Before making any Giants vs. Dodgers picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it is 280-240 on top-rated MLB money-line picks since the start of the 2021 season, returning over $500 for $100 players. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.
The model knows that the Giants will be confident even as the underdog with Carlos Rodon taking the ball. The 29-year-old made his second consecutive all-star team after posting an 8-5 record with a 2.66 ERA and 131 strikeouts over 105 innings. Rodon is 1-1 in two starts against the Dodgers with a sterling 1.50 ERA.
The model also knows that the Dodgers have proven themselves as the best team in the National League throughout the first half of the season. Their +169 run differential is 86 runs better than any other team in the NL and trails only the Yankees (+199) in Major League Baseball. Los Angeles is on a four-game winning streak and won nine of its last 10 heading into the all-star break.
Now, the model has set its sights on Dodgers vs. Giants. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
