He struck out four batters bu he didn't factor in the decision. He has a record of 1-2 with an ERA of 7.02 and 23 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Giants in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

LA Dodgers are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against San Francisco.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Dodgers' last 7 games against an opponent in the National League.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Francisco's last 6 games against LA Dodgers.

San Francisco Giants are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers continue to stay hot offensively as they scored an average of 7 runs per game in their last series vs Rockies. They also swept the Giants the last time they met in LA but Andrew Heaney who was great in his return and will start this game has struggled against them in his career. The Giants finally ended their losing streak and beat the Cubs in the weekend series. For this game Logan Webb will get the ball who has dominated the Dodgers this season. This should be a great pitching matchup so expect a low scoring game. Take the under.

PICK: Under 8 (-110)
