The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants begin a three-game series Friday night.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense continues to produce, and they’ve won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 66 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 28 RBI and Yasiel Puig has five home runs. Clayton Kershaw gets the nod, and he’s 8-1 with a 1.46 ERA and 109 strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 17-7 with a 1.60 ERA and 254 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants also look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Giants have allowed 12 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have an ERA of 3.55 and have lost five straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Denard Span leads San Francisco with 60 hits, Hunter Pence has 36 RBI and Brandon Belt has seven home runs. Johnny Cueto takes the hill, and he’s 9-1 with a 2.16 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 4-5 with a 3.16 ERA and 51 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 1-4 in their last 5 games following an off day and 52-18 in Kershaws last 70 starts. The Giants are 6-1 in their last 7 home games and 11-1 in Cuetos last 12 starts. The Dodgers are 3-11 in the last 14 meetings in San Francisco.
Usually I never pick against Kershaw, but we're getting another ace and the home team for 1.5 times our money. That's pretty good value if you ask me. While Cueto isn't Kershaw, he's still 9-1 with an ERA just over two. I'll take a shot with the Giants given this sweet price.
