LA Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants Pick – MLB June 12, 2022

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants close up their three-game series at Oracle Park this afternoon. The Giants are looking at a sweep following a 3-2 win on Saturday.

Sammy Long opened the game for 3 innings while the Giants rode the bullpen to hold on. The Giants had a 2-0 lead going into the top of the 8th inning; then it was 2-1, 3-1, and then finally 3-2. The Dodgers had something going but couldn’t finish.

The Dodgers maintain a half-game lead in the NL West over the Padres. Thanks to back-to-back wins, the Giants have pulled within 4.5 games of the Dodgers.

It’s a long season, and winning the first two months doesn’t mean much. The Dodgers look vulnerable in 2022. We’ll see how well things play after the trade deadline.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Dodgers add an arm for the rotation at the deadline. Martin Perez?

This is the Dodgers we’re talking about, so this is expected. Walker Buehler was added to the 14-day IL to complicate their pitching staff more. Clayton Kershaw recently made a return, but now Buehler is injured.

Something has been off with Buehler this season, so a break is likely best for him. Julio Urias will close out the series this afternoon at Oracle Park. Carlos Rodon goes for the Giants.

Dodgers vs. Giants Prediction:

Julio Urias might be the guy to prevent the Dodgers from getting swept at Oracle Park. Urias is entering this afternoon with an ERA of 2.78 and a 1.11 WHIP. He has posted an ERA of 3.12 and a 1.27 WHIP in his previous three attempts.

Note that Urias has allowed 1 or no earned runs in four of his previous five starts this season. He is coming off a solid performance against a tough Mets offense, with 3 hits and 1 earned run conceded in 5.1 innings of work.

Urias has been a touch better on the road, with an ERA of 2.40 and a 1.20 WHIP across 30 innings of work.

The Giants are hitting .176 with 2 home runs against Urias in 132 at-bats. The bullpen has been in good form this season for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers have an ERA of 3.56 and a 1.15 WHIP from their relievers.

The key to success for the Giants will likely be found in the arm of Carlos Rodon. Rodon hasn’t been perfect, with a 3.51 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. However, I wouldn’t want to face Rodon at Oracle Park.

LA Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants Betting Trends:

Dodgers

  • Record (Last 10): 4-6
  • 2-5 overall in their previous seven games after a loss
  • 0-6 overall in their previous six games after losing their first two games of a series
  • UNDER is 4-0-1 in their previous five games after a loss
  • UNDER is 5-0-1 in their previous six games versus a left-handed starter
  • UNDER is 6-1-1 in their previous eight games as a favorite on the road

Giants

  • Record (Last 10): 5-5
  • 4-0 overall in their previous four games versus a team with a winning percentage better than 60%
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games as an underdog at home
  • UNDER is 4-0-2 in their previous six games
  • UNDER is 3-0-2 in their previous five games versus the NL West
  • UNDER is 6-2-1 in their previous nine games at San Francisco

  • Rodon has an ERA of 2.67 and a 1.19 WHIP at home this season. He hasn’t been able to get into top form on the road, with a 4.22 ERA and 1.31 WHIP but a threat at Oracle Park.

    The Dodgers are hitting just .145 with 1 home run in 59 at-bats versus Rodon.

    Chris Taylor is the only Dodger that has gone deep on Rodon in his career. The pitching has not been what the Giants have expected this season, but Rodon has been one constant in the rotation.

    I’d look at the UNDER in another 4-2 or 3-2 final in the series finale at Oracle Park.
