BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of San Francisco's last 6 games when playing as the underdog.

LA Dodgers are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Dodgers' last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.

Prediction

The Dodgers pounded Rodon and the Giants bullpen to take the win 9-6 in the first game of the series. They'll now send Tyler Anderson to the mound who having the best season of his career and the Dodgers are 12-3 when he has started. The Giants will try to tie this series by sending Logan Webb to the mound who dominated the Dodgers last season allowing only 2 runs in his last 20.2 innings against them so he should be able to slow down the Dodgers offense but the Giants will also struggle against Anderson. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
