LA Dodgers at San Francisco Giants MLB Lines Preview
When teams and their MLB odds fans look at their schedule for the final week of the season, they tend to hope that the games will still mean something, or that they will be rendered meaningless because they have already clinched a playoff spot. The 4-game series between the Dodgers and the Giants still means something for now, but that could all change with a single win by the Dodgers.

We have all been waiting for the Dodgers (87-69) to just go ahead and clinch the division, but they seem to be going out of their way to make it as difficult for themselves as possible. A single win against the Giants in this series will suffice, but they blew an opportunity to get the job done in the opening game, which they ended up losing 3-2 in extra innings. That loss takes the Dodgers to just 2-8 in their last 10, which has allowed the Giants to cut the division lead to 5.
l trio of games against the Padres to end the season would suddenly look not quite as comfortable as we might first have imagined. Mike Bolsinger (6-5, 3.48 ERA) will be looking to avoid his third straight loss when he takes to the mound on Wednesday.
No team wants to live in the past, but the Giants (82-74) have to be looking at the 3 straight 5-4 losses they took last week. Finding a way to win one or two of those would have made this series a whole lot nervier for the Dodgers than it already is. That didn’t happen, though, but the Giants have found a way to bounce back and reel off three straight wins to keep things interesting for at least one more day.
The way they have battled to the end will have them finishing up the season on something of a positive note, but they will still not be happy at having to hand over their World Series crown to another team by the time this season is all said and done. Mike Leake (10-10, 3.89 ERA) will be the man on the mound for the Giants.
