Arizona vs San Francisco by GameChanger
I personally can't see this being a high scoring game in any way and I'm little suprised that odds are so high on 6.5 under but I think that reason for that is hot Arizona weather and fact that this is season opener for both clubs.
Both clubs certanly have great offensive players but today on the mound will be two pitchers which could absolutley dominate in this game, they both have more than enough pitches and power to make this game a very very low scoring game. For Arizona on the mound will be Zack Greinke who had relativly bad 2015 season with lot of injuries and he had below average 2016 season with ERA of 4.37 and he had 13 wins that season and 7 losses. Greinke maybe had couple of bad seasons but when he was in Dodgers he was absouletly dominating in MLB, he has great pitching technique and I think that now when he doesn't have lot of injuries he will show what he can really do.
On the other side there is Madison Bugmarner who is after Kershaw best pitcher in MLB and some people would even say that he is better than Keshaw and he has two MLB titles with Giants in last 5 years. There isn't much to say about him, he is just dominating every year and he often has games in which he looks absolutley perfect, he doesn't walk often players and he is very very hard to hit.
When it comes to offensive power of both teams they are pretty good but I think that pitchers will dominate in this game, also both teams have really good defensive players, especially Giants shortstop Crawford and one of the best first basemans in the league Goldschimt who is dominating every year in first base for Arizona.
I think this is going to be very low scoring game, I was first leaning to Giants but Greinke in home opener looks to good to play against him and Diamondbacks. Both teams have good hitters but sometines it just doesnt matter because there will be a lot border strikezone pitches in this game and I expect lot of strikeouts from both pitchers.
My pick: UNDER 6.5
