San Francisco Giants are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games at home.
San Francisco are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games against an opponent in the National League.
The Diamondbacks continue to struggle and have lost 7 of their last 9 games and have been awful on the road with a 21-40 record. For this game they'll send Madison Bumgarner to the mound who has been decent in his last 2 starts but lost against the Gianst earlier this season. The Giants have won 5 of their last 7 games and will try to sweep the Diamondbacks by sending Alex Cobb to the mound who pitched 6 scoreless innings in his last start and has good numbers vs Diamondbacks in his career. The Giants have dominated the Diamondbacks this season so I'll side with them for the sweep. Take the Giants.
PICK: Giants -1.5 (-115)
