Dodgers vs Giants: Latest Betting Odds, Predictions and Picks for September 16

The Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West, so there’s no pressure there. The Giants are 8.5 games out of the third and final NL Wild Card spot, so there’s not much chance of that happening. All in all, this Dodgers/Giants series that looked at the beginning of the season like it might be pivotal has turned out to be a bit anticlimactic, with the two teams playing mostly for pride. The Dodgers will play with an eye on October, while the Giants will play with an eye on trying not to finish under .500 the year after winning 107 games.

In the first game of the series, Los Angeles sends Dustin May to the mound for his fifth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. May had two solid starts against the Marlins, a clunker against the Padres in L.A., and then a mediocre start in San Diego that was hampered by terrible weather. He’s looking to take a step forward and begin making his case for a spot in the Dodgers’ postseason rotation.

The Giants counter with Logan Webb, who beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles eleven days ago. Overall this year, Webb is 13-8 with a 2.88 ERA, although his ERA is 2.68 if you take out his 4.76 mark against the Dodgers.
