Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants MLB Friday Night Betting

Beckett and Dodgers Try to Gain Ground in NL West

Trailing the host Giants by 4.5 games, Josh Beckett takes the hill for the Dodgers in game one of this crucial series for both clubs. Los Angeles has lost two straight games but will rely on veteran Beckett’s arm to move them one game closer to the top of the NL West standings. The Dodgers rebuilt their lineup in the middle of the season, completing three major trades, two with the Phillies and one with the Red Sox. The team’s new ownership and the fans hope those trades mean the difference in 2012.

Lincecum and Giants Look to Expand Lead over Dodgers

Tim Lincecum has not pitched nearly as well in 2012 as he had during the first five years of his career. He has pitched better of late, going 5-4 since the All-Star break. The Giants will need his stellar arm if they wish to fend off the Dodgers for the NL West crown in 2012 and make a deep run in the playoffs.

Top online sportsbooks, much like the one at Sportsinteraction.com, favor the Dodgers over the Giants Friday September 7, 2012 at 10:15 PM ET. The moneyline is -105 for Josh Beckett and the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants. The over/under is set at 7, with the Dodgers being picked for over 7 runs.
