Los Angeles Dodgers Odds
After a rare off day, the Los Angeles Dodgers take their booming bats to San Francisco on Tuesday for the opener of a three-game series and a six-game road trip. The Dodgers went 13-4 over a 17-games-in-17-days stretch that ended Sunday.
Los Angeles hit seven home runs against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, the most for a National League team in a game this season. Mookie Betts hit two of the seven homers. The Dodgers lead the majors with 59 homers and 171 runs.
After a relatively slow start, reigning NL MVP Cody Bellinger has homered in four of his past five games. Left-hander Julio Urias (2-0, 2.74 ERA) gets the start Tuesday. He is 0-0 with a 2.00 ERA two starts against the Giants this year.
San Francisco Giants Odds
The red-hot San Francisco Giants will take a six-game winning streak into Tuesday’s opener of a three-game home series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants are 3-4 against the Dodgers this season, with all of those games at Los Angeles.
Right-hander Johnny Cueto (2-0, 4.35 ERA) will make his third start against the Dodgers already this season. He is 1-0 with a 4.66 ERA in the previous two outings. San Francisco is moving on after fan-favorite Hunter Pence was designated for assignment.
Emerging star Mike Yastrzemski hit a go-ahead home run Sunday on his 30th birthday, his seventh of the season. He drove in the go-ahead run for the second consecutive game, and he ranks fourth in the NL with 23 RBIs.
