MLB Baseball Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers enter tonight’s action sporting a 19-11 record that ranks them No. 1 overall in the NL West. At the present time the Dodgers own a 2 game lead over the 2nd seeded San Diego Padres and a 2 ½ game lead over the 3rd seeded Arizona Diamondbacks. With this in mind, it’s clear that the Dodgers need to keep on winning if they’re to maintain their hold on the division. However, we’ve seen Los Angeles drop 6-game losing streak already this season, so we know they can hit a rut at any time.
Fortunately for the franchise it appears that they’re rolling on all cylinders since they’ve picked up the last four consecutively. And to ensure they extend that win streak. Los Angeles will be sticking with Kenta Maeda tonight. So far this season, Maeda is 3-2 and wields a whopping 5.20 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
Players to Watch: AJ Pollock (2 HR, 14 RBI, .223 BA), Cody Bellinger (14 HR, 36 RBI, .427 BA), and Corey Seager (2 HR, 9 RBI, .255 BA).
San Francisco Giants
The Giants tumble into tonight’s action flashing an 11-17 losing record on the year. Unsurprisingly, that lackluster record pegs San Fran as the worst team in the NL West. And with a 3 game losing streak looming over the Giants, it’s safe to say that they don’t bring any momentum into this contest. Fortunately they’ll have the better pitcher on the mound this evening, since the Giants are sticking with Maeda. Jeff Samardzija is the man tasked with making the home stand this Monday evening. At the present time Samardzija has a 2-1 record to his name as well as a 3.00 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Steven Duggar (3 HR, 11 RBI, .223 BA), Evan Longoria (3 HR, 8 RBI, .204 BA), and Brandon Crawford (0 HR, 2 RBI, .200 BA).
