Game 3 of the NLDS sees the San Francisco Giants visit the Los Angeles Dodgers after dropping Game 2 to allow the Dodgers to tie the series at 1-1. Opening pitch is set for 9:37 p.m. ET and will air on TBS from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California.

San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Game 3 Predictions

The Los Angeles Dodgers have home field advantage over the best team in baseball after winning Game 2 on Saturday night. The Dodgers hammered the San Francisco Giants 9-2, breaking the game open in the sixth inning. Everyone but Justin Turner got in on the action, while five of the Giants six hits came from two players.

Max Scherzer has not lost a start since July 8 when he was still with the Washington Nationals. The Dodgers have won all 12 games Scherzer has started since acquiring him at the trade deadline, leading to this team being a sizable favorite in Game 3 on Monday night. That gives underdog bettors extra value with the Giants.

The Giants have only lost back-to-back games once in the last six weeks. San Francisco was the best team in the regular season for most of the year, so it will take a lot to beat them again in Game 3.
