Why should you bet on San Francisco?

The Giants are rolling now, and they have bats like Hunter Pence’s to thank for it. He hit three doubles on Sunday in the Giants’ 8-3 win over Colorado, as the team hit eight as a team, something they’ve only done four times since the franchise left the Big Apple to go west in 1958. Denard Span has returned from a hip injury to hit with power once again, and his solo shot gave the Giants some insurance on Saturday. They are most likely to start Albert Suarez in this game, with Matt Cain on the disabled list.

Why should you put your money on the Braves?

Despite the fact that the Braves aren’t even winning a third of their games, Williams Perez has pitched pretty well. His last time out, he went six innings, holding the Marlins to a couple of runs on seven hits, striking out three, and the Braves won, 4-2. So he gives the Braves a shot. There’s also Mallex Smith, whose bat is getting hotter with each passing week. It was his three-run triple that gave Atlanta the runs they needed to knock off overrated Giants starter Jeff Samardzija and outlast the Giants, 5-3. This is a young team full of energetic players, and as they build confidence, they will continue to surprise teams.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Braves are a plucky bunch, but the Giants are playing on another level right now, Monday’s game notwithstanding. I’m predicting a 6-3 San Francisco win.
