Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Francisco Giants

Friday, April 19, 2024 – 10:10 PM ET at Oracle Park

The AI Model likes the Diamondbacks on the road against the Giants tonight. Although the Diamondbacks are +110 on the moneyline, our AI Model believes Arizona will earn a 5-3 victory over the Giants. With two top-tier pitchers on the mound who just signed contracts this off-season, this game could be an interesting one.

Montgomery’s Mission

The Arizona Diamondbacks signed Jordan Montgomery at the beginning of the season. He was holding out for something better but was never able to earn the massive deal he was looking for.

That said, Montgomery held batters to a .143 ISO and wOBA of .304 last season. He also held teams to a 22.6% flyball percentage. He’ll be in line to face a Giants team that has struck out 23% of the time against lefties since last season.

What Happened to Blake Snell?

On the other hand, it’ll be Blake Snell for the Giants. He’ll throw his third game of the season. However, the first two weren’t great. He’s already allowed a .280 ISO and wOBA of .437 to 29 righties. He’s also added 13.8% of walks to righties.

The Pick

That said, the Giants’ righties have hit a .200 ISO and woBA of .377 against lefties since last season. The projected lineup has eight of them, and those eight have also struck out only 18.4% of the time against lefties.

I agree with the AI Model. Back the Diamondbacks as minor underdogs.
