The Giants are a -115 favorite at home.  Colorado was at +105.

The total was coming in at 7

What We Like:

  • The home team has won nine of the last ten meetings
  • San Francisco has won four of the last five in this series
  • Both starting pitchers coming off bad outings in their last two starts
  • Last five have fallen UNDER the current total of 7, all played in San Francisco
  • No move off the 7
  • Colorado on the road has not scored more than 2 points in their last five road games
  • Six of the Giants last ten games have resulted in 3 or fewer runs

What We Don't Like:

  • Better than 60% of action on Giants at -115 with the line having dropped from as high as -138
  • San Francisco has permitted six or more runs in Madison Bumgarner's two starts this season
  • Colorado allowed 8 runs in Kyle Freeland's last start

Though the betting action was 60/40 facing San Francisco, volume was insignficant enough that we could ride this one along with the public. 

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies LH Kyle Freeland (1-2, 5.40 ERA) vs. Giants LH Madison Bumgarner (0-2, 3.32)

Freeland is coming off an outing to forget as he surrendered a career-high seven runs on seven hits and four walks over five innings in a loss to Atlanta on Monday. The 25-year-old native of Denver has lost back-to-back starts after winning nine straight decisions dating back to last season. Freeland has had success against San Francisco in his career, going 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in eight turns.

Bumgarner also is in a funk as he has yielded five runs over six innings in each of his last two starts. The 29-year-old native of North Carolina, who is seeking his first win of 2019, escaped with a no-decision against San Diego on Monday but took the loss versus the Dodgers in Los Angeles six days earlier despite the fact all the runs were unearned. Bumgarner is 13-8 with two complete games, one shutout and a 3.04 ERA in 30 career turns versus Colorado.

We will be taking the UNDER 7 here

NFC Championship Betting – Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

NFC Championship Betting – Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

Any fan knows that the result of a regular season game is meaningless when it comes time to play the NFC Championship. But the San Francisco 49ers’ total annihilation of the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 is hard to overlook. Sure, the Pack hasn’t lost since that 37-8 setback, beating the Niners’ nemesis Seattle last week in the Divisional Round to advance to the conference title tilt in its first postseason appearance in three years. The Niners caged Aaron Rodgers and allowed very little in that November cover victory. Can Rodgers work some of his postseason magic against the heavily favored hosts on Sunday?
