Last year, the Giants had a good-not-great year. But given their recent success over the years, it felt like a huge letdown. They finished 84–78 (.518) and in second place in the National League West Division. This year, many feel they can take a few steps forward and compete for the Wild Card spot. Things look pretty tight in the division, and the Giants do have a shot at winning the division if the Arizona Diamondbacks and the LA Dodgers falter at all. The Giants, as a franchise has won 8 World Series titles, including 3 since 2010.
They have also won 23 NL Pennants, and 8 Division titles. They have also been the home for many Hall of Famers, such as Steve Carlton, Gary Carter, Orlando Cepeda, Rich Gossage, Randy Johnson, Juan Marichal, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Joe Morgan, Gaylord Perry, Duke Snider and Warren Spahn. They were also the home for He-who-we-will-not-speak-of Bonds.

San Francisco Giants Betting
If you’re looking to bet on an underdog in baseball, remember a bad team will still win 30 percent or 40 percent of their games. And the best teams will win 65-70%. If you bet on other sports like the NBA and the NFL, you’re not accustomed to seeing this happen so much.
So if a last place team is playing the best in a 3 game series, the lower ranked team will probably win at least one of those games.
Whereas in the other sports, the top teams in the league win up to 80 percent of their games throughout the season or may even go as high as 90 percent, and they also play much better at home. Baseball is more evenly distributed.
As for the Giants, their pitching staff will be armed with Jake Peavy, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija. They will be supported by a batting lineup featuring Denard Span, Joe Panik, Buster Posey, Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt, Matt Duffy, Brandon Crawford, Trevor Brown and Angel Pagan.
