The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, in true rivalry fashion, have duked it out all season long, and the Giants, for the most part, have been able to hold off this talented Dodgers team. However, tonight, it all comes down to one game. How fitting?!

Los Angeles is sending MLB leader and 20-game winner Jose Urias to the bump, while the Giants will have Logan Webb on the mound. Webb is 11-3 this season with 3.03 ERA. 

Game 3 was the ultimate pitchers’ duel, with the Giants coming away with a 1-0 victory. With this type of talent on the hill for both sides, this decisive Game 5 could yield similar results. 

Let’s take a look at the betting preview for tonight’s Game 5 with the season on the line and an NLCS date with the Atlanta Braves looming.

Dodgers vs Giants Odds Today

According to WynnBET, it’s only fitting that the decisive Game 5 of this fierce rivalry would come in as a pick ‘em on the moneyline, with both teams holding -105 odds (bet $10.50 to win $10) to win. The run line paints a slightly different picture, with the Dodgers holding the -1.5 designation, which carries, +165 odds to cover. The Giants are +1.5, with -185 odds to cover that line. 

The over/under is set at 7 runs, with the over price at +100 and the under price at -130.

Giants Pitcher Today

As mentioned above, Logan Webb will be on the hill for the Giants. He is 1-0 in his lone 2021 postseason start, pitching 7 ⅔ scoreless innings in Game 1 of this series en route to a 4-0 Giants win. If he can deliver a similar performance, it’s hard to imagine San Francisco not advancing. 

Dodgers vs Giants Prediction

Despite the Dodgers sending a fantastic pitcher to the mound, the Giants are doing the same, and they’re doing it at home, where Webb has already pitched a gem this series. The crowd at Oracle Park is going to be absolutely rocking and despite all the talent they have, Los Angeles’ lineup has been really inconsistent this series.

We’re going to go with a 3-1 Giants victory in a tight and exciting battle to advance to the NLCS.
