San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers 5/4/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The San Francisco Giants will go against the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Dodger Stadium, LA, on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at 10:10 PM ET.

 

Carlos Rodon (3-0, 1.17 ERA) had one of the finest starts to 2022, going 3-0 in four appearances, with his only no-decision heading in his first start, in which he surrendered only one run and struck out 12. With 14 strikeouts per nine innings pitched, he now leads the league.

 

On Tuesday, he will face a Dodgers offense that is averaging 4.86 runs per game, which is the second-best figure in MLB.

 

Rodon only faced these batters in a limited capacity (40 plate appearances), yet he pitched to a .211 batting average and.316 slugging percentage. Despite his strikeout prowess stretching back to last year, he only struck out 15.1 percent of this bunch.

 

  • The Giants were underdogs in six matches and walked away with the win twice.
  • The Giants posted a record of 12-10-0 against the spread this year.
  • Rodon will attempt to prolong a five-game run of going five or more innings

San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions 5/4/2022

 

Julio Urias (1-1, 2.50 ERA) is off to a good start in 2022, with three strong outings since his first start of the year, when he only lasted two innings and surrendered three runs.

 

Last season, Urias topped Major League Baseball in victories with a 20-3 record. On Tuesday night, though, the Dodgers have their breakout star in Julio Urias.

 

The 25-year-old Urias always had a tremendous arm (3.07 lifetime ERA), but he didn’t have much of a chance to display his actual ability as a starter because the Dodgers largely used him in the bullpen until 2020.

 

But, like Rodon, Urias was ultimately able to breakthrough last year. He went 20-3 in that season, racking up eight more victories than he had in his whole career up to that moment. Over 185.2 innings thrown, he had a 2.96 ERA and 1.018 WHIP while striking out 195 hitters.

 

  • This year, the Dodgers won 14 out of the 23 matches when favored.
  • Los Angeles and its opponents hit the over in six of their 23 matches with a total this season.
  • Urías pitched five or more innings in three consecutive matches and will look to extend that streak.

San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Following two matches against the Nationals over the weekend in which the Giants allowed 14 and 11 runs, it’s understandable that manager Gabe Kepler would want to improve his team’s pitching.

 

To that point, the Giants’ bullpen does not measure up to that of the Los Angeles Dodgers. It isn’t horrible in any way, yet it is. To the Dodgers’ league-best numbers in both, their 214 batting average surrendered and 1.12 WHIP rank 12th and ninth, respectively.

 

As a result, even if the Giants manage to get to Urias before the Dodgers can get to Rodon, the Dodgers are significantly better suited to hold the line. While Rodon is unquestionably stronger than Urias at creating whiffs, the Giants’ strikeout rate is 13th compared to the Dodgers’ 21st, virtually wiping out Rodon’s advantage.

 

While the Giants may have a higher run average, zooming out paints a picture of the Dodgers being the stronger offensive team. They have higher OPS, wOBA, wRC+, HardHit percent, and many other advanced measures than they do. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 4-1.
