The Dodgers need to start playing better against the Giants if they wish to gain ground on them. So far that has not been the case and I look for the Giants to win on Thursday.
At this moment in time, the Giants are the better team and they are playing better together.
I look for Cueto to toss a solid game and for his team to hit around Price enough to get a win.
I like the Giants as +110 home dogs.
