Today’s matchup is between the San Francisco Giants (32-20) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (31-21). The Giants have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Dodgers have won 3 of their last 5 games.

The Giants are starting Kevin Gausman (RHP), on the mound who is 5-0 on the season pitching a 1.53 ERA, 2.31 FIP, .218 wOBA, K% of 30.6%, BB% of 6.5%, 88.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.85 WHIP in 64.2 innings pitched.

The Dodgers are starting Clayton Kershaw (LHP), who is 7-3 on the season with a 2.94 ERA, 2.68 FIP, .250 wOBA, K% of 28.3%, BB% of 4.0%, 87.6 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.90 WHIP in 64.1 innings pitched.

The Giants are 29th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Dodgers are 15th.

On the hitting side, the Giants have a .317 wOBA and a .316 OBP. The Dodgers have a .329 wOBA and a .343 OBP. The Giants have 67 HRs this season while the Dodgers have 57 HRs.

We have 2 elite pitchers on the mound though Kevin Gausman has been in better form than Kershaw. That said Gausman has been overachieving and I expect his ERA to dip a bit over the next couple of games. With the Dodgers relieving & more consistent average when at-bat I like them to get the win.
