ACTION on pitchers: Earliest Cash - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #921 Wednesday 8* OVER the total in Texas Rangers vs San Francisco Giants @ 2:05 ET - Here in Vegas where I reside, big sportsbooks like Westgate have retained the policy started last season that has all MLB bets as action on the pitchers so this includes run lines and totals in addition to the traditional money line bets. That said, I like the over in this match-up no matter who pitches for the Giants and even if the Rangers Kyle Gibson gets scratched. The fact is that Gibson will be making his 2nd starts since being out with a groin strain but if the Rangers ace got scratched the point is that certainly would not bother us. I am not expecting that of course but what I am expecting is that Gibson will struggle some here. The Giants hit him better than his line score would indicate when they faced him last month at San Francisco. Also, he has been a little more hittable in day games than night games. The over is 3-0 in his last 3 starts and despite all his impressive stats this season, look for Gibson's over trend to continue here. The Giants are starting Zack Littell but southpaw Sammy Long is expected to see a lot of work too. Like I said, especially in a game like this that is essentially a bullpen game for the visitors, I could care or less who starts for San Francisco. With yesterday's game totaling 14 runs, the over is 7-3 last 10 Giants games and the Rangers have had just 1 under last 5 games. More of the same expected here. 8* OVER the total in Texas

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
