  • The San Francisco Giants (32-34, 17-14 Home) host the Houston Astros (30-36, 13-18 Away) Monday night in San Francisco for Game 1 in a 3-day series.
  • The Giants are one of the more average teams in baseball while the Astros’ pitching woes have proven costly as of late. However, the Astros are one of the better batting teams in the league and could do some damage against a struggling San Francisco bullpen.
  • See the best picks for Monday’s game below.

The San Francisco Giants host the Houston Astros for the first game in a 3-day series Monday evening at 9:45 p.m. ET.

Both the Giants and Astros are under .500 this season, but enter Monday’s battle with some momentum. The Astros have won 4 of their last 6 including series wins over St. Louis and LAA while the Giants have won 3 of their last 4 with a series win over the Texas Rangers.

Houston Astros vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction (June 10)

As stated, both teams head into this matchup with some momentum and, despite losing records on both sides, are strong teams. Houston holds the significant advantage on offense. The Astros are No. 2 in the majors in batting average and sit top 5 in home runs, hits, Slugging and OPS. Finally, Houston has struck out less than any team in the majors.

The Giants will be throwing Kyle Harrison to start, a lefty with a 4.18 ERA and 65 strikeouts in 71 innings pitched. Harrison started this season well but has taken a noticeable step backwards, earning a loss in both of his last starts.

On the other side of things, Houston will start Spencer Arrighetti, who has gotten better as the season has progressed but still holds an ugly 5.79 ERA across 46.2 innings. He allowed just 2 hits and 0 runs against Seattle across 6 innings at the end of May and 3 hits in his last outing against St. Louis.

I like Arrighetti in this matchup, especially with Harrison facing one of the top batting lineups in the league. As you’ll see below, the over is the heavy trend favorite for tonight’s matchup as well.

SF vs. HOU pick: HOU ML (-115), Over 8.5 (-105)

The over/under total for Monday’s matchup sits at 8.5, with the under slightly favored at -115. Houston is addicted to the under this season while San Francisco is an impressive 22-10 against the over in games as the underdog (6-4 as the home underdog). Houston is 5-11-1 as the away favorite ATO.

Giants vs. Astros Best Player Props (June 10)

Player Props (San Francisco vs. Houston) Odds
Spencer Arrighetti Over 5.5 Ks +120
Jose Altuve O 1.5 Bases -105
Alex Bregman O 1.5 Hits + RBIs + Runs -140

All odds above via DraftKings Sportsbook. 

Arrighetti is coming into his own as a starter for the Astros. He’s surpassed this total in 3 of his last 4 games and has never faced a San Francisco batter, giving him the advantage. San Francisco isn’t the most strikeout prone team in the country, but I still like Arrighetti’s odds here.

Altuve is fresh off a 4-hit outing against Los Angeles and has been one of the best batters in the league for some time.

This is a safe leg for a parlay. Bregman has hit this total in his last 9 straight games and faces a Giants team that has struggled from the mound anyway.
