Pick 3: LA Dodgers Moneyline (-192 DraftKings)

The Los Angeles Dodgers head into Oracle Park tonight heavily favored to take down the San Francisco Giants in the opening game of their three-game series. Here's why the Dodgers have a strong chance of securing a victory:

Offensive Juggernaut: The Dodgers boast the league's most potent offense, averaging over 5 runs per game. With hitters like Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, and Freddie Freeman leading the charge, the Giants' pitching staff could face an uphill battle.

Dominant on the Road:  The Dodgers have been impressive away from home this season, sporting a winning record (14-7).  They shouldn't be fazed by the Giants' home crowd.

Giants' Struggles:  San Francisco sits below .500 with a shaky pitching staff. While they can be dangerous at home, their inconsistencies make them a tough team to back against a juggernaut like the Dodgers.

Probable Pitcher's Edge:  While the official starting pitchers haven't been announced yet, the Dodgers have a deeper pitching staff.  Early indications suggest Yoshinobu Yamamoto could take the mound for L.A., and he's been untouchable on the road this season, not allowing a run in 17 innings.

However, baseball is full of surprises, and the Giants always get up for games against their rivals.  If their bats come alive and their pitching holds strong, they could pull off an upset.  Despite that, the Dodgers' offensive firepower and overall dominance make them the clear favorites to win the series opener.
