Dodgers Two Wins Away From 100 for Third Straight Full Season
Continuing our Dodgers vs Giants series odds preview: In some ways, many don’t count the Covid shortened season as something that ever happened. Los Angeles won a World Series in 2020 but as satisfying as that was you would think that a full-season title would be sweeter. The Boys in Blue are two wins away from hitting the century mark as they take on their in-state rival.
What’s most impressive about the perceived best team in baseball is their ability to be a profitable wager in 2022 despite having to overcome massive money lines on most nights.
Only four other teams have made more money this season, in fact, only four teams have been more profitable than the Dodgers since 2019 (1846 units).
As a favorite is where Los Angeles does its damage. Since 2019, LA is 347-159 (.686) +2578 units, tops in Major League Baseball. Buyer beware tonight with Dustin May getting the start. May is just 12-12 in his career, costing Dodger money to lose -545 units.
Webb, a Reliable Bright Side for Giants
Tonight will mark the 30th start by Giants right-hander, player Logan Webb, the most starts he’s ever made in his career. Webb has not been a profitable wager this season (-167 units) for the first time in his career, but there are a few starts left and a win tonight could get him close to even money on the year.
Since 2019, the Giants are 46-28 when Webb starts, producing 1460 units of profit. The 25-year-old has produced more winnings for bettors than any other team. 559 units won against LA. a 5-4 record, indicates that even though Webb is just a game over .500 against LA, he is a reliable wager as an underdog. His splits are interesting because as a dog in his career, Webb is just 16-18 but good enough to earn 616 units. As a home dog… as he is tonight, the California native is just 3-5, -172 units. Something to consider when making you wager.
Professionals and Public Money Divided
Concluding our Dodgers vs Giants series odds preview: Early betting odds Dodgers vs Giants, indicates that the professional money is all over the Giants with 97% of the consensus money pushing the money lines down from an opening number of -175 to -162. That’s a significant statement because when you see big money coming in on a dog, that means massive adjustment will happen, as it has in this one.
Professional money usually comes in on the favorite in an effort to get the better team at the smallest price possible.
Today’s movement indicates that some heavy hitters see an opportunity to take advantage of a number they clearly think is wrong. Total tickets (74%) favor Los Angeles, an indication that the smaller bettors like the Blue Crew but not enough to overcome the big money wagers.
Our official recommendation is to take the under (7.5). The under is 26-10-1 following a Dodger off day and the Giants have cashed eight straight under wagers. Let’s ride that streak as long as we can.Follow us on Twitter
