15* NL Wednesday No-Doubt Rout on San Francisco Giants -120
San Francisco vs. Colorado,
04/11/2012 20:40 EDT,
Score: 8 - 17
Money Line: -120 San Francisco
Getting Tim Lincecum at this price tonight against the Colorado Rockies is an absolute gift from oddsmakers. Lincecum remains one of the best starters in the game today, and I look for him to continue his domination of the Rockies.
Lincecum is 8-6 with a 3.27 ERA in 17 career starts against Colorado. He has given up just 6 earned runs over 29 1/3 innings in his last four starts against the Rockies while going 3-1 in the process.
Colorado starter Jeremy Guthrie has posted average-at-best numbers throughout his career. He gave up 4 earned runs, 10 base runners and two home runs over 6 innings in his lone career start against San Francisco in 2010. He's no match for Lincecum.
The Giants are scoring 5.2 runs/game this season, while the Rockies are hitting just .180 and scoring 2.5 runs/game this year. Colorado is 11-31 against the money line after two straight games where they had 5 or less hits since 1997. The Rockies are 17-44 in their last 61 games as an underdog, and 0-8 in their last 8 home games. Take the Giants Wednesday.
