The streaking Dodgers have gained ground on the Giants lately so San Fran will really want to dominate the Rockies at home as they continue their NL West matchup. Madison Bumgarner (9-4, 2.20 ERA) will give the Giants a decent shot to do that tonight against Tyler Chatwood (8-4, 3.15 ERA), who has been surprisingly good this year.
- The Rockies are 0-6 against the spread in their last 6 games.
- The Giants are 11-2 in their last 13 games with Bumgarner on the mound.
- The Rockies are 2-15 in their last 17 games with a closing total of 6.5 or less.
Although Chatwood’s numbers are a little inflated by his starts at Coors Field, his 1.25 road ERA is the best among qualified starters in the NL. He has turned his seven starts away from home into an undefeated 5-0 record. All of the sudden, the Giants don’t look like so much of a lock and +200 feels like insane value.
Bumgarner has been one of the most consistent starters over the last three seasons and this year has been no different. The Giants won ten straight games with Madison on the mound between April 25 and June 14. He has, however, been dinged up a little in his last two starts, and with the way Chatwood is pitching on the road, the Giants are at considerable risk to be upset tonight.
