Los Angeles Dodgers Recap

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this one looking to win the series after evening the set up at one win apiece thanks to a 14-7 extra innings win on Saturday. The win gave the Dodgers a chance to keep their series unbeaten streak alive after wins over the White Sox and Rockies with a split with the Angels sandwiched in the middle over the last two weeks.

Dodgers Looking To Keep Momentum Going

Entering Saturday’s matchup, Shohei Ohtani has 101 hits including a team-high 25 home runs, 21 doubles and 61 RBIs with a .322 batting average while Mookie Betts has 86 hits with 16 doubles, 3 triples, 10 homers and 40 RBIs of his own, but will miss the next few weeks because of an injury. Teoscar Hernandez also has 18 home runs with 55 RBIs and a team-high 98 strikeouts. Betts also has 9 stolen bases while Ohtani has a team-high 16 stolen bases. Freddie Freeman also has 50 RBIs with 22 doubles and Will Smith has added 16 doubles, 11 home runs and 47 RBIs.

Why the Los Angeles Dodgers will win

  • The Dodgers have won each of their last nine games after going to extra innings.
  • The Giants have lost 11 of their last 12 day games against National League opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Dodgers have covered the run line in each of their last eight games after going to extra innings.
  • The Giants have failed to cover the run line each of their last four day games against teams that held a winning record.

San Francisco Giants Recap

The San Francisco Giants will look to bounce back after their loss to the Dodgers on Saturday, putting their chance to build on their sweep of the Cubs to start the week at risk after allowing 7 runs in extra innings in the defeat.

Giants Trying To Climb Back To .500

Going into Saturday, Thairo Estrada has 68 hits along with a team-high 9 home runs and 39 RBIs while also chipping in 14 doubles. Michael Conforto has 49 hits with 9 home runs, 9 doubles and 29 RBIs while Matt Chapman has 72 hits of his own alongside 20 doubles with 10 homers, 35 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Chapman also has the dubious distinction of leading the Giants with 83 strikeouts this season.

LA Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. James Paxton is one of my least favorite options in that rotation, but the thing is the Dodgers keep winning with him on the mound, as they’re 11-3 in his starts this season. The Giants are a solid team, but they’re not hitting lefties as well as of late, and I think getting the Dodgers at this price is worth the play. Give me the Dodgers.
