The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to snap the San Francisco Giants five-game winning streak on Saturday with youngster Bobby Miller on the mound. 

Miller has gotten off to a great start in his MLB career, posting a 0.78 ERA through four starts. 

He takes on Giants lefty Alex Wood (1-1, 4.80 ERA) in this matchup. Wood is coming off arguably his worst start of the season, giving up six runs on eight hits against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

The Giants are now in third in the NL West with this recent winning streak, but can they be the first team to really get to Miller? 

Here are the latest odds and my best bet:

Giants vs. Dodgers prediction and pick

The Dodgers have been great against left-handed pitching this season, ranking fourth in MLB in OPS. 

That’s going to spell trouble for Wood, who has seen his ERA skyrocket over his last three starts. He’s gone from a 2.87 ERA to 4.80 with three poor showings. 

There’s no way that I can fade Miller in this spot against Wood. 

Miller has allowed one or fewer runs in each of his four starts, and he’s given up just four hits in 12.0 innings of work this month. 

The Dodgers righty is looking like a future star, and he could be the stopper to San Fran’s winning streak. 

I’ll take the Dodgers on the moneyline in this game.
