Total: 7.00 | 100.00 Under
But the Giants can’t be discounted here. They were the only team to win more games than the Dodgers in the regular season, which is why they had the homefield advantage for this series.That’s now gone, but the fact they give up only 3.5 runs per game on the road should not be discounted. Only Milwaukee allowed less runs this year away from home. Alex Wood will get the start tonight and not only did he post a 1.38 ERA and 0.692 WHIP in his L3 starts, all Giants wins, but the Under has cashed in each of his L6 starts. Wood hasn’t allowed more than 2 ER in any of those six outings. Remember the Dodgers were shutout in Game 1 of this series.
As good as the Giants have been at run suppression this year, the Dodgers are even stingier when they’re the home team as they give up only 3.3 rpg at Chavez Ravine. That’s tied (w/ Tampa Bay) for the lowest average by any home team. Opposing hitters are batting just .208 for the year here! I know Scherzer had two rocky starts at the end of the regular season (one was in Colorado) and an abbreviated outing in the WC Game. But I have full confidence in him and the Dodgers’ bullpen, which limited the Giants to just three hits in Game 2 and also shut down the Cardinals after Scherzer departed last Wednesday. 10* Under Giants/Dodgers
