Game 3: Giants vs. Tigers Picks

Game 3 of World Series betting action continues on Saturday night at Comerica Park, as the Detroit Tigers take on the San Francisco Giants.

It’s amazing to think that the G-Men have been underdogs in both of the first two games of this series. They’re now bona fide favorites, but they are playing in a position that they haven’t been in these playoffs:

Game 2: Detroit Tigers @ San Francisco Giants Picks

The San Francisco Giants are just three wins away from claiming their second World Series in the last three years. They hope to cut that number down to just two when they take on the Detroit Tigers in MLB betting action.

2012 World Series betting action begins on Wednesday night at AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants will look to continue their magical run against the red hot Detroit Tigers.

The always exciting Game 7 of the NLCS is set to take place on Monday night at AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants will look to complete their comeback against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cardinals are never out of it until they’re out of it, and they have won six straight must have games dating back to last year’s playoffs. Amongst those games include one where they were once down to their final strike on two different occasions against the Texas Rangers,

Game 6: Cardinals vs. Giants Picks

The St. Louis Cardinals are going to take their second shot at closing out the NLCS on Sunday night at AT&T Park when they fight it out on the MLB betting odds against the San Francisco Giants.

The Cardinals really know that they don’t want this to get to a Game 7 on the road, but their bats are going to have to do better tonight than they did against Barry Zito on Friday night. Carlos Beltran was back in the lineup for Game 4, though he only went 1-for-4 in a very quiet night.
