Dodgers vs Giants NLDS Game 5
It all comes down to this; two of the league’s three 100 game winners go head to head with only one able to move on. Let’s break down our best bets here in game five of the NLDS.
Giants ML (-106)
The best ML F5 team was the Giants this season. The Giants finished 45-22-8 on the F5 money line making them the third most profitable team to get on this past season behind the White Sox and the Rockies. The Dodgers were a bit more of a late comeback team, going 40-29-12 on the road during the first five this season. Logan Webb is getting the start for the Giants and the numbers for him this season are nothing short of special. In Webb’s starts, the Giants are 22-5. The Giants have not lost a game at home that Webb has started this season (13-0), and against a left-handed starter Webb is 7-0. The Giants are 4-0 against the Dodgers in games Webb starts. We have seen this exact pitching matchup three times through the regular season where Webb was excellent, only allowing a combined five runs and going five plus innings in each start. Dodgers hitters are only hitting a combined .208 off Webb in over 100 at bats. Webb has made the difference for the Giants when they go against Urias. Urias has faced the Giants six times including his one postseason start and is 3-3 against them. Though, the Dodgers have beaten the Giants in all of Urias’ starts where Webb is not on the mound.
Brandon Crawford Over 0.5 RBIs: +230
A fun prop bet here on a game that doesn’t have too many other angles, but this one has great value on a proven player. Crawford has good numbers against Urias, hitting .294 in 17 career at bats. Crawford led the Giants in RBIs this season and it really wasn’t even close. Crawford had 90 RBIs and second on the team was Mike Yastrzemski with 71. In the game where they faced Urias earlier in this series, Crawford was responsible for driving in the only two Giants runs of the evening. Given the line and his regular season and postseason success, this one is definitely worth a play.
