Giants vs Dodgers Series Odds: The Dodgers continue to be the favorites to win the World Series. With just 29 games left on their MLB schedule, it doesn’t appear that will change heading into October. The Giants are eight games out of a wild card spot after winning 107 games last season. Before we dive deeper into our Giants vs Dodgers series odds preview, let’s look at some of the relevant trends that will help us beat the odds throughout this series.
The Giants have lost seven straight games at Dodger Stadium and eight straight overall. Part of the reason the Giants have fallen out of the playoff picture is their 6-21 record in their last 27 games against the National League West. Home has been kind to Los Angeles, winning 66 of their last 85 (.777) home games dating back to last season.
Webb Hoping to Finally Get Run Support from Offense
The MLB has the Giants going where they don’t need to be with 30 games left in the season. Their faint playoff light is likely to fade to black with a trip to face Los Angels Dodgers to win World Series odds favorites.
Logan Webb, whose run support has been non-existent, toes the rubber in game one. Webb was 2-4 in the month of August, but his 2.83 ERA indicates his record deserved a better fate.
Webb’s run support and a defense that continues to let the righty down. Of his 27 starts in 2022, Webb has enjoyed less than three runs or less,14 times.
Webb has allowed seven runs over his last two starts, but none of them were earned. The Giants completed a sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies this past weekend but will need a miracle to get themselves back into the postseason.
Dodgers Remain Class of Major League Baseball
What can you say about the high-powered Dodgers that hasn’t already been said? They are clearly the favorite to win the World Series despite having to tiptoe through injuries to their starting rotation.
They’re the sixth most profitable team in the majors with 690 units won in 2022. Andrew Heaney will make just his 11th start after battling a shoulder issue for most of the year, It appears that the former OSU Cowboy, is heating up with double-digit strikeouts in two of his last three outings.
The Dodgers are 8-2 when Heaney starts. Unlike Webb, Heaney gets plenty of run support with seven or more in five of his 10 starts. The 31-year-old has already shown he can dominate the Giants this season with seven strikeouts in four innings on August 1st, an 8-2 Los Angeles win.
Bettors Have Tickets on Los Angeles, Under
Early betting patterns show that -225 isn’t enough to deter bettors from riding along with the Dodgers for the rest of the year. The opening line of -200 has been bet up, even though wagering on big favorites is not the proper way to build a bankroll.
The World Series favorites are different. It doesn’t matter who’s on the MLB schedule, the Blue Crew have found a way to dominate. Since July, LA is 45-13 and 36-6 in blowout games (5 run difference or more). They’ve beaten the Giants in 10 of 13 meetings in 2022.
So with so much dominance how should we bet on this series? The Giants vs Dodgers series odds will likely be out of an acceptable range for our bankroll.
Let’s jump on the over tonight and throughout the series. Tonight the number has been bet down to 7.5 (o-120). When we’re dealing with a team that can hit the number by themselves on most nights, it’s hard not to take this generous offering.Follow us on Twitter
