LA Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

The LA Dodgers are going to be obvious favorites, and it doesn't hurt to have Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who hasn't allowed a run on the road through 17 innings. However, the San Francisco Giants are coming off a successful weekend, and we know they get up for the Dodgers, which makes them live dogs in these matchups. Also, Jordan Hicks has enjoyed pitching at Oracle this season, where he has a 1.50 ERA in 24 innings. Hicks has been solid this season overall and gives plus money odds some bite. I'll take a stab with the Giants at home and the more favorable price.
