The San Francisco Giants’ second-half collapse has been extremely disappointing, as a struggling bullpen and lackluster offense has led the team to freefall out of the NL West lead. The team that leapfrogged them in the standings, the Los Angeles Dodgers, will look to distance themselves even further from San Fran on Wednesday.
- The Giants are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games on the road against the Dodgers.
- The Giants are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games after winning as an underdog.
- The Dodgers are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as home favorites.
Matt Moore and Kenta Maeda will get the nod. Moore (11-11, 4.06 ERA) is 2-1 with a 3.20 ERA in three career starts against the Dodgers. The hurler earned his second straight win and evened his record at 11-11 after allowing two runs in five innings on Friday against St. Louis.
Maeda (15-9, 3.24) has gone 7-2 with a 3.21 ERA in his last 10 starts with 53 strikeouts over that span. The 28-year-old rookie owns a 2-0 record and 3.00 ERA in two career starts against the Giants.
The Giants aren’t exactly a safe moneyline play, but they have been profitable in one area: cashing UNDER tickets on the road. In San Francisco’s last 11 games away from home, the UNDER is 9-2.
