Lopsided Pitching Matchup Makes Giants a Nice Value Bet

Past the 20-game marks of their seasons, the Dodgers and Giants find themselves in unfamiliar territory in the NL West as both clubs are below .500 and looking up to find the Rockies and Diamondbacks ahead of them in the standings. While the Dodgers will be right back in the mix if they can put together a mini-win streak, the Giants are the NL’s most disappointing team as we approach the end of April and will be looking to turn the tide on some ugly offensive numbers at home.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants have covered the runline in five straight vs LA.
  • Corey Seager has a .353 AVG in 17 ABs vs Johnny Cueto.
  • 15 of the last 21 games between these teams at AT&T Park have gone UNDER.

Averaging just 3.11 runs at home — second-worst in the NL — to go along with a losing record at AT&T Park, the Giants should have an excellent opportunity to boost their stats with Alex Wood on the mound for Los Angeles. It’s a small sample size, but Wood has struggled in recent appearances vs San Fran, recording a 6.14 ERA in 14.2 innings pitched. In his two road starts this season he’s allowed six runs in 8.1 innings of work.

The Giants will counter with Johnny Cueto, who hasn’t been on point this season, but his team is 3-1 in the four games he’s started. Going back to last season, Cueto was strong vs the Dodgers, going 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in five starts.

Considering the pitching matchup and home-field advantage, the Giants offer nice value in this game as they opened the day as an underdog in the EVEN money range. The game also features a low total of seven runs. Both teams are trending heavily in the UNDER direction with San Fran going UNDER in 11 of their last 14, and LA going UNDER in seven of their last nine.
