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

The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Giants have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 11 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less 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. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.97 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost six of their last eight 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. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball, and he is 6-1 with a 3.13 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 22-11 with a 1.72 ERA and 337 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games, 4-1 in their last 5 overall and 15-40 in their last 55 vs. a team with a winning record. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 41-10 in Kershaw's last 51 home starts and 83-26 in Kershaw's last 109 starts. The Giants are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings and the Dodgers are 12-5 in Kershaw's last 17 starts vs. Giants. The over is 5-2 in Kershaw's last 7 starts overall. The over is 12-1 in Giants last 13 Tuesday games.

Anderson has been respectable to start his MLB career, as he's allowed three or less runs through six starts and has gone at least five innings in every game. Kershaw has given up five earned runs in his last 20 innings and the Dodgers have lost just one regular season game with him on the mound since August 19. The Dodgers have won seven straight home games when Kershaw is favored and 15 of their last 17 home games when he's favored. Kershaw has also been ridiculous against the Giants throughout his career, which includes a 1.72 ERA all-time and a .203 batting average in 365 at bats against current hitters. Give me the Dodgers and the RL.

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5
