MLB Betting Lines – Free Pick: Posey is 7-11 vs. Hamels as Giants Look for Sweep

Another free pick for today we just could not resist is the San Francisco Giants EVEN or 100 at Sportsbook.ag.  They are on the road in Philadelphia.

This is an afternoon game so get your bets in early.

San Francisco has won 6 of their last 7 games overall and five straight against Philadelphia.  A win here would result in a sweep.  The Phillies have won just one of their last eight games overall.

Giants RH Tim Hudson (8-6, 2.78 ERA) is 11-9 record with a 3.72 ERA against Philadelphia.  This is his best performance against any NL East opponent.

Phillies LH Cole Hamels (4-5, 2.83) is one of that club's best starters, however, he has not gotten much run support and, as such, this has accounted for his under .500 record in 2014.

Buster Posey is 7-for-11 with four doubles and a home run against Hamels.

Philadelphia closer Jonathan Papelbon blew the save on Tuesday and lost the following night so look for the Phillies to try and get Hamels to go the distance Thursday night.  Whether that happens remains to be seen.  Hamels has not given up more than three runs over the past two months.  

Word to the wise, the OVER 6-1-2 in Hamels' last 9 home starts.  That said, the OVER is also 7-1-1 in Hudson's last 9 starts overall.

The Phillies are 1-4 in Hamels' last 5 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150 while the Giants are 9-3 in Hudson's last 12 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance and 4-1 in his last 5 road starts.

Pitching

Miami’s Henderson Alvarez is 0-2 when starting against Atlanta with an ERA of 6.67.

The Chicago Cubs Edwin Jackson is 0-5 when starting against San Diego with an ERA of 6.95 and a WHIP of 1.818.

The Mets Dillon Gee is 0-3 when starting against Milwaukee with an ERA of 6.75 and a WHIP of 1.616.

Milwaukee's Matt Garza is 0-0 when starting against the New York Mets with an ERA of 1.93 and a WHIP of 1.071.

Cleveland's Corey Kluber is 4-1 when starting against KANSAS CITY with an ERA of 3.33 and a WHIP of 1.071.

Minnesota's Phil Huches is 4-1 when starting against the Chicago White Sox with an ERA of 2.78 and a WHIP of 1.037.

Max Scherzer is 3-1 when starting against the LA Angels with an ERA of 2.16 and a WHIP of 0.900.

Garrett Richards is 2-0 when starting against Detroit with an ERA of 0.00 and a WHIP of 0.643.

Team

San Francisco is 3-0 vs. Philadelphia so far this season.

Minnesota is 5-2 vs. the Chicago White Sox this season.
