Game time is: 

Texas Rangers at San Francisco Giants
Wednesday, 7:57 pm Eastern – Fox

The World Series begins on Wednesday night in San Francisco as the Giants host the Texas Rangers in Game 1.  It is a great pitching matchup with Texas throwing Cliff Lee while the Giants counter with Tim Lincecum.  It is expected to be a great pitching duel with the lowest total we have ever seen for a baseball game.

The total on this game was 5.5 at SBG Global.

The Rangers will send playoff ace Cliff Lee to the mound on Wednesday.  He has been virtually unhittable the past two baseball seasons in the playoffs.  He dominated both Tampa Bay and the New York Yankees in the American League playoffs.  Most people believe he will dominate a weak hitting San Francisco team as well.  On the other side, the Giants will counter with Tim Lincecum who is a two-time Cy Young winner. Lincecum struggled early in the season but he was very good down the stretch for San Francisco and has been excellent in the playoffs.

The Rangers have the offensive edge as they were the best hitting team in the American League. They are led by Josh Hamilton who was the ALCS MVP.  The Rangers have a lot of power up and down their lineup which is one thing the Giants cannot say.  San Francisco got a great series from Cody Ross in the NLCS and he is a big reason they are here.  The Giants need someone else to step up if they are to score enough runs to beat the Rangers.

Here are the baseball betting statsfor Wednesday’s Game 1. The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Rangers are 8-1 in their last 9 interleague games as a favorite. The Rangers are 4-13 in their last 17 vs. the National League West. The Rangers are 4-0 in Lee’s last 4 starts. The Rangers are 0-9 in the last 9 meetings in San Francisco.

The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home underdog. The Giants are 6-2 in their last 8 interleague games vs. a left-handed starter. The Giants are 4-1 in Lincecum’s last 5 starts.

The Over is 4-1-1 in the Rangers last 6 overall. The Under is 12-4 in the Rangers last 16 vs. the National League West. The Under is 4-1 in Lee’s last 5 starts overall. The Under is 11-5-1 in the Giants last 17 overall. The Under is 5-1 in Lincecum’s last 6 home starts. The Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between the two teams in San Francisco.
