The Giants are 6-2 in their last 8 Monday games and 19-9 in their last 28 road games. The Dodgers are 55-21 in their last 76 home games and 40-18 in their last 58 overall. The under is 5-2 in Giants last 7 overall. The under is 9-2-2 in Dodgers last 13 home games. The Giants are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings.
Kevin Gausman has quietly been one of the better pitchers in baseball and that includes allowing seven hits and three runs in his last 13 innings. Tony Gonsolin has been great in his own right, but he’s still working his way into the season and has just 25.1 innings under his belt. The Giants are a team that doesn’t get the respect they deserve from oddsmakers. Give me the Giants, assuming we can get plus money out of this line eventually.
