Odds from 

With both of these teams being fairly evenly matched and the starter for the Diamondbacks doing slightly better with Kelly on the mound it will be hard to bet against the visitors. Yes, I know the Diamondbacks are not that great of a road team, but look at the Giants they are only a game over the five hundred mark at home and that is not really that impressive. Still I look for the total in this game hitting the over as neither pitcher is really that cornerstone shut down pitcher like normal and that will definitely prove to be the case here.
