Dodgers vs. Giants, 9:07 p.m EDT

Corey Knebel vs. Logan Webb

Julio Urias was the original scheduled starting pitcher for the Dodgers, but manager Dave Roberts made a change to Corey Knebel. The thought is this will prevent the Giants from stacking their lineup full of right-handed hitters.

I have been on Logan Webb the last three months and there is no stopping now in this spot, Game 5 at home vs. the Dodgers. Webb is 6-0 in 73.1 innings with a 1.96 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 6.6 strikeouts per game at home. The Giants are 12-0 in Webb's home starts and have won all four of Webb's starts against the Dodgers. The last three in a row have gone under the total.

Thursday's Dodgers lineup (same exact lineup as Game 4) is just 8-for-49 against Webb. He allowed five hits and no walks while striking out 10 in 7.2 scoreless innings against the Dodgers in Game 1. He is also coming off five days rest instead of the usual four.

The average score in Webb's home starts is 5.0-2.4 runs per game. Ten of 13 have been to the under with an average total of 8.0 with an average moneyline of -130.

BET: Giants -115 for 1 RWBuck

BET: Dodgers under 3.5 runs (-125) for 0.5 RWBuck

BET: Webb over 5.5 strikeouts (+120) for 1 RWBuck
