San Francisco vs Pittsburgh
Team match up: Pittsburgh Pirates lost series against LA Dodgers, but they are not bad team, they won home series against Philadelphia and I think that they will be very aggressive today. As I said already, they are the team who is playing every year better and better and last year these two teams, each won away series. San Francisco played yesterday against 49 year old Moyer. They won, but I was expecting something more. They didn’t impress me, even if i think that they have better offense than last year.

Pitching match up: Cain lost his first start this season. He pitched 6 innings and he allowed 2 home runs to Arizona Diamondbacks. His ERA this season is 7.50. On other side we have McDonald, who won his first game against Philadelphia Phillies and I expect from him to help Pirates to win another game here. Both pitcher have similar record against their today’s opponents and I think there is not such a big difference today. I also don’t trust Cain after such a performance in Arizona.
Key trends: Giants are 1-5 in Cains last 6 starts during game 1 of a series. Pirates are 4-0 in McDonald’s last 4 starts during game 1 of a series.
Reason for pick: I think this odds are too high on Pirates. Mcdonald showed some really good pitching in first game this season and Cain will have to show us something more, before we can trust him, especially for this price. Pittsburgh is better team, that current numbers show us.
