The Giants look to keep the improbable postseason push going with a big game one win on the road against the World Series faves. I told you a couple days ago I liked Toronto in a similar spot as they just came off the Wildcard game win and ended up blasting Texas who had been waiting days for them in game one. This has the same feel to me and the fact the Cueto has been lights out as of late, only makes me feel better about it.

The Cubs have a great chance to win their first World Series since 1908 and very likely will end up winning this series when all is said and done, but when you have a hot Giants team that fought to get in with everything they had the last two weeks, and getting this kind of value with the +$160, you simply have to pounce on it. The Giants confidence is sky high and they will take that into the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.

Look for S.F. to get to Lester early in a game where more runs than the so-called experts think will be scored. There will be some great back and forth, but in the end look for a big hit from Hunter Pence or Buster Posey to be the difference getting the G-men off to a great start in the NLDS.
