The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants face off on Friday in Game 1 of their NLDS series at Oracle Park. These two teams faced off 19 times this season, and the Giants won 10 of them. These are the two best teams in the National League, so it’s a bit disappointing that this series isn’t happening in the NLCS. 

The Giants had a historical regular season finishing with a 107-55 record. The Giants are averaging 4.96 runs per game and at home the number is even a little lower averaging 4,70 runs per game. Shortstop Brandon Crawford has been the star of the offense hitting 24 home runs and driving in 90 RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Dodgers who finished with a 106-56 record. The Dodgers faced a tough St. Louis Cardinals team in the Wild Card game, and it took a walkoff home run by Chris Taylor in the 9th inning to advance to this series. The Dodgers are averaging 5.11 runs per game and on the road that number is actually higher at 5.17. Max Muncy is the best player for the Dodgers hitting 36 home runs and driving in 94 RBI’s.

On the mound for the Dodgers is Walker Buehler who sits with a 16-4 record and an ERA of 2.47. He also has a WHIP of 0.97. Over his last two starts he has gone 12 total innings giving up six hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Giants is Logan Webb who sits with an 11-3 record and an ERA of 3.03. Webb’s last start came against the San Diego Padres and he gave up four runs in seven innings. 

The Dodgers are 8-2 in their last ten playoff games. The Giants are 5-1 in their last six games as an underdog. The Dodgers are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games against the Giants. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings. 

When these two teams face off the under has been a strong play, and points are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Look for Buehler and Webb to lock down and this game is going to stay under the total. Look for a 3-1 or 3-2 type of game.
