Cincinnati Reds: Matching the Reds Up Against the NL's Best (Giants Edition)

The Cincinnati Reds look like a World Series contender in 2013.

According to sportsbook.com, the Reds have the sixth-best odds to win the World Series next season at +1000.

Additionally, at +500, the Reds have the third-best odds to win the National League Pennant behind the Dodgers (+375) and Nationals (+375).

If the Reds are going to contend for the NL Pennant, they're going to have to get by some of the league's best teams.

In this four part series, I'll match the Reds up against the other NL teams that are ranked within  sportsbook.com's top five.

Position-by-position, each of these articles will determine whether the Reds have the edge, or whether the edge will go to the Dodgers, Nationals, Giants and Braves.

First up on the list is the defending World Series champs, the San Francisco Giants.
