San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Analysis

The Giants visit the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Thursday, July 21, 2022 for the third of a four-game series.

San Francisco remains 14.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and is in third place in the National League West with a 48-45 record, despite going 22-23 away from Oracle Park. The Dodgers rank first in the National League West standings with a record of 62-30, which includes an impressive 32-13 mark at home.

San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction

The Dodgers send LHP Julio Urias to the hill against San Francisco’s third-ranked scoring offense on Saturday night (4.82 RSPG), who’s having another excellent campaign sitting 8-6 with a 2.89 ERA across 18 starts (1.02 WHIP), which already includes a pair of solid performances against the Giants (12 IP, 2 ER).

On the other hand, the Giants send LHP Alex Wood to the mound against L. A.’s second-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.18 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down for San Francisco all season sitting 6-7 with a 4.20 ERA across 18 starts (1.24 WHIP), which already includes a lackluster outing against the Dodgers (5.1 IP, 3 ER).

I’ll back L. A. here, as Wood has tossed six innings or less and surrendered three runs or more in eight of his last 15 appearances for the Giants (4-7, 4.52 ERA); setting the stage for an unfavorable matchup against the Dodgers and Urias, who’s posted a sturdy 2.45 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 16 career starts against San Francisco (88 IP, 24 ER).

Score Prediction: Dodgers 6, Giants 3
Best Bet: Dodgers -1.5 (+115)

San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – Pitching Matchup

San Francisco: Alex Wood (6-7, 4.20 ERA)

Alex Wood will take the mound for the Giants. So far, he's tallied a 1.24 WHIP and a 4.20 ERA, good for the third-worst marks of his career. However, Wood entered the All-Star Break on a downhill slide, considering he's 4-7 with a 4.52 ERA across his last 15 outings.

Los Angeles: Julio Urias (8-6, 2.89 ERA)

Julio Urias will take the hill for the Dodgers, who's 8-6 with a 2.89 ERA on the season (18 G, 1.02 WHIP). However, he's posted even better numbers against San Francisco, considering he's allowed just two runs across 12 innings against the Giants this season (1.50 ERA, 0.58 WHIP); which pads his career 2.45 ERA and 1.17 WHIP against them (16 GS).
