The Line: San Francisco Giants +205 / Los Angeles Dodgers -250 -- Over/Under: 8.5

TV: SNLA, NSBA, ESPN

The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Monday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 58 hits and 28 RBI while Kevin Pillar and Joe Panik have combined for 111 hits and 52 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 8.06 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 88 hits and 58 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 135 hits and 72 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-3 with a 3.89 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 4-3 with a 4.04 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series, 6-2 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter and 15-39 in their last 54 vs. a team with a winning record. The Dodgers are 45-15 in their last 60 home games, 36-15 in their last 51 vs. National League West and 5-0 in Maeda's last 5 home starts. The Giants are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The Dodgers are 1-4 in Maeda's last 5 starts vs. Giants and 4-0 in Maeda's last 4 home starts vs. Giants. The under is 4-1-1 in Maeda's last 6 starts overall. The under is 11-3-2 in Giants last 16 Monday games.

Beede seems to be getting shakier every time he takes the mound, and he's allowed 29 hits and 20 earned runs through 22.1 innings this season. It feels like this is a good matchup for the Dodgers to break out of their offensive funk. Maeda has been hittable here and there, but at home he has a 1.69 ERA and a .145 allowed batting average. The Dodgers are also 4-0 at home this season with Maeda on the hill and they actually haven't lost a regular season home game with him since September 3. I'll back the Dodgers here and lay the price due to being burned a few times by laying the RL.
