The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants get the baseball world to themselves on Thursday night in a deciding Game 5 of the NLDS.
The series so far has lived up to the hype of two bitter rivals with the two best records in all of baseball. The Dodgers turned to Walker Buehler in Game 4 to tie the series at two after the Giants jumped out to a 2-1 series lead.
The betting odds have this game projected as close as a game can get. The line is -110 both ways and BetMGM with a total of 7. The betting market expects a close, low-scoring game.
The prop betting market is an alternate way to get involved in the action without picking a side — at least with those odds.
The prop with the most bets at BetMGM is a combination of Mookie Betts hitting a home run and the Dodgers winning the game. That bet has odds of +800 ($100 bet for an $800 profit). Betts hit his only home run of the series in Game 4, but has seven hits in 20 at-bats.
The starting pitcher for the Giants will be Logan Webb, and at 24 years of age will be the youngest starter ever for San Francisco in a winner-take-all game. However, his breakout season is a major reason why San Francisco is here in the first place. Bettors are confident that success will continue, as they continue to bet the over on 5.5 strikeouts (+120).
Although the total is low, bettors might see the Dodgers starting reliever Corey Knebel as an opener and think there’s a chance the Giants can put up runs. The Giants alternate team total over 5.5 is the third prop getting the most bets at BetMGM.
The winner of Thursday night’s game advances to the NLCS where the Atlanta Braves are waiting.
