ARI (28-32) -130 u8.5 (-105) -1.5 (+145)

Prediction:

The prediction for this matchup is that the total runs scored will be under 8.5. Here are the reasons:

First, Jordan Hicks has been very effective on the mound for the Giants, boasting a 2.70 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. His ability to control the game and limit scoring opportunities will be a significant factor.

Second, while Jordan Montgomery has struggled with his ERA, the Diamondbacks' recent games have shown they can be involved in lower-scoring affairs. Additionally, the Giants' offense has been inconsistent, which could limit their scoring.

Third, both teams have shown tendencies to engage in low-scoring games. The Giants have averaged just over 3 runs in their last five games, while the Diamondbacks have also had several low-scoring contests.

Moreover, the weather and the time of the game could play a role in keeping the scoring down. With a high temperature of 96°F, the afternoon heat may affect the players' performance, leading to a slower-paced game.

Pick: Under 8.5 Runs (-105)
