San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers CashBet Odds Analysis

On the whole, it’s no surprise that the Dodgers are prohibitive favorites with the sportsbook odds.  LA has won seven consecutive National League West titles.  In 2019 the Dodgers posted 106 wins.  By contrast, the Giants are coming off three straight losing seasons.  Projections for the 2020 season call for more of the same.

Probable Starting Pitchers and Relievers

Right-hander Johnny Cueto is expected to make the start for the Giants.  On this occasion, Cueto tries to relaunch a career that has been stalled for three seasons.  Cueto has pitched only 69 innings the past two campaigns. Previously he went 18-5 with a 2.70 earned run average in 2016.  That was his last full season.

Left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his ninth opening day start in the last 10 years for the Dodgers.  Kershaw was 16-5 with a 3.03 earned run average in 2019.  Since 2011 he has been a National League All-Star every season except 2018.

Closer Kenley Jansen was a mixed bag for 2019.  To show he saved 33 games with a 5-3 record.  Problematic was a 3.71 earned run average and WHIP of 1.06.  Those are numbers too high for a closer.  Jansen was a National League All-Star from 2016 through 2018.  And was Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year in 2016 and 2017.

Dodgers Open as Massive 2020 National League Chalk

First in the National League for payroll and a record of success make the Dodgers Betting on baseball chalk.  RF Cody Bellinger was the 2019 NL Most Valuable Player.  Bellinger hit 47 home runs with 121 runs and 115 runs batted in.  Owing to that are expectations over the top for him to carry Los Angeles.  Mookie Betts arrival from the Red Sox adds to the Dodger hype.
