MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 11-4 in their last 15 games overall. The under is 21-5-2 in Kershaw's last 28 Saturday starts.
The Giants are 2-10 in their last 12 Saturday games. The under is 25-7-3 in Kershaw's last 35 starts versus San Francisco.
Already struggling mightily to score runs, now the Giants get to face Kershaw. With Los Angeles needing wins in order to climb back to a hopeful first place tie, it has the right pitcher on the mound today. Rodriguez might make it tough on LA hitters, but he won't have much offensive support. Go with the Dodgers on the runline.
