Pick 6: LA Dodgers Moneyline (-170 DraftKings)

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to build on their momentum and claim victory in game 2 of their three-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park. Here's why the Dodgers are in a strong position to bolster the series lead:

Capitalizing on Yesterday's Win: The Dodgers' offense exploded in game 1, with key hits from Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, and Freddie Freeman. This offensive momentum can be a major advantage as they look to put pressure on the Giants early.

Starting Pitching Advantage: While the official starters haven't been confirmed, the Dodgers possess a deeper pitching staff.  Early reports suggest Gavin Stone might get the nod. While less experienced, Stone has a chance to prove himself on a big stage, and the Dodgers' bullpen is reliable if needed.

Giants' Offense Stalled: The Giants' bats were relatively quiet in game 1, and their inconsistent offense could struggle again against another strong Dodgers pitcher.

Short Rest for Giants' Bullpen:  The Giants' bullpen had to work extra innings in their previous series, and potentially relying on them again after a close game 1 could be a disadvantage.

Road Warriors Continue: The Dodgers have thrived on the road this season, and the familiar atmosphere of a rivalry game shouldn't faze them.

Of course, the Giants shouldn't be underestimated, especially at home. Their passionate fanbase can create a challenging environment. But with their offensive firepower and potential pitching edge, the Dodgers are the favorites to secure a series win. Look for a close game with the Dodgers pulling ahead late thanks to their deep bullpen and offensive consistency.
