UNDER the Play for Giants-Dodgers on Wednesday Night

Will Smith and the Los Angeles Dodgers are strong moneyline favorites in MLB betting odds against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will try for a second straight win against their division-leading rivals from San Francisco on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Game 2 of this important four-game series ended in dramatic fashion last night as Will Smith hit a walk-off three-run home run, giving the Dodgers an 8-6 victory. The Dodgers now trail the Giants by just a single game in the National League West.

Opening Odds Analysis

The Dodgers opened as heavy -180 favorites for this contest, but even after the dramatic walk-off win last night, the early money has been on the Giants, pushing the line down to -160. The O/U has remained steady at 8.5 (-110). The first two games of the series both went OVER 8.5 total runs.

Starting Pitchers Analysis

Logan Webb has appeared in 12 games for the Giants, starting 11, and is 4-3 with a 3.54 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and 60 strikeouts in 56 innings. He faced the Dodgers on May 29, giving up two runs (one earned) in five innings, while striking out seven and picking up the victory. He missed all of June with a right shoulder strain and has pitched a total of seven innings in two starts since returning.

Julio Urias is 12-3 for the Dodgers with a 3.78 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 19 starts. Urias faced the Giants in back-to-back starts on May 23 and 29, winning the first and losing the second. In the first, he went six strong innings, giving up two earned runs and striking out 10. In the second, the Giants touched him up for 11 hits and six earned runs in only five innings. 

San Francisco News & Notes

The Giants are now 6-4 in their last 10 games and 29-22 on the road this year. On Tuesday, Giants reliever Tyler Rogers walked the first two batters he faced in the ninth inning before giving up the game-ending home run to Will Smith. Rogers has converted only 10 of 15 save opportunities this year.

In the five games since the all-star break, Giants slugger Mike Yastrzemski has three homers, six RBIs and a stolen base.

Los Angeles News & Notes

Top pitching prospect Josiah Gray made his major league debut last night, going four innings and striking out seven. Gray allowed only four hits in his first appearance, but three of them were home runs.

Mookie Betts did not start for the third consecutive game last night. By the time Will Smith hit the dramatic walk-off home run, the Dodgers were without Justin Turner and Max Muncy as well. Both were taken out of the game after being plunked by Alex Wood pitches.

Betting Pick: UNDER 8.5

There have been lots of fireworks during the first two games of this series. The Giants went off for seven runs in a 7-2 win on Monday and last night the teams combined for 14 total runs. Tonight will belong to the pitchers. Look for a low-scoring pitching duel and take UNDER 8.5 runs.
