Angels at Giants: odds, lines, tips and betting tips
MLB odds courtesy of BetMGM; For a full list, see USA TODAY Sports. The odds were last updated at 1:30 PM ET.
Giant 6, Angel 4
This is a tough question, surprisingly because of the offenses: The Halos rank fifth with 0.787 OPS versus righty pitching, and San Francisco rank 12th versus left-handed with 0.796 OPS, and both pitchers give up hard contact – or in Suarez ‘Case contact in general.
But I’ll take over the home team.
- Angel (+115)
- Giant (-129)
Given my optimism about the Giants, this is a better choice than the runline, even if it’s not as close to a double-up as I’d like it to be. However, if I recommend an action from this preview, it will BET the giants’ money line.
New to sports betting? A profit of $ 12.90 on the Giants money line would produce a profit of $ 10.
Run line / Against the Spread (ATS)
- Angel +1.5 (-189)
- Giants -1.5 (+155)
CONSIST on both. If you want to be bold and support the giants’ sneaky home trends, give this a try Giants -1.5 (+155).
New to sports betting? A profit of $ 10 on Giants -1.5 (+165) would produce a profit of $ 15.50.
Over / Under (O / U)
- Above 9 (-110)
- Below 9 (-110)
I hesitate to bet anything about the cap on these two offenses, but here’s a fun fact: The Giants are tied for a league high of 66.7% overs (14-7-5 over / under record) and were saddled with the fewest Unders in the majors according to TeamRankings.
I would throw one LICHTBETTE on Over 9 (-110).
New to sports betting? A win of $ 11 on Over 9 (-110) would result in a win of $ 10.
