The Giants are 21-5 in their last 26 games following an off day and 5-1 in their last 6 Monday games. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 Monday games and 39-12 in their last 51 home games. The over is 6-2 in Giants last 8 games as an underdog. The over is 5-1 in Dodgers last 6 home games. The Giants are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

Wood had a shaky at best month of August, but he was much better in September, allowing nine hits and two runs through 13 innings with 17 strikeouts and zero walks. Scherzer has been money in his postseason career, and his last few starts have been no different. Scherzer also has a .134 allowed batting average in 104 at bats against current Giants hitters. There's no reason to bet against the Dodgers here. With that said, the Giants at plus money has valeu, and this is a team that's found a way time and time again this season. I'll back the Giants.
