The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants meet Thursday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 34 hits and 24 RBI while Justin Turner and Corey Seager have combined for 62 hits and 40 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 4.32 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 4-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look to build on their seven-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight straight games. The Giants have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Donovan Solano leads the Giants with 34 hits and 18 RBI while Mike Yastrzemski and Wilmer Flores have combined for 64 hits and 42 RBI. Logan Webb gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.29 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Webb is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA and seven strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 21-6 in their last 27 road games, 38-14 in their last 52 games as a favorite and 36-15 in their last 51 overall. The Giants are 6-0 in their last 6 home games, 6-0 in their last 6 games as an underdog and 7-0 in their last 7 overall. The over is 6-1 in Dodgers last 7 road games. The over is 10-3-1 in Giants last 14 home games. The Dodgers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
Walker Buehler has allowed 10 earned runs and 14 hits in his last 21.1 innings while Logan Webb has allowed eight earned runs and 16 hits in his last 19.2 innings. It's another game where the Dodgers have the clear edge on the mound and everything is pointing toward them winning, but we're getting an outrageous price with the Giants at home, a team that's won seven straight. The San Francisco Giants have found ways to win games and continue to cash in these underdog spots. Not saying it happens here, but the value is there.
