Angels vs. Giants Prediction: Over 8 Runs -120

For the money line, we like the Giants to pick up a win at home, but at -179, the payout isn't great. Instead, we recommend taking the over, as we have this game ending with a 6-5 win for the Giants, giving us plenty of cushion on the over/under line of 8 runs.

Looking at the starting pitchers, Kyle Harrison is projected to finish with six strikeouts, which is good for eighth best among starters today. If you're looking for a starting pitcher to pick up a win, Harrison is 10th in our projections, and he is averaging to go 10th in innings pitched.
