Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will meet again to play a 3-game of the series at the Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers won their last series against the Padres and the Giants swept the Phillies but are 3-10 vs Dodgers this season and haven't beat them in L.A.

 

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 92-41 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.36 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, 716 runs scored in 1084 hits and 176 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 33 home runs. Trea Turner has 90 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 3.17 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.10 ERA, 116 strikeouts and 16 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Andrew Heaney (2-1, 2.12 ERA)

Heaney will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Dodgers. Heaney doesn't have the best health track record, so when it was announced that he was no longer the scheduled starter Sunday against the Padres, it looked potentially concerning. As it turns out, the Dodgers simply wanted to give their rotation some extra rest. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 6.10 and 30 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Giants in his career.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 64-68 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.47 runs per game and they're batting for .233 AVG, 591 runs scored in 1028 hits and 146 home runs, ranking #12 in offense in the league behind the Houston Astros. Joc Pederson leads the team with 21 home runs and 61 RBI. Thairo Estrada is batting for an average of .263.

Defensively they are allowing 4.41 runs per game and rank #18 in the league. Carlos Rodon leads the pitching staff with a 2.89 ERA, 201 strikeouts and 12 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Logan Webb (11-8, 2.89 ERA)

Webb will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Giants. Webb took the loss Tuesday versus the Padres, allowing just one unearned run on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 5.2 innings. He  has a 1-3 record with an ERA of 4.20 and 32 strikeouts in 8 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.

 

BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games against LA Dodgers.

San Francisco are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road.

San Francisco are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 11-5 SU in their last 16 games.

LA Dodgers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Dodgers continue to stay hot scoring 21 runs in the last 2 games and have dominated the Giants at home this season. For this game Andrew Heaney will take the mound who has been solid this season and the Dodgers have won in 8 of his 10 starts this season including the 8-2 victory vs Giants. Logan Webb will start for the Giants who was solid in his last start but has had his up and downs this season. Webb was pounded by the Dodgers the last time but he dominated them before that so expect him to be better this time. Take the under.

PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
