Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Francisco Giants prediction

Usually Martin Perez and plus money is a good bet because he is an above average all star caliber pitcher. However, the Pirates can’t score runs, so it doesn’t really matter how well Perez pitches. The San Francisco Giants have pt together a decent week, they’re coming off a walk off win last night and Jordan Hicks has been great through 28 innings. Not sure how long it lasts, but I’m going to back the Giants at home with Hicks on the mound.
