Why you should back the Dodgers

Los Angeles was on an absolute tear entering the 2022 MLB All-Star break, winning 15 of its last 17 games before hosting the All-Star festivities at Dodger Stadium. Its 60-30 record is the best in the National League and its +169 run differential is more than double the next-best run differential team in the NL (Mets +83).

Dodgers catcher Will Smith has been particularly hot of late, with a 1.009 OPS in the month of July. Smith is currently 7-for-15 with a home run and four RBI during the team’s current four-game winning streak. Freddie Freeman has also been blistering this month, with four home runs, 12 RBI and a 1.177 OPS since July 1.

Why you should back the Giants

The Giants will be confident even as the underdog with Rodon taking the ball. The 29-year-old made his second consecutive All-Star team after posting an 8-5 record with a 2.66 ERA and 131 strikeouts over 105 innings. Rodon is 1-1 in two starts against the Dodgers with a sterling 1.50 ERA.

Rodon twirled six scoreless innings and struck out eight batters in his last start against the Dodgers on June 12. Austin Slater and Mike Yastrzemski both delivered solo home runs to help the Giants wrap up a three-game sweep in that contest. Joc Pederson has just a .459 OPS this month but leads the team with 17 home runs and 43 RBI, and they’ll need him to get back to being the offensive catalyst on Thursday.

How to make Dodgers vs. Giants picks

SportsLine’s model is leaning over on the total, projecting 8.8 combined runs. It also says one side of the money line has all the value. You can only get the model’s MLB picks at SportsLine.
