MLB Betting Prediction: Houston Astros vs. San Francisco Giants 6/10/2024

Houston Astros (29-35) vs. San Francisco Giants (31-33)

As Major League Baseball season winds down, two powerful MLB clubs, the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants will square off against each other on Monday June 10, 2024 for an eye-catching clash at Oracle Park at 9:45 pm ET. Both sides hope to establish themselves within league standings; for those participating in top online betting this game offers numerous intriguing angles considering recent performance trends as well as season statistics of both teams.

Houston Astros (29-35) have experienced mixed results lately. After an uncertain start to the season, they’ve managed a winning record in three of five recent matches (3-2), showing some resilience after suffering through some tough games early in 2018. With their team average hitting at.257 and a slugging percentage of.416, supported by 80 home runs, showing power at the plate; yet their pitching staff’s combined ERA/WHIP of 4.27 needs tightening up further to give their batters better chances in games against opponents.

Conversely, San Francisco Giants are in third place at 31-33 with slightly superior standings but have struggled recently, going 1-4 over their past five games and posting team statistics such as an average batting of.248 and slightly reduced slugging percentage (.384) than Houston Astros; their pitching has also performed similarly with an ERA of 4.47 and WHIP 1.35 showing slight disadvantage in terms of controlling opposing batters.

Spencer Arrighetti (3-5 W-L, 5.79 ERA) vs. Kyle Harrison (4-3 W-L, 4.18 ERA)

Spencer Arrighetti has had difficulty on the mound this season, evidenced by a dismal win-loss record (3-5) and high 5.79 ERA over 46.2 innings pitched. His 1.67 WHIP illustrates his frequent control issues; as he has allowed 52 hits and issued 26 free passes this season alone, this data points towards him struggling with managing the strike zone effectively. Arrighetti may have struggled, yet has shown the ability to overpower batters by recording 55 strikeouts which shows his effectiveness when finding his groove. However, his proclivity for giving up home runs (5 so far this season) and high on-base numbers puts him at risk against teams which know how to exploit those weaknesses. Therefore, the Astros depend heavily on him setting an aggressive competitive tone early in each game that they play against him.

Kyle Harrison provides the Giants with a more steady presence on the mound, boasting a 4-3 record with an ERA of 4.18 over 71 innings pitched and a much more respectable WHIP (1.39) to limit baserunners than Arrighetti did. Harrison boasts 65 strikeouts against 22 walks for solid control against the powerful Astros offense; yet, given he’s surrendered 77 hits thus far against them his ability to limit damage while pitch deep may determine their success or not.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

As betting odds for this matchup have yet to be set in stone, bettors will want to closely follow updates as game time nears. Performance from starting pitchers and team trends could play a vital role in shaping them accordingly.


Houston Astros Betting Trends

The Houston Astros appear to be making progress against early season struggles with a 3-2 record and slight positive trend against the spread in their last five games, though their less-than-stellar performance on the road (11-17 against the spread) should raise some concerns for bettors planning on backing them.


San Francisco Giants Betting Trends

Recent performance from the Giants has not been promising, posting an unimpressive 1-4 record both outright and against the spread in their last five matchups. Yet despite this stagnation, four out of their last five totals went OVER, suggesting high scoring contests are often common due to pitching issues.


Houston Astros vs. San Francisco Giants 6/10/2024 Betting Picks

Given recent performances and starting pitchers of both teams, this matchup could lead to high scoring action. Both clubs have struggled with their pitching staffs recently and could allow more runs than anticipated in this contest.

As both teams possess their respective vulnerabilities, the Astros may possess an edge due to their powerful hitting ability. Therefore, an ideal MLB winning pick might involve backing them for victory should their bats live up to expectations; prop bets with higher total runs may also prove appealing given trends and starting pitcher stats.
