The San Francisco Giants
and Los Angeles Dodgers
wrap up their three game set tonight with a 10:10pm ET clash at Dodger Stadium. The latest MLB Free Picks
and Odds at 5Dimes have the hosting Dodgers listed as a -177 moneyline favorite ($177 wins $100) and the game total set at 6.5 runs (Under favored at -120 odds). The Giants are drawing a +167 moneyline to avoid being swept.
The Dodgers currently occupy the cellar in the NL West; however, they are trending in a positive direction right now, having won four straight games.
Los Angeles, following 6-1 and 3-1 wins in San Diego, notched 3-1 and 6-5 wins to open their home set with San Francisco.
The Dodgers will look to make it five in a row this evening with staff ace Clayton Kershaw
toeing the rubber. The 2011 Cy Young winner is coming off an unimpressive outing against the Padres as he allowed seven hits and four earned runs over six innings in a 2-5 loss at Petco Park last Friday.
Kershaw’s season numbers are outstanding, though, as he brings a 2.06 ERA and 0.99 WHIP to the hill tonight. Kershaw also sports a 1.52 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in nine starts at Dodger Stadium this season.
The Giants, who have dropped three straight to fall to 38-39 overall, will counter Kershaw with two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum.
Lincecum, while a shell of his former self, has pitched reasonably well of late, allowing 10 hits and five earned runs in his last two starts (13 innings) for a 3.46 ERA. For the season Lincecum is 4-7 with a 4.52 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 15 starts.
San Francisco Giants +1.5 (-145), Over 6.5 (-120), +167 (Moneyline)
Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (+125), Under 6.5 (+100), -177 (Moneyline)
