradley will get the nod today for Arizona. Bradley has faced San Francisco once this year and was ineffective in that outing. He lasted just 4 1/3 innings while allowing 5 earned runs on 7 hits and issued 4 walks. During his last three starts overall, Bradley exhibited poor form, evidenced by a lofty 1.59 WHIP through that course of time.

San Francisco will counter with their ace Madison Bumgarner. The southpaw hurler has started six times against Arizona since 2015, and collected a brilliant 2.14 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Bumgarner has been dominant at AT&T Park this season, while compiling a terrific 1.99 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in ten starts. San Francisco is extremely profitable at 18-2 since 2015 when there’s a posted total of 7.0 to 8.5, and Bumgarner is their starting pitcher.


Noteworthy Trends
San Francisco is 7-2 in its last 9 games
Arizona is 2-11 during their previous 13 games
San Francisco is 30-15 in 2016 versus NL West teams in 2016
Arizona is 17-24 this year against the NL West
San Francisco is 25-5 since 2015 as a money line home favorite of -175 to -250, and amassed a sizable +3.0 run per game differential
Madison Bumgarner is 4-0 under the total in his prior 4 starts versus Arizona, and gathered a 1.93 ERA during those outings
Arizona is 8-1 over the total in its last 9 games
San Francisco is 9-3-1 over total during their previous 13 games


Final Take and Pick
Sometimes the best handicapping approach is to just keep things simple. San Francisco is hot and Arizona is not. The Giants will have an obvious decided edge tonight in regards to starting pitching. I like the home team to win this game by a lopsided margin for this MLB pick.
