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

The San Francisco Giants could use a win after losing three of their last four games. The Giants have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 13 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost seven of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 59 hits and 32 RBI while Steven Duggar and Joe Panik have combined for 113 hits and 48 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 3.87 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 15-13 with a 2.52 ERA and 215 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Dodgers have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 25 of their last 28 games when scoring three or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 93 hits and 60 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 141 hits and 74 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.05 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. Urias is 0-2 with a 1.63 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games, 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series and 8-19 in Bumgarner's last 27 road starts. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series, 4-1 in their last 5 Thursday games and 1-6 in Urias' last 7 home starts. The Giants are 4-11 in Bumgarner's last 15 starts vs. Dodgers and 2-7 in Bumgarner's last 9 road starts vs. Dodgers. The under is 13-4-1 in Dodgers last 18 overall. The over is 6-2 in Bumgarner's last 8 starts overall.

Bumgarner has been respectable all season long, but he doesn't get much run support and has been on the losing side of even his best games. The Dodgers are also used to Bumgarner, and current hitters are batting .276 against him with 16 homers in 315 at bats. Urias has allowed zero earned runs in his last eight innings and is allowing a .195 batting average in 41.1 innings this season. The difference in this game is what it usually comes down to for the Giants, and it's the fact San Francisco can't put together offense. The Dodgers beat their division rival once again. 

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -200
