The San Francisco Giants will try to bounce back from a disappointing 2022 season, where they went 81-81 and finished third in the NL West.

They made a couple of savvy lineup additions, adding outfielders Mitch Haniger and Michael Conforto. Both hitters are capable of adding a much-needed power boost, but they have dealt with significant injuries in the past.

The rotation suffered a major blow when ace Carlos Rodon signed with the Yankees. However, they added Ross Stripling, who is coming off a career year, along with Sean Manaea, who is a prime bounce-back candidate.

The bullpen is anchored by closer Camilo Doval, who has the potential to become one of the best in baseball. They also added Taylor Rogers, who has closing experience and will add depth to this group.

The Giants are in a tough division that includes two World Series contenders in the Dodgers and Padres, but this is an experienced team that can contend for a playoff spot. Let’s find out more about the Giants’ betting odds for the 2023 season.

Giants Top Betting Odds 2023

Giants MLB betting odds are current as of Jan. 18, at 10 p.m. EST, from Caesars Sportsbook.

  • Win World Series: (+5000)
  • Win National League pennant: (+3000)
  • Win NL West title: (+1100)
  • Win Total: Over 78.5 (-110) | Under 78.5 (-110)

The Giants are tied for 16th in World Series, eighth in the National League pennant, and third in NL West odds. Their season win total ranks 16th in MLB.

It’s hard to envision a scenario where the Giants win the World Series or even the NL pennant, but there’s some value in taking them to win the NL West, even with the Dodgers and Padres.

The best play on the board here is taking the Over on San Francisco’s win total at 78.5. This is a well-managed team that often brings out the best in its players. Even in a down year last season, they still won 81 games.

Over 78.5 Wins (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

We mentioned that the Giants finished 81-81 last year — they’re also only one year removed from a 107-55 season.

This is a lineup that doesn’t look great on paper, but with the way they platoon their bats to get more value, it ends up being in the top half of baseball.

Expect hitters like Joe Pederson (great vs righties) and J.D. Davis (lefty masher) to be productive whenever they’re in the lineup.

While San Francisco finished with a 104 wRC+ (14th) last year, let’s not forget that they ranked fifth in 2021. We can expect this offense to cause some problems for opposing pitchers.

It’s also worth noting how successful this regime has been at reforming pitchers. Think of names like Kevin Gausman, Carlos Rodon, and Anthony DeSclafani. Each of them performed well in San Francisco.

That means we can expect more success from Stripling and project improvement from Manaea, who struggled with San Diego last year.

This is a team that is good enough to approach 90 wins, so I expect them to fly Over this number.

Giants to Win NL West (+1100) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Unit

San Francisco finishing first in the NL West would be a surprising outcome, but it’s a worthy longshot bet for one simple reason: they’re only one year removed from accomplishing this feat.

Here’s what needs to happen for the Giants to win the division once again:

  • New free agent additions Haniger and Conforto need to add power to the lineup.
  • Manaea and Stripling have to outweigh the loss of Rodon.
  • The bullpen has to perform as one of the best in MLB.
  • The Dodgers and Padres each need to have down seasons.

When you consider that the Giants have an underrated offense, strong pitching depth, and a good bullpen, you can see that this result is within their range of outcomes.

At +1100 odds, it’s absolutely worth the sprinkle.

Giants Player Prop Bets 2023

Logan Webb to Win NL Cy Young (+2500) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Unit

Webb is the only viable player prop worth taking on the Giants.

Let’s take a look at his best season, which was in 2021:

  • 148 IP
  • 3.03 ERA
  • 1.11 WHIP
  • 20.5 K-BB%
  • 3.13 SIERA
  • 12.4 SwStr%
  • 4.1 WAR

These are numbers worthy of a legitimate ace. Despite the modest volume (148 IP), Webb was still worth 4.1 WAR.

That year, he had a career-high 26.5 K%. If he can get back to that level while maintaining last year’s bump in volume (192.1 IP), we could see a Cy Young candidate.

At +2500 odds, you have to love the value here.

How to Bet Giants Moneylines

Moneyline bets are a simple way of wagering on MLB games. All you need to do is pick the winner of the game, and you’ll win your bet.

The odds are quite easy to understand, too. For example, if the Giants are a (-200) favorite, you would have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.

These odds will change every day depending upon the Giants matchup, so there’s always an opportunity for value every step of the way.

How to Bet Giants Run Line

Run Line betting is another common way to bet on MLB games, and you’re probably already familiar with it. You may know it as how much a team is “picked by" to win.

If the Giants are 1.5-run favorites over the Diamondbacks, the Run Line would look something like this: Giants -1.5 (+150) vs Diamondbacks +1.5 (-150).

In this scenario, the Giants would have to win by more than one run to cash your bet.

How to Bet Giants Over/Unders

If you’re unsure about the Giants’ moneyline or run line on a given day, you can still place a bet on the Over/Under — or total — in the matchup.

Sportsbooks will set a line for how many combined runs they project will be scored. From there, you can bet on the Over or Under.

For example, if you believe in the Giants’ offense and think it’ll be a high-scoring game, then you’ll want to take the Over. However, if it’s supposed to be more of a pitcher’s duel, you should go with the Under.
