PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION
As of this writing, 69% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Dodgers to win on the money line. Meanwhile, 69% of the betting tickets are on the under.
I might be chasing ghosts tonight in L.A. but I do believe this game will go differently than the last two. After the under cashed easily in both of San Francisco's 1-0 victories, I like the over tonight. The only reason Holland made the Giants' starting rotation out of spring training is because of injuries to Madison Bumgarner and Jeff Samardzija. Granted, Holland did pitch well this spring but he was brutal last season while allowing 26 of his 31 home runs to right-handed hitters. On the other side, the Giants might struggle to get to Maeda but I see this being a 5-4 game.
