Texas Rangers vs San Francisco Giants - Free Pick (David Hess)
It isn't often that you see an O/U line this high in a San Francisco home game. Oracle Park does not yield many runs but it has been a bit different this year. San Fran home games have averaged 12.20 rpg this year when normally you will see that number at 8.0 rpg or less. I do not feel that this will be a high-scoring game. the Rangers still have one of the worst offenses in the league and while Jeff Samardzija is off of a rough outing, he should be able to keep the punchless rangers at bay. The rangers will trot out Kolby Allard and while he has not been great in his career, the Giants have not faced him before and that should give Allard an edge here. The Giants have averaged 6.60 rpg at home and that can't continue. I will look for Allard to shut them down in this one. The Under 10-2 in Texas' last 12 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter and 12-3-1 in San Francisco's last 16 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. Take the Under in this one.
