There is potential for a low scoring game on ESPN when Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants visit A.J. Burnett and the Philadelphia Phillies. Burnett may be 6-9 with a 4.08 ERA, but he actually had an impressive seven straight Quality Starts before getting hit hard by the Braves in his last start in Atlanta. We like the chances of him bouncing back well at home here vs. a San Francisco offense batting only .239 vs. right-handed pitchers overall this season. As for Bumgarner, he was arguably the best southpaw in the National League for much of this season before hitting a lull that has seen him post one Quality Start in his last five outings. That Quality Start took place last time out at Miami though, and the Phils are batting .237 vs. lefties this year. The ‘under’ is 10-4 in the Phillies’ last 14 games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
Pick: ‘under’ 7½
