It’s been a tough start to the MLB season for the San Francisco Giants. With nearly one fifth of the season gone they’re seven games behind .500 and looking a shadow of the team that won three world series in five years at the start of the decade. Are they the professional betting tips to slump further?
Professional Betting Tips: Reasons Giants could turn it around
Chief among the problems the Giants have suffered is a lack of run production. Through May 3 they had the worst run differential of all 30 teams in the MLB and that coupled with a bullpen that was prone to blow up in one run games left Giants fans frustrated.
However, things are starting to look up. Despite not getting a decision, both Ty Blach and Jeff Samardzija have delivered quality starts in their last two outings. Blach was unlucky to see Melancon blow a save which would have delivered him the win while it took extras again for the Giants to deliver the win on May 4 after the Shark had thrown eight innings for just one run. Matt Cain has also defied his critics to look a solid fifth starter.
If the Giants can start making contact with their at bats then they have to be professional betting tips to start winning games. The outlook is promising too – Joe Panik has been reliable, Buster Posey has been starting to find hits and rookie Christian Arroyo has had a very promising start since being called up from the minors to make his debut at 21.
San Francisco Giants in May
The Giants have six games on the road coming up against Cincinatti Reds and New York Mets (who have been in horrific form of late themselves) before a six game home stand against the Reds and division rivals LA Dodgers. If they can emerge from those 12 games with a better than .500 record then it might just be May is indeed the month the Giants might become professional betting tips to make the post-season once more.
