The National League West-leading San Francisco Giants are set to host the National League-Central-leading Chicago Cubs in an interdivisional matchup on Saturday to kick off the weekend. San Francisco is 2-0 against Chicago so far this season and has a good chance to improve to 3-0 in the third game of its four-game series against the Cubs. Let’s go over some of the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cubs vs. Giants, 7:15 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Giants -167

San Francisco’s rotation has been excellent this year and good pitching helped it field a top-five scoring defense. Kevin Gausman will draw the start and is 6-0 with a 0.81 WHIP and 1.40 ERA through 11 starts. The Cubs’ middling offense has managed to score seven runs through two matchups against the Giants, but Gausman has only given up 11 earned runs in 70 23 innings. Chicago’s Kohl Stewart has only pitched five innings in MLB all season and could struggle against a San Francisco side that’s tallied double-digits in hits for two straight games.

Player Prop: Javier Baez O.5 RBI (+185)

El Mago leads all Cubs with 39 RBIs this season. He’s tallied six in his last five games. Baez hasn’t recorded a hit in eight at-bats against the Giants but has only been held hitless for more than two games twice this season.
