Gambling911.com has your top exposure for Wednesday in Major League Baseball.  The Houston Astros are at -310 against the San Francisco Giants, so this is not one we encourage you to bet on.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Jeff Samardzija (1-2, 6.30 ERA) vs. Astros RH Justin Verlander (5-2, 1.05)

Samardzija did not factor in the decision against Colorado on Thursday after allowing three runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings.  He is 1-1 with a 3.51 ERA in six contests (three starts) at Minute Maid Park.

Verlander recorded the eighth shutout of his career last Wednesday, when he held the Los Angeles Angels to five hits while registering seven strikeouts in a 2-0 victory.

“Pretty much a clinic on how to pitch,” manager A.J. Hinch told reporters. “I mean, it’s just an epic performance by a really good pitcher.” 

He is making only his second start against San Francisco.

The Giants are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
