Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This is a series between 2 heavyweights in the National League that happen to be in the same division. It definitely should be a very entertaining series.
These teams are very evenly matched which would explain why their records are so similar. I give the edge to the Dodgers in this one.
I think Buehler is the better pitcher and he should be able to neutralize this powerful lineup. The last time he went against these guys, he was very good.
I will lay the 116 with the Dodgers here.
