Total: 7.00 | 100.00 Under
Result: Loss
10* Under Dodgers/Giants (9:07 ET): The Dodgers ended the regular season on a 5-0 Over run. But as everyone knows, the MLB postseason is a different animal. They’ve been held to just three runs in two games and were shutout last night, 4-0 by the Giants, in Game 1 of the NLDS. Takeaway the walkoff HR in the Wild Card Game Tuesday and Los Angeles has scored only one run in the L2 games. With just five hits last night, it was pretty clear they missed 1B Max Muncy (who is out with a dislocated elbow). Despite the Dodgers’ vaunted reputation, I don’t necessarily see them bouncing back at the plate in Game 2.

One thing the visitors shouldn’t have to worry about tonight is their starting pitching. Julio Urias has been on fire down the stretch. He was the majors’ only 20-game winner in the regular season and has an 11-0 team start record his L11 trips to the mound with a 1.77 ERA! Urias has faced the Giants five times in 2021 and held them to 2 ER or less on four of those occasions. He’s allowed a total of only three runs the last three times he faced them. The Giants are also without their starting 1B, Brandon Belt, so they too have a weaker lineup than usual right now. The Under is 6-1-1 in Urias’ previous eight starts.

Kevin Gausman may not be able to match Urias’ gaudy WL record, but he does have a 21-12 TSR for the Giants to go along with a 2.81 ERA and 1.036 WHIP. That’s a lower ERA than Urias has. The Dodgers could only manage three singles and two doubles last night. Over the past nine games, the Giants’ staff has allowed a total of just 21 runs and posted three shutouts. So look for this to be a low-scoring Game 2. The Dodgers are 9-1 Under off their L10 losses and could not score more than three runs off Gausman any of the three times they faced him in the regular season. 10* Under Dodgers/Giants
