Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants Betting Prediction
The Dodgers send LHP Julio Urias to the hill against San Francisco’s ninth-ranked scoring offense on Wednesday night (4.60 RSPG), who’s having a magnificent campaign for Los Angeles sitting 10-6 with a 2.71 ERA across 20 starts this season (0.98 WHIP), which already includes a trio of excellent outings against the Giants (18 IP, 1.00 ERA).
On the other hand, the Giants send RHP Alex Cobb to the mound against L. A.’s second-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.27 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down for San Francisco all season, considering he’s 3-5 with a 4.06 ERA across 16 starts this season (1.28 WHIP), which already includes a lackluster performance against the Dodgers (5.2 IP, 4 ER).
I’ll back L. A. to cover here, as Cobb has been incredibly inconsistent for San Francisco as of late, considering he’s surrendered three runs or more in five of his last 11 appearances for the Giants (1-4, 4.09 ERA); setting the stage for an unfavorable matchup against the Dodgers and Urias, who’s posted a solid 2.30 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 16 careers starts against San Francisco (94 IP).
Score Prediction: Dodgers 6, Giants 3
Best Bet: Dodgers -1.5 (+105)
