Giants 4,  Mets 2

Money line

Through 20 career games, Megill has held right-handed bats to a .559 OPS, while lefties have clobbered him for a .942 mark. San Francisco bats plenty from the left side and with authority and frequency at the top of the order.

Cobb was sharp in his first outing and is backed by a better-rested bullpen in the back end.

BACK SAN FRANCISCO (+102).

Run line/Against the spread

PASS: The Giants straight-up are a solid play.

Over/Under

The Under is 3-1 in the Giants’ last 4 and has hit in each of the Mets’ last 2 games.

Figure solid starting pitching in this one with two bullpens in solid shape. On a cold-weather night in New York, TAKE THE UNDER 6.5 (+100).
