PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Jeff Samardzija (1-7, 4.63 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Junior Guerra (1-0, 1.84)

The Giants are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 14-3 in the last 17 meetings.

Samardzija is coming off his shortest start of the season, a four-inning effort Tuesday in which he allowed three runs and nine hits while striking out five against Washington.

The Giants are 5-16 in their last 21 road games vs. a right-handed starter.


PITCHING MATCHUP: Marlins RH Dan Straily (4-3, 3.56 ERA) vs. Cubs RH Eddie Butler (2-1, 4.42)

The Cubs are only priced at -117 here.

Marlins are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.

Butler has struggled to find consistency in four starts since being called up while Straily  has won his last three starts.

Blue Jays-Athletics

PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays LH J.A. Happ (0-3, 4.50 ERA) vs. Athletics LH Sean Manaea (4-3, 3.91)

Seven of the last eight in this series have resulted in eight or more runs.

Happ is still seeking his first victory in 2017 after a no-decision against Cincinnati on Tuesday.  Manaea, meanwhile, is 4-2 with a 2.92 ERA over his last seven starts and has allowed five hits or fewer in all nine outings on the year.

The OVER is 11-5 in Blue Jays last 16 road games.  The OVER is 6-1 in Athletics last 7 home games and  6-2 in Athletics last 8 home games vs. a left-handed starter.  The UNDER is 18-7-3 in Blue Jays last 28 road games vs. a left-handed starter.
