We take a look at the betting lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for win total and to make the postseason for the San Francisco Giants.

The San Francisco Giants finished 2020 two games under .500, but that kind of qualified as a pleasant surprise compared to what was expected from them entering the year. Their 78-win pace was nine games ahead of their projected win total last March. Can San Francisco be as competitive again in 2021? Let’s take a look at the best betting option for the Giants’ win total line on DraftKings Sportsbook.

San Francisco Giants Over 75.5 wins (-106)

This is going to be really close, so bet on the side that gives you a little more profit; the under is at -118. The fear here is that the Dodgers and Padres are so dominant, no other team in the division even comes close to .500. But I think the Giants, with a very underrated lineup and a decent enough pitching staff, can churn out enough victories over the dregs of this division to hit 76 victories. On paper, the Giants look to be clearly better than the Rockies and the Diamondbacks.
