Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Saturday. The Dodgers took the win again 5-1 in the second game of the series and are 4-3 against the Giants so far this season. Bellinger's grand slam broke a tie in the eighth inning to win the game.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 48-45 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.80 runs per game and they're batting for .238 AVG, 416 runs scored in 689 hits and 105 home runs, ranking #3 in offense in the league behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Joc Pederson leads the team with 17 home runs and 41 RBI. Yastrzemski is batting for an average of .269.

Defensively they are allowing 4.24 runs per game and rank #14 in the league. Carlos Rodon allowed 5 runs across 5 innings against the Dodgers. He leads the pitching staff with a 2.95 ERA, 138 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Wood (6-7, 4.20 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 3rd game of the series. Wood pitched 4.2 innings against the Brewers, giving up three unearned runs on four hits and seven strikeouts, although he did not factor in the decision. He is 2-3 with an ERA of 3.35 and 49 strikeouts in 9 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 56-29 record and have won 9 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.13 runs per game and they're batting for .253 AVG, 405 runs scored in 693 hits and 102 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .303 AVG. and 18 home runs. Trea Turner has 59 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.26 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.62 ERA, 80 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Julio Urias (8-6, 2.89 ERA)

Urias will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Urias earned the win over the Angels on Saturday by allowing one run on five hits and striking out eight batters in seven innings. He's won five of his last six starts after getting rather unlucky with decisions early in the campaign. He has a 3-4 record with an ERA of 2.45 and 92 strikeouts in 22 appearances versus the Giants in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of San Francisco's last 8 games played on a Saturday when on the road.

LA Dodgers are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Dodgers' last 6 games against an opponent in the National League.

Prediction

The Dodgers are on a hot streak as they have won 9 straight games at home and 13 of their last 14 games overall. They'll send Julio Urias for this game who has dominated the Giants this season allowing only 2 runs in 12 innings. The Giants couldn't do much against Tyler Anderson and the Dodgers bullpen and are going with Alex Wood for this game who has been solid lately allowing only 1 run in his last 16.2 innings pitched. This should be a close game but I think this time both offenses will get enough runs to push the total to go over.  

PICK: Over 8 (-110)
