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

It is only the start of the season, and while there are a lot of games left, the Dodgers again are among the favorites in MLB odds to make the playoffs and win the World Series. After making so many splash moves in the offseason to improve the roster, it almost seems inevitable.

That becomes even more obvious after the series against the Cardinals. Mookie Betts and Teoscar Hernandez each had three home runs over the four-game series while Shohei Ohtani has yet to be the dominant player everyone knows he can be.


In the last game of the series against the Cardinals, the Dodgers found a way to come back after being down 4-0 going into the bottom of the sixth. They would score five runs, two in the sixth and three more in the eighth, to secure the series win. Max Muncy hit a pinch-hit home run in the eighth to seal the Dodgers’ win.

Given how good the Dodgers have looked at the start of the season, they should be able to take advantage of facing a pitcher with only five career starts for MLB betting. The issue would be that Paxton is not exactly the top starting pitcher on the staff, but he should be able to hold his own enough to get the win.

 

Take A Look At These Other 2 MLB Special Articles

Giants vs Dodgers Over/Under Pick: Over 9 (Ev)

The MLB lines for the over/under in this game are way too low. The Giants have a pitcher with only five career starts facing one of the most talented lineups in the league. On the other hand, the Dodgers have a starting pitcher that is 35 years old and has shown signs of falling off over the last three seasons, along with dealing with injuries.

The pitching matchup alone leans this game toward the over, but the Giants have also hit the over in all four of their games this season while the Dodgers have done so in three of six. With what this line is set at, it is incredibly hard not to back the over.

 

 

Giants vs Dodgers Player Prop Pick: Mookie Betts Over 0.5 Runs + RBIs (-164)

Betts has gotten off to a hot start in 2024, already making a massive impact on the offense. He has a .500 batting average with four home runs and 10 RBIs. Given what Betts has been able to do through the first six games of the season, he can keep that going. The last game was his first poor appearance of the season, going 0-for-4, but look for Betts to get back on track against the Giants.
