Tonight in Los Angeles Johnny Cueto and the struggling Giants will try to make up some ground in the NL West, while the Dodgers will look to extend a modest three-game win streak. The Giants have been a team to fade on the road, as they’ve won just five of their last 18 away from San Francisco, and they’ve been even worse at Dodger Stadium, winning just one of their last eight there.
- The Giants are 1-5 in their last six games after a loss.
- Chase Utley has a .357 AVG in 28 AB’s vs Cueto.
- The Dodgers have gone OVER in 8 of their last 10 games after a win.
Luckily for the Giants and anyone who plans on betting on them tonight, they’ve been absolute money when Cueto takes the hill on the road, as they’re 11-2 in his last 13 road starts. He was excellent in his one start at Dodger Stadium this season where he allowed just one run in 7.1 innings pitched while racking up seven strikeouts.
The Dodgers will send Rich Hill to the mound who will finally make his first start in a Dodgers uniform after being acquired at the trade deadline. A lingering blister has kept him on the shelf since mid-July, but he’ll look to pick up where he left off as he has a 2.25 ERA through 14 starts so far this season.
The total for the game opened the day at 7.5 runs which is a mark these teams have gone UNDER in four of their last six games against each other.
