San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Prediction

The San Francisco Giants will look to stop the bleeding against the Dodgers with Alex Cobb on the mound tonight. Cobb has been terrific for an average team. He's got a 6-6 record but is holding a 3.48 ERA on the year. In the last 30 days, he's been even better, having a 2.90 xFIP. He's struck out 23% of batters while only walking 4.9% of batters. On top of that, Cobb has earned over 65% of ground balls while limiting line drives to under 20% over the last 30 days. The Dodgers, on the other hand, are hitting a .189 ISO and wOBA of .327 against righties in the last month. The top of the order has been giving consistent production, but the bottom of the order has been non-existent. Joey Gallo, Chris Taylor, and Cody Bellinger have struggled to get any production. However, they're all walked at a high rate. Cobb is just not a likely candidate to walk many batters.

On the flip side. Andrew Heaney will get the call for the Dodgers. He's a lefty with a 3-2 record to go along with a 2.84 ERA. He's resurrecting his career in Los Angeles. He's holding a 3.50 xFIP with 35.2% of strikeouts over the last 30 days. He's also kept walks down to 4.4% while allowing just 11.1% of line drives. The Giants have struck out 28.3% of the time against lefties as a projected lineup. They've also hit just 17.3% of line drives. David Villar, Evan Longoria, and Lewis Brinson have been consistent hitters, but only Evan Longoria has been able to keep the strikeouts down against lefties. Heaney has struggled a bit against righties lately, allowing a .353 wOBA and ISO of .354 in his last 70 plate appearances against them. All three bats I mentioned have potential as right-handed bats. Heaney could ultimately earn a high rate of strikeouts and escape any damage. So with that said, give me the Under 7.5 in this matchup.
