Total: 7.00 | 100.00 Under
One thing the visitors shouldn’t have to worry about tonight is their starting pitching. Julio Urias has been on fire down the stretch. He was the majors’ only 20-game winner in the regular season and has an 11-0 team start record his L11 trips to the mound with a 1.77 ERA! Urias has faced the Giants five times in 2021 and held them to 2 ER or less on four of those occasions. He’s allowed a total of only three runs the last three times he faced them. The Giants are also without their starting 1B, Brandon Belt, so they too have a weaker lineup than usual right now. The Under is 6-1-1 in Urias’ previous eight starts.
Kevin Gausman may not be able to match Urias’ gaudy WL record, but he does have a 21-12 TSR for the Giants to go along with a 2.81 ERA and 1.036 WHIP. That’s a lower ERA than Urias has. The Dodgers could only manage three singles and two doubles last night. Over the past nine games, the Giants’ staff has allowed a total of just 21 runs and posted three shutouts. So look for this to be a low-scoring Game 2. The Dodgers are 9-1 Under off their L10 losses and could not score more than three runs off Gausman any of the three times they faced him in the regular season. 10* Under Dodgers/Giants
