The Giants vs. Nationals betting line had Washington as a -201 favorite, too high a price for us to make a pick on Washington. 


We would only consider the total here unless of course the Giants look promising.

Only four of the last ten meetings between these two teams has resulted in UNDER the current total of 8.

Starting Pitchers

PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants LH Drew Pomeranz (0-1, 3.86 ERA) vs. Nationals LH Patrick Corbin (0-0, 2.84)

Signed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal in the offseason, Pomeranz has allowed two runs in each of his three starts this season but hasn't received much run support from his offense. The 30-year-old settled for a no-decision on Friday despite scattering four hits while striking out five over five innings versus Colorado. Pomeranz, who will make his 200th career appearance on Thursday, owns a 2-0 mark with a 2.19 ERA in two starts versus Washington.

Corbin has yet to record a decision this season despite surrendering just six runs in three starts (19 innings) and registering 20 strikeouts over the last two. The 29-year-old owns an 8-8 mark in 25 career appearances against San Francisco, although he is 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA in his last seven starts. Corbin has kept Evan Longoria (2-for-11) and Joe Panik (1-for-13) in check, although Yangervis Solarte (6-for-16) has gotten his licks in on the hurler.
