Start Time: June 29 2021, 10:10 PM

The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the San Francisco Giants for the middle-game of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, June 29, 2021. 

The Dodgers are a home favorite priced at -145 while the Giants are priced at +125 and the total set at 7.5 runs. 

San Francisco Giants

The Giants have a solid 50-28 record, good for first place in the National League West, 2½ games ahead of second-place LA Dodgers. While the Giants have picked up the majority of their wins at home, 24 of their 50 wins have come on the road. 

They had won five in a row before closing out last week with a 6-2 loss at Oakland followed by a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

The Giants are averaging 4.97 runs per game (7th) with a .242 batting average (10th) and a .759 on-base percentage (4th). They average 1.50 home runs per game which is the second best mark in the major leagues, but they’re also striking out fairly often.

The Giants have a 37-39-2 over/under record overall in 2021 and a 19-22 over/under record in away games. 

Tonight’s starter Kevin Gausman has an 8-1 record with a 1.49 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP while averaging 6.1 innings per outing. This looks like it’ll be the veteran’s best season ever. In his last start, Gausman held the Angels to one run on four hits and nine strikeouts in seven innings of a no-decision at LA Angels. The Giants won the game 9-3.

The Giants bullpen has a 16-12 record and 28 saves in 44 save opportunities. Their relievers’ 3.31 ERA ranks 5th in baseball.
