BETTING TRENDS

LA Dodgers are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

LA Dodgers are 16-4 SU in their last 20 games against an opponent in the National League.

San Francisco are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against an opponent in the National League.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of San Francisco's last 19 games played on a Tuesday.

Prediction

The Dodgers continue to stay hot offensively as they scored an average of 7 runs per game in their last 5 games. They have also won the last 5 games vs the Giants. Julio Urias will get the ball for the Dodgers who has been insane lately and has allowed 3 runs in his last 20 innings pitched. The Giants will send Alex Cobb to the mound who has been decent but has lost twice vs Dodgers this season. The Dodgers are simply on another level and the Giants are no rivals for them. Take the Dodgers.

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-105)
