San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction
The Giants send LHP Carlos Rodon to the hill against L. A.’s second-ranked scoring offense (5.40 RSPG), who’s having an excellent first season in San Francisco sitting 8-5 with a 2.66 ERA across 18 starts (1.11 WHIP), which is a huge step up from his career 3.64 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
On the flip side, the Dodgers send RHP Mitch White to the mound against San Francisco’s third-ranked scoring offense (4.80 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down throughout the year sitting 0-2 with a 4.04 ERA across eight starts (1.32 WHIP); and 1-0 with a 4.82 ERA across five bullpen appearances (1.18 WHIP).
I’ll back the Giants here, as Rodon has tossed five innings or more and allowed one run or less in six of his last nine starts for San Francisco (1.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP); likely presenting an uphill battle for White, who’s 0-2 with a 3.99 ERA across his last six outings for the Dodgers (1.33 WHIP).
Score Prediction: Giants 5, Dodgers 3
Best Bet: Giants ML (+120)
