Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin

Hyun-Jin Ryu limited the Pirates to two runs over seven innings and struck out 10 to win Friday. It's just the third career 10-strikeout game for Ryu, who often doesn't work deep enough into games to get there. He struck out 12 against the Rockies on Apr. 30, 2013 and 10 versus the Padres on July 13, 2014. Ryu is 3-1 with a 2.96 ERA, and he'll continue to be money in fantasy leagues until his next injury.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Madison Bumgarner gave up five runs and 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Yankees in Friday's loss. Bumgarner had a 3.12 ERA after four starts, but that was largely because he was charged with five unearned runs after his own error against the Dodgers on April 2. He's up to 4.30 after allowing nine earned runs his last two times out. It's not helping his trade value.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Dodgers have lost all four of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s last four starts on the road.

San Francisco

The Giants are 1-7 in Madison Bumgarner’s last eight starts.


Bumgarner struck out seven Rockies in a start on April 13 but has been lit up in each of his last two outings. He surrendered four runs over six innings in a loss to the Pirates two starts ago and allowed five runs and 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Yankees his last time out. He’s allowing a ton of hard contact, his strikeout rate is down and he’s not generating ground balls. Furthermore, the Giants are 3-10 in Bumgarner’s last 13 starts versus the Dodgers and are just 2-5 in his last seven meetings when Bum faces Ryu.

The Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (+125)
