Dodgers -175 vs Giants (8)

Opening game at Dodger Stadium is fittingly against the archrival Giants. Los Angeles is off to a 4-2 start on its trips to San Diego and Arizona. San Francisco is 2-4 and sends Randy Johnson to the hill. The 6-foot-10 lefty is five victories away from 300 in his career and has never lost at Dodger Stadium (7-0, 2.04 ERA).

Chad Billingsley has been equally effective against San Francisco, posted a 2.08 ERA in four starts last season. The hoopla of Manny Ramirez facing the Big Unit should pack the house. The ball may be a little tough to pick up in this early start time so runs could again be at a premium facing two pitchers with past success. UNDER.
