The San Francisco Giants are off to a slow start this season, going just 5-7 through their first 12 games, but they have a favorable matchup on Friday against the Detroit Tigers. 

Detroit won just two of its first nine games, and the team has struggled mightily on offense to start this season. 

Joey Wentz (0-2, 10.29 ERA) gets the ball for the Tigers in this game against Sean Manaea (0-0, 4.50 ERA). 

Here are the latest odds for this matchup:

Giants vs. Tigers prediction and pick

I love the Giants to win this game, as Wentz was knocked around big time in his last start, giving up five runs in 1.2 innings of work to the Boston Red Sox. 

Manaea struggled in his first outing of the season, but he settled in on April 8 against the Kansas City Royals, allowing just one run through six frames. 

So far this season, the Tigers are dead last in MLB in OPS and they have scored a league worst 33 runs. 

With Wentz on the mound, I don’t see Detroit putting up enough run support to beat this Giants team on Friday night.
