San Francisco Giants vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. I said going into Monday’s game that I wasn’t necessarily sold on Gavin Stone, but sold or not, there’s no denying that he’s the better option here as the Giants have had issues with consistency and Winn has been getting consistently shelled against the Dodgers in his brief history against them. The Dodgers are the better team playing better baseball right now, and I’ll side with them on the road here as a result.
