Ryan Castellani is coming off of a horrific performance where he gave up 8 runs (7 Earned) in a 15-6 loss to the Dodgers. Logan Webb is also coming off a really poor performance that saw him give up 6 runs in a shut out loss to the Athletics. Combined these pitchers gave up 14 runs (13 Earned) in 7.2 innings. The Giants are one of the better batting units and against righties, they have the 4th highest batting average while Colorado is middle of the pack in terms of batting average against righties. The Giants will likely get the job done in this matchup as they have a pitcher with better upside and also the superior batting unit but -190 might be a bit much considering the struggles Webb so I'm siding with the OVER on this one.
