The 2023 MLB season continues on Monday with an exciting showdown between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. LA is fresh off a series in which it lost three of four games to the Arizona Diamondbacks, while San Francisco lost two of three games against the Kansas City Royals.

The Dodgers will look to get this series started off on the right foot with Julio Urias (2-0, 1.50 ERA) on the mound. On the other side, the Giants will aim to get the best of their division rival as Logan Webb (0-2, 6.55 ERA) draws the start. Can San Francisco send the Oracle Park crowd home happy tonight?

Dodgers vs. Giants Betting Trends

  • The Dodgers are 5-0 straight up in their last five games against San Francisco.
  • The total has hit the under in 12 of the Dodgers' last 18 games in April.
  • San Francisco is 6-3 straight up in its last nine home games.
  • The total has hit the over in 12 of San Francisco's last 17 games.

Dodgers vs. Giants Prediction & Pick

Webb has not gotten off to the start San Francisco fans were hoping for, as he has more hits allowed (13) than innings pitched (11). He has allowed 4 earned runs in each of his first two starts and now has to face a Dodgers lineup that he owns a 4.44 ERA against in his MLB career.

Those struggles give Los Angeles a huge advantage on the mound as Urias has looked nothing short of dominant across two starts. The 26-year-old has allowed only 2 earned runs on 9 hits (0 walks) and tallied 12 strikeouts in 12 innings of work. Urias also owns a career 2.12 ERA against the Giants.

To drive the point home, Urias posted an impressive ERA of 1.94 on the road last season as 11 of his 17 wins on the year came away from Dodger Stadium. LA may only need 3 runs to win this game, which is a mark they've hit in eight of their 10 games to start the 2023 campaign.

Final Score Prediction: Dodgers: 5 | Giants: 2

Dodgers vs. Giants Best Bet

I'm going to stick with Urias as my best bet and back him to notch over 5.5 strikeouts. He has crossed that mark in each of his first two starts and faces a San Francisco lineup that ranks dead last in the majors in batter strikeouts per game (11.3) on Monday. The Giants are hitting just .237 against left-handed pitchers this year and will be whiffing a ton. This prop bet is worth taking on juiced odds.

Bet: Julio Urias Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-156)
