Monday will be the first of a three game series between these long time rivals and could be one of the best pitching battles of the year. The Giants will have their Ace Madison Bumgarner on the hill to face Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers.
San Francisco has gotten the best of the Dodgers up to this point in the season, leading the series 7 games to 6.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Clayton Kershaw will be looking to improve his record to 12-3 as he makes his 19th start of the season. In his last outing, Kershaw was able to hold the New York Yankees to one run in his five innings on the mound.
Despite missing some time do to a back injury, Kershaw has dominated opposing batters in 2016 with a 1.81 ERA and 0.73 WHIP over 129 innings.
His last start against the Giants was in June and he was able to hold San Francisco to just 2 runs over 8 innings.
Throughout his career, Kershaw has a 1.62 ERA against the Dodgers that has led to a 18-7 record.
The Dodgers have only been scoring 4.43 runs per game and it probably will not get any better Monday against the Giants.
The pitching of Los Angeles will need to continue to be strong Monday and display their 4th best team ERA in the Majors of 3.96.
San Francisco Giants
Bumgarner will take the mound Monday looking for his 15th win in his 31st start this season. He deliveded a quality start in his last trip to the mound only allowing the Padres three runs in six innings in a losing effort.
The Giants Ace was been more than solid this year with a 2.66 ERA in 206.1 innings.
The Giants are ranked 17th in the Majors as a team, averaging 4.43 and are hitting .258.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
I don’t think this will be a high scoring game, but the low total still makes taking the under a little scary.
Both pitchers have been looking good as of late, but if they are forced to come out of the game early, either bullpen could easily give up an extra run or two.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles ML and game total under 6
Kershaw has a 1.62 career ERA against the Giants and Bumgarner has been almost as impressive with an ERA of 2.78 in his career against the Dodgers. This will be an epic pitching duel and I don’t see either team being able to get the bats swinging.
I think the Dodgers will do just enough to come out on top and take the first of the three game series.
