(MLB) San Francisco vs. Pittsburgh, 05/14/2021 6:35 PM, Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: -143.00 San Francisco (Away)
Result: Loss
The set-up: I had a play on the "over" in yesterday's series opener here, and while that game up short, the Giants did go on to win and I look for them to carry that momentum over here with their "ace" on the mound. Gausman (3-0, 1.97 ERA), has an elite 47/12 K/BB over 45.2 innings for the Giants. So far he's given up over one earned run just once this season.

The pick: Tyler Anderson (3-3, 3.05) gets the nod for the home side. He's coming off a solid win over the Cubs on Sunday, giving up two runs over eight innings. As good as Anderson has been of late, I still give the nod to Gausman in this starting pitching matchup. The Pirates only average 3.41 RPG, while the Giants average 4.35. This is the very definition of "great line value" in my opinion.

This is an 8* DESTRUCTION on the Giants.
