The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will meet again from San Fran on Sunday. All up to date odds for this game can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Giants are still in first place in the AL West and are actually in danger of getting swept in the series against the Dodgers which would lead to a tie for the division. Starter Barry Zito was roughed up yesterday in five innings of work to take the loss. This afternoon the Giants will turn to Ryan Vogelsong who has let up just 97 hits in 123 innings of work this season which is good enough for 2.26 ERA.
The Dodgers look to be playing their best baseball of the year right now at the most opportune time. Matt Kemp had four hits including a homerun to leave the offense and Chad Billingsley was solid on the mound yesterday. This afternoon they will turn to Clayton Kershaw for the sweep. Kershaw has allowed just 114 hits in 140 innings of work this season.
San Francisco is 7-3 in their last 10 games against the NL West, 4-12 in their last 16 games as a home underdog, and 16-5 in Vogelsong’s last 21 starts. Los Angeles is 3-7 in their last 10 game three of a series, 56-27 in their last 83 games as a favorite, and 39-18 in Kershaw’s last 57 starts. Los Angeles is 4-1 in Kershaw’s last five starts against the Giants.
With Kershaw on the mound all signs certainly point towards taking the Dodgers. However, we just can’t see the Giants getting swept at home, give us the Giants as a moneyline favorites at the sportsbook.
