The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants meet Sunday in MLB action at Oracle Park.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 20 of their last 21 games when scoring at least three runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 81 hits and 54 RBI while Justin Turner and Corey Seager have combined for 124 hits and 65 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 6-1 with a 3.69 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 2-0 with a 4.38 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 53 hits and 26 RBI while Joe Panik and Kevin Pillar have combined for 98 hits and 46 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 4.05 ERA and 79 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 15-12 with a 2.56 ERA and 210 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are 40-18 in their last 58 Sunday games, 41-15 in their last 56 during game 3 of a series and 10-4 in Buehler's last 14 starts. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games, 2-6 in Bumgarner's last 8 Sunday starts and 5-2 in Bumgarner's last 7 starts. The Giants are 4-10 in Bumgarner's last 14 starts vs. Dodgers. The over is 4-1-1 in Bumgarner's last 6 home starts. The under is 7-2-1 in Buehlers last 10 starts vs. National League West.

Buehler has allowed one or less earned runs in four of his last five starts and has been at his best on the road where he has an ERA of 3.38 and a .218 allowed batting average. Bumgarner has yet to put together a gem this season, but he's becoming more consistent in terms of quality starts and the Giants have won five of his last seven starts. I don't enjoy backing the Giants due to the lack of offense, but Bumgarner and the plus money at home here feels like a decent shot to take a stab for the plus money.

Pick:
San Francisco Giants +141
