Pro Baseball Preview: Odds, Trends for SF-LAD and Other Key Matchups

Bet baseball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

Whether it’s the two teams with the best records in baseball squaring off, a top AL MVP candidate on the mound or a division leader looking to get back on track in Cincinnati, there are plenty of intriguing MLB matchups on tonight’s 13-game slate.

The Giants have lost their last two games, yet they still own MLB’s best record at 58-34. Now San Francisco heads to Los Angeles to play the rival Dodgers, who sit one game behind in the NL West standings at 58-36.

The first showdown of this four-game series starts tonight, with Kevin Gausman getting the nod for the road team and Tony Gonsolin starting for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers opened as -117 moneyline favorites at William Hill, and have since gone up to -135. Meanwhile, the Giants are listed at +125 from +107 and the total has been set at 8.

The home team is getting 61% of the total number of tickets among all moneyline wagers in this one, including a Nevada bettor putting down $182,000 on Dodgers -117 for a total potential payout of $337,555.60.

Shohei Ohtani makes his first start on the mound post-All-Star break, as the Angels superstar is facing the Athletics and lefty Cole Irvin. Oakland actually was first posted as a +105 home underdog. That line has flipped, though, and the Athletics are now at -108 over the Angels (-102).

Even with Ohtani as the starting pitcher, many William Hill bettors are siding with Oakland. The Athletics have captured 54% of the total number of tickets and 83% of the total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets against the Angels.

The NL East-leading Mets pulled off a dramatic comeback victory on Sunday to avoid a three-game road sweep and fourth straight loss to the Pirates. After trailing 6-0 in the first inning, New York’s moneyline was as high as 12/1 live at William Hill.

Now after facing the last-place team in the NL Central, the Mets head to Cincinnati to face the second-place squad. The Mets and Jerad Eickhoff were originally +117, but are now +103 underdogs to the Reds (-113) and Vladimir Gutierrez.

The majority of William Hill bettors are on the Reds in terms of total number of tickets, as Cincinnati has racked up 64% in that category. Yet, a Nevada bettor is strongly backing the underdog, as a $165,000 wager came in on Mets +108 for a total potential payout of $343,200.
