The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants meet Thursday in Game 5 of the NLDS in MLB action at Oracle Park. The Dodgers look to make their fifth NLCS in the last six years. The Giants look to make their first NLCS since the 2014 season. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in three of their last five games. The Dodgers have lost five of their last nine games when scoring three or fewer runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with seven hits and four RBI while Will Smith and Trea Turner have combined for 11 hits and four RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he was 20-3 with a 2.96 ERA and 195 strikeouts this season. Urias is 7-2 with a 2.68 ERA and 44 strikeouts in his postseason career.

The San Francisco Giants have scored five runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in five of their last seven games. The Giants have split their last eight games when scoring three or fewer runs. Kris Bryant leads the Giants with six hits and two RBI while Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford have combined for nine hits and four RBI. Logan Webb gets the ball, and he was 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA and 158 strikeouts this season. Webb is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his postseason career.

The Dodgers are 5-2 in their last 7 playoff road games and 40-16 in their last 56 Thursday games. The Giants are 22-5 in their last 27 games following an off day and 37-18 in their last 55 playoff games. The over is 7-3 in Dodgers last 10 overall. The over is 5-2 in Giants last 7 games following a loss. The Dodgers are 13-6 in the last 19 meetings in San Francisco and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings.

Urias has been great all season long, which includes allowing nine runs in his last 40 innings, and he's actually been better on the road this season than at home. The Dodgers offense is also showing more recent signs of life than the Giants. With that said, Webb has been out of this world at home this season, where he has a 1.96 ERA and .213 allowed batting average. Webb held the Dodgers scoreless in game 1 through 7.2 innings, and the Giants have yet to lose a home game he's pitched this season. You have to go back to September 2020 the last time the Giants have lost a home game with Webb pitching. This is the exact reason why the Giants fought so hard to hold off the Dodgers in the NL West, to get these sorts of games at Oracle Park. I like the Giants.
