HOU (30-36) -120 o8.5 (+110) -1.5 (+140)
SF (32-34) EVEN u8.5 (-130) +1.5 (-165)

Prediction:

The prediction for this game is that the total will go over 8.5 runs. Here’s why:

Both starting pitchers, Spencer Arrighetti and Kyle Harrison, have ERAs that suggest they are prone to giving up runs. Arrighetti's 5.79 ERA and WHIP of 1.67 indicate he allows many baserunners and has struggled to keep runs off the board. Similarly, Harrison's 4.18 ERA and WHIP of 1.39 show he has had challenges in maintaining low run totals.

Offensively, the Astros and Giants have shown they can produce runs. The Astros, with power hitters like Kyle Tucker, have demonstrated their ability to score in bunches, as seen in their recent games. The Giants have also had several high-scoring games, and their recent form suggests they can take advantage of Arrighetti's struggles.

The combination of vulnerable starting pitching and capable offenses makes the over of 8.5 runs a strong pick for this game. Expect both teams to contribute to a high-scoring affair at Oracle Park.

Pick: Over 8.5 Runs
