Bet Dodgers to Complete Sweep of Giants

Wednesday will be the series finale between these two National League West rivals, the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. Given the Dodgers’ roster, it makes sense that MLB predictions have sided with them as they go for the sweep in this series.

In the opening game of the series, the Dodgers won because of their star power, with the top of the lineup producing all but one of the nine hits in the 8-3 win. On Tuesday, the Dodgers won 5-4 behind more big performances from their star players and support from the bottom of the lineup.

Kyle Harrison, the Giants starter, only made seven appearances last season after being called to the big leagues. Harrison could be a staple in the rotation and he got off to a good start, pitching six innings, allowing two runs off two home runs in his first appearance of 2024. However, he did give up six hits.

Tyler Glasnow will get the start for the Dodgers. He has pitched twice this season, allowing three runs in 11 innings with eight strikeouts. His experience and being one of the top pitchers in the league lean MLB picks today in the Dodgers’ favor.

Giants vs Dodgers ATS Pick: Dodgers -1½ (-105)

The Dodgers will have an advantage in almost every game this season. In the first eight games of 2024, the MLB spread has sided with the Dodgers, and it will again in the series finale against the Giants.

One of the biggest reasons the Dodgers are favored in this matchup is that they have their presumptive ace on the mound. Glasnow pitched on two opening days in 2024: one in South Korea for the first game of the season on March 20 and again on March 28, when the regular season started for everyone else. In both games, the Dodgers won and Glasnow pitched well.

On top of that, it is hard to compete with this lineup headlined by Shohei Ohtani and Mookie Betts. Plus, they are getting help from players in the back end of the lineup, like Teoscar Hernandez, who has hit four home runs. With how the Dodgers are playing, it is hard for MLB lines not to lean in their favor and bettors should keep backing them.

 


In the second game of this series, the Dodgers went with a bullpen day, which might have led to a closer matchup. In this series finale, they are leaning on one of their aces while the offense is still hot, with Betts hitting his fifth home run of the season and Freddie Freeman going 3-for-4 on Tuesday.

 

 

Giants vs Dodgers Over/Under Pick: Over 8½ (-105)

The over in this game makes a lot of sense for MLB picks, despite the high chance Glasnow will keep a lid on the Giants’ offense. That is because of the Dodgers’ offense and how good it has been. They haven’t scored fewer than five runs yet in 2024 and will face a pitching staff with the third-highest ERA.

The Giants’ struggling pitching staff has led to most of their games being high-scoring, and they have hit the over in every matchup this season. The Dodgers‘ offense, with all their star players, will only be able to keep that trend going.

 

 

Giants vs Dodgers Player Prop Pick: Freddie Freeman Over 1.5 Total Bases (From Hits) (-104)

Freeman has gotten off to a hot start. The player with the second most hits last season already has 12 and a batting average of .414. A big reason for his great early stats has been this series, getting three hits in each of the first two games against the Giants. He should be able to keep that going in the third game, helping clear this bet.

Questions of the Day

Who will lead this game in runs batted in?


The Dodgers will likely win this game, so picking one of their players makes sense. Despite all of the Dodgers’ talent, Teoscar Hernandez has been one of the hottest bats in the lineup.

Will the Dodgers lineup be able to get to Kyle Harrison?


Kyle Harrison had a good first appearance of the season, but the Dodgers will be a tall task for a young pitcher.
