LA Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. I know Logan Webb is supposed to be the Giants’ staff ace and he’s pitched better at home over the course of his career, but the Giants are so inconsistent offensively that it makes them hard to back even at the best of times. The Dodgers are flat out rolling right now and regardless of who they send to the mound here, it’s really hard to not like what Los Angeles is doing at the plate right now. I think the Dodgers complete the sweep of their division rival in convincing fashion, so give me the Dodgers in this one.
