LA Dodgers at San Francisco Giants MLB Lines Report

Written by on April 22, 2015

There is nothing more exciting in sports than playing the final game of the season and being handed the championship trophy at the end of it. That experience comes with a target being placed on your back, as you become aware that every single team in the league is going to look at you as the team to beat when the new season begins. The San Francisco Giants are wearing that target right now, and they are not handling it well, which is starting to show on their MLB odds.

A Look at the LA Dodgers at San Francisco Giants MLB Betting Lines Report & Game Info

Date: Thursday, April 23, 2015 Time: 3:45PM Venue: AT&T Park Opening Line: TBA
The Giants (5-10) are currently in the basement of the NL West, and they face the likelihood of slipping deeper into the cellar as they face the LA Dodgers for a 3-game series. The third game of the series goes on Thursday night, and they have already lost the opening game of the series 6-2. The season started well enough for the Giants, as they went 3-1 in their opening 4 games, but that was followed by an 8 game losing skid where the bats went as cold as the ice in Alaska. They only managed 15 runs during that stretch, and could find themselves in some real serious trouble if they can’t steal a game or two against the Dodgers. LA are coming into this season with some pretty hefty expectations hanging over their heads, thanks in large part to the ridiculously large payroll that they are carrying. At 9-4, the Dodgers are atop the NL West, but they are there thanks to a fantastic record at home to this point in the season. They are 8-1 at home, but have only played 4 games on the road. Their record away from home is not as juicy, as they are just 1-3 in those games.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets

The Dodgers will send Zack Greinke (2-0, 1.83 ERA) to the mound on Thursday, and he has been nothing short of spectacular in his three starts so far this season. The Giants will counter with Ryan Vogelsong (0-1, 10.45 ERA), who was shelled in his last outing, where he lasted just 22 innings before getting the hook. This looks like a great pitching match-up for the Dodger, who I expect to continue their great run of form.
