Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING DOWN

Before the season, the Giants were projected for 71.8 points (average per simulation) but it does not look like they are going to reach that. On 3/25 they had a 71.9% chance before dropping to 62.8% on 5/21 (streak start). From the start of the season to now their projected point total is down to 63. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the NL at 0.4% (250/1 odds) and a 0.2% chance of winning it all (500/1).

Giants' Season Forecast Changes

Sportsline not only has a pick on every game and line our Experts provide winning Daily Fantasy Optimal Lineups every day.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C

At 21-29 the Giants are behind their money line projected win total of 22.6 wins. They have 16 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 12 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game, or a 5+ final margin). They have come up especially short at home. Their 10-16- home record is -10% lower than their expected win percentage. Losers of 3 in a row they have a 40.8% chance of seeing that extend to 5 straight. In simulations where the Giants played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 39.9% of the time (#27 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #23 winning 44.5%.

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average run differential is -1.38 which ranks #14 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #13. They are the #13 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #15 ranked team among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 12 games is -2.67 which ranks them #15 over this stretch, slightly worse than overall.
