MLB Baseball Betting Odds:
San Francisco Giants
The Giants tumble into this Monday night matchup sporting a 59-60 record that ranks them 4th in the NL West. Although they rank penultimate in the division, since San Fran is but 6-games behind the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks, it’s safe to say that they’re still very much in the mix of things. Nevertheless, the season is getting shorter every day and the Giants need to mount a strong winning streak if they are to make the postseason. But since they’re 2-4 in their last 6 matchups, the Giants will also need a rebound in the coming days. Madison Bumgarner is the man tasked with igniting that rebound this evening. Bumgarner is 4-4 on the season and brings a 2.69 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP to the table this evening.
Players to Watch: Brandon Belt (14 HR, 43 RBI, .278 BA), Brandon Crawford (11 HR, 45 RBI, .276 BA), and Andrew McCutchen (13 HR, 48 RBI, .255 BA).
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers leap into this Monday night pairing flashing a 64-55 record that ranks them as the second best team in the NL West. Los Angeles had a rough start to the season but they’ve managed to bounce back. However, the Dodgers enter this matchup riding a 3-game losing streak. If LA isn’t able to bounce back this evening at home, they might end up falling down the NL West ladder. To make sure they get the home win this evening, Los Angeles will be sending Clayton Kershaw to the mound this evening. Kershaw is 5-5 on the season and will be looking to improve on his 2.58 ERA and his 1.07 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Matt Kemp (17 HR, 66 RBI, .283 BA), Max Muncy (26 HR, 52 RBI, .256 BA), and Cody Bellinger (19 HR, 54 RBI, .254 BA).
