The NLDS matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants will come down to a pivotal Game 5 clash Thursday at Oracle Park.
Los Angeles’ Game 2 winner Julio Urias will be on the mound, where he will be matched up against Giants’ Game 1 winner Logan Webb.
This series has seen a dramatic shift in total runs scored on a game-to-game basis. Games 1 and 3 were relatively low-scoring pitchers’ duels, while games 2 and 4 featured lopsided wins that had plenty of offensive fireworks.
The total has seen a 50-50 split over the four games of this series, with the over hitting in two of the last three games.
Los Angeles forced a Game 5 with a stellar performance from Mookie Betts in Game 4. Betts went 2 for 4 with a huge home run and 3 RBI. He was instrumental in the Dodgers’ 7-2 win.
Game 4 had a total of 8.0 and the over hit as a late homer from Will Smith cashed the over.
Los Angeles’ consistent and aggressive ability to men on base makes the under a tough play on most occasions, though San Francisco’s clutch pitching has complicated that equation.
Our latest MLB PRO Report showcases which side experienced bettors are leaning on for the total on this Game 5 clash at Oracle Park.
