MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 10-4 in their last 14 games overall. Los Angeles is 35-16 in its last 51 Friday games.
The Giants are 7-19 in their last 26 games overall. The under is 20-6-1 in the last 27 Giants home games.
Ryu should be able to right the ship for Los Angeles as he's been fantastic on the mound this season when healthy. He'll face a weak Giants offense in this one. While Bumgarner is also having a very solid season, run support will be an issue and the Dodgers have a strong familiarity of him due to years of matchups. I'm taking favored LA here.
