San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

Heading into Monday’s NL West matchup between San Francisco and Arizona, the Giants are the favorites on the moneyline. However, I feel strong enough about San Francisco picking up the win that I recommend taking them to win by multiple runs. Look for the Diamondbacks to struggle offensively against Carlos Rodon, who has given up just 2 run over his last 4 outings. I like San Francisco on the runline.
