Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have been rolling lately, as first baseman/outfield call-up Cody Bellinger has provided some much needed pop to the lineup in supplement to Corey Seager.
Bellinger is now hitting in the cleanup spot and owns a .301 average with 7 HR and 19 RBI in just 73 at-bats thus far. Corey Seager looks poised to repeat his excellent season from a season ago, owning a .282 average and 6 HR.
Clayton Kershaw is widely considered the best pitcher in baseball and is a sure fire Hall of Famer at this point. He may be in the conversation for the best pitcher ever depending how the back-9 of his career goes.
Kershaw leads the league with 6 wins and owns a 2.43 ERA and 57 Ks thus far.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants haven’t been quite up to par for a perennial contender, currently sitting 8 games below .500 at 16-24. San Fran’s offense is once again led by incumbent catcher, Buster Posey, who has 7 HR and a .375 BA thus far.
He’s going to need some help though, as the team doesn’t have hitter with 20+ RBI; Brandon Belt leads the way in the category with 17.
Johnny Cueto is now the ace of the staff with Madison Bumgarner out through June, but he certainly isn’t pitching like one as he did a year ago.
Cueto will take the mound versus Kershaw and the Dodgers here, entering the game with a 4.15 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.
- Los Angeles is 12-5 in their last 17 games as a favorite.
- Los Angeles are 12-5 in their last 17 games on grass.
- The Dodgers are 9-11 on the road this year.
- Under is 14-5 in San Francisco’s last 19 home games.
- Under is 9-4 in San Francisco’s last 13 Wednesday games.
- Under is 22-5-2 in Kershaw’s last 29 starts vs the Giants.
Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
Although Cueto hasn’t had the strong numbers like the posted last season through his first 8 starts, the numbers are slightly inflation from one start at Colorado in the thin air, where he allowed 6 runs.
Aside from that start, Cueto has allowed fewer than 4 earned runs in 6 of his other 7 starts.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 7.0
The Giants aren’t scoring many runs, and with Kershaw on the hill, I wouldn’t expect this game to buck that trend. I’ll take the under on a tease at 7 runs for a little more insurance.
Cueto will have the luxury of pitching at AT&T park, which is a tough one on lefties and happens to be the hand that both Bellinger and Seager hit.
