The ScoreMLB Thursday best bets: Giants to take opener in Arizona

We have a very light baseball card ahead of us Thursday. Six games are scheduled league-wide, only three of which are on the night slate.Luckily, a couple of plays really stand out. Let's dive into why.Giants (-145) @ Diamondbacks (+125)The Diamondbacks have quietly played solid baseball of late - at least offensively. They own a 7-5 record over the past two weeks and are teeing off at the dish.They performed remarkably well against righties in that span, recording a .404 wOBA (first in MLB) and .225 ISO (second).A soft schedule has helped - the Diamondbacks had series against the Marlins and Nationals, as well as games at Coors Field in that span - but they still deserve credit for taking advantage of the opportunities at hand.Against Alex Cobb and the Giants, I expect Arizona to come back down to earth.The Diamondbacks have been hitting with extreme power of late, ranking near the top of the league in ISO and hard-hit rate. The best way to suck the life out of that power is by keeping the ball on the ground. That's Cobb's bread and butter.Cobb has induced grounders at a whopping 63% clip this season, the best rate among all of the day's projected starters.He's striking out nearly 23% of the batters faced - solid but unspectacular - and generating just under three grounders for every fly ball allowed.Several of the D-Backs' best hitters - including Christian Walker and Ketel Marte - have struggled mightily with the sinker, which is Cobb's most prominent pitch. They've also seen little of Cobb's second-most-utilized pitch: the splitter.If Cobb can keep the Diamondbacks in check, the Giants' bats should be able to take care of the rest. Tommy Henry owns a putrid strikeout rate and allows a lot of fly balls, which plays into the hands of a San Francisco offense built on chasing power.Look for the Giants to get back in the win column Thursday night.Bet: Giants (-145)Yandy Diaz over 1.5 total bases (+110)Diaz checks every box imaginable in tonight's game against the Yankees. He's absolutely teed off on right-handed pitching all season, even more so away from home. He's facing a righty in Domingo German.Diaz owns a .492 wOBA and .324 ISO against righties away from the Trop. Now he finds himself in one of the more hitter-friendly locations: Yankee Stadium.German is predominantly a curveball pitcher. As you'd expect, Diaz absolutely feasts against the pitch.Last season, Diaz posted a .397 wOBA against the curveball, generating hard contact 60% of the time. He's picked up where he left off last year, owning a .575 wOBA and 57% hard-hit rate.In a premium hitting park against a pitcher who throws a ton of a pitch he excels against, expect Diaz to make real noise at the dish.Todd Cordell is a sports betting writer at theScore.
