  • The Los Angeles Dodgers are -178 road favorites over the San Francisco Giants in the Dodgers vs Giants Odds on Sunday, September 18
  • LA has won 11 out of 12 straight up from the Giants
  • The Dodgers are 5-0 both SU and against the runline in the last five games at San Francisco

When it comes to dodging the San Francisco Giants (69-75, 39-34 home), the Los Angeles Dodgers (99-44, 50-26 away) are proving to be an artful bunch. Especially so, it would appear, when they are operating in the land of the Giants.

Entering play Saturday, the Dodgers are 11-1 straight up and against the runline in the past dozen games against the Giants. When Los Angeles is playing at San Francisco, the Dodgers are 5-0 both SU and ATR.

Oddsmakers are projecting this LA run of success to be continuing as the clubs complete a three-game weekend series. It’s the Dodgers who are set as -178 road favorites. At 89-54, the Dodgers are the best team in the National League against the runline this season.

The MLB lineups will be set for the first pitch at Oracle Park at 7:08 pm ET on Sunday, September 18. The weather forecast is calling for rain with 11 mph wind and a temperature of 71 degrees.

MLB betting trends are showing the Dodgers as +150 favorites to win the NL flag in the MLB pennant odds. In the World Series odds,  Los Angeles is also  the +360 chalk.

Dodgers vs Giants Probable Pitchers

Dodgers left-hander Andrew Heaney gets 34.6% of his outs via strikeouts. That places him among the top 3% of all MLB pitchers. However, his xwOBAcon of .404 rates within the bottom percentile of MLB hurlers.

Heaney has worked at least five innings in each of his last four starts and is 2-1 over that span. The southpaw endured two stints on the IL this season due to shoulder pain.

He’s 1-1 with a 3.12 ERA in six road starts. In two starts against the Giants this year, Heaney is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA. Over his career, Heaney has made five starts against San Francisco and is 1-3 with a 6.92 ERA.

2.48 ERA 3.48
3.48 xERA 3.09
1.07 WHIP 1.27
5.60 SO/W Ratio 3.59

Giants right-hander Alex Cobb has won his last three decisions. He’s allowed one earned run over 20 innings pitched in those three games.

However, in four other starts between those victories, he was touched for nine earned runs over 21 innings of work. Cobb allowed three earned runs and seven hits over 4.1 innings against the Dodgers on September 7. He didn’t factor in the decision as LA won 7-3.

In three starts against the Dodgers this season, Cobb is 0-1 with a 5.51 ERA. That’s also his entire career slate against LA’s NL squad.

Batting Average vs Starting Pitchers

Dodgers Batters Batting Average vs Cobb Giants Batters Batting Average vs Heaney
Austin Barnes .333 Lewis Brinson .333
Mookie Betts .286 Willie Calhoun .364

Max Muncy .500 Wilmer Flores .400
Trayce Thompson .286 Luis Gonzalez 1.000
Justin Turner .261 David Villar .667
Miguel Vargas .500 Mike Yastrzemski .400

Even though he’s only batting .286 against Cobb, Mookie Betts of the Dodgers has gone deep twice and driven in six runs over 35 at-bats. Joey Gallo is also hitting .286 with a solo homer. Justin Turner is 2-for-3 (.667) with a home run and three RBI.

Thairo Estrada of the Giants is 1-for-2 (.500) against Heaney and that hit was a solo homer. Wilmer Flores is 4-for-10 (.400) with a homer and two RBI. Willie Calhoun is 4-for-11 (.364) with a solo homer. Lewis Brinson is 1-for-3 (.333) with a homer and two RBI

Dodgers vs Giants Prediction

A year ago, the Dodgers and Giants battled down to the wire for the right to be declared NL West champions. This year, it’s been no contest.

Utter dominance by LA is the only way to describe the season series. The Dodgers have won 15 of the last 19 meetings.
