A critical NL West matchup awaits this Thursday, as the surging San Francisco Giants will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in LA.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants are now 2 games ahead of the Dodgers in the division and that is a position that almost nobody would have seen coming this past offseason, as it looked like the Dodgers were primed to defend their crown.
The Giants have really put together an excellent roster with solid pitching and batting and it is so hard to find holes in this roster and it is also tough to not see them making the playoffs from the position they currently find themselves in. San Francisco also managed to win the first game of this series by a score of 7-2 with star catcher Buster Posey playing hero with a 2 run home run which was critical in the eventual win.
Logan Webb heads to the hill for the Giants this Thursday and that should instill some confidence, as he has a mid 3’s ERA and a 4-3 record and has even held a powerful Dodgers lineup to a .234 average over his career.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers, although it has not always been pretty, do look like the favorites to win the World Series, as they have a stack batting lineup and one of the better starting rotations in all of baseball.
They have had their issues though with their starting pitching with Kershaw not always looking like himself, and Trevor Bauer possibly being out for the foreseeable future due to an off the field issue.
Julio Urias is the starting pitcher on Thursday and although he has a 12-3 record this year, he has not always been convincing and the individual matchup does not look amazing, as he has allowed a .300 batting average against the Giants over his career.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Giants are 60-35 overall

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Walker Buehler is 6-0 with a 2.17 ERA in 8 career starts and a couple of relief appearances against the Giants, and I’m expecting him to put on another strong performance Thursday at Dodger Stadium.
The current Giants are batting just 14-for-79 against Buehler while posting a poor .377 OPS. On the other side, the current Dodgers are slashing .430/.489/.718 against Anthony DeSclafani.
Take the Dodgers in the series finale.
