Miami Marlins vs San Francisco Giants. The MLB pick for this game is the San Francisco Giants. The first game of this series saw San Francisco come from behind to defeat the Marlins and Alcantara, displaying tenacity. Going into Saturday, the Giants had won four straight games and had a better lineup than the Marlins. Arraez and De La Cruz were responsible for five hits in Friday’s defeat. There isn’t much else in Miami’s lineup that would make an opposition manager shudder. Even if Wood doesn’t go deep, the Giants should be able to win this game thanks to a weak Marlins pitching staff after playing some solid baseball recently. In this game, bet for the Giants at home. The San Francisco Giants will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
