Why the Diamondbacks can pay on the MLB lines
Arizona will have a favorable pitching matchup in the series opener, with Zack Godley 5-4, 4.38 ERA opposing San Francisco’s Derek Holland 3-6, 4.94 ERA.
Godley’s numbers do not accurately show how much better he is than Holland, who has lasted more than six innings only once this season.

Why the Giants can pay on the MLB lines
The Giants have been a much better team at home than on the road, going 17-10 compared to 12-20, respectively. They are riding a five-game home winning streak at AT&T Park after losing thee straight there during the middle of May.
While Holland has been shaky at best on the mound for San Francisco, the team has managed to go 4-3 in his past seven outings, with him earning all three of his wins during that stretch.

Smart betting pick
The Diamondbacks have won 11 of the past 15 meetings, according to the OddsShark MLB Database, including four of six this season.
