It’s opening day! There are alot of tempting plays, big favorites and big underdogs. We are going to ease in with two small plays.
Here are my picks for MLB Opening Day March 29, 2018
San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers
Projected Starters: Giants: Ty Blach vs Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw 7:05pm EST
My pick: Under (+7.0) Two Units
The Giants projected starter Ty Blanch made three total starts against the Dodgers last season overall. The Giants were 1-2 in those three games. Ty Blach started against the Dodgers with all three games he started ending in a 2-1 score, including a Dodgers 2-1 win in a Kerhsaw vs Blanch match-up on April 25, 2017.
At Dodger stadium Ty Blanch allowed two earned runs in ten innings against the Dodgers last season on the road in Dodger stadium.
The Dodgers are a big favorite here and are 22-3 overall when they are home favorites of -250 to -330 over the last three years.
Kershaw was 4-1 with a 1.59 last season against the Giants.
In his career Kershaw is 22-9 when starting against San Fransico with an ERA of 1.58.
The Under is 27-11 in the those starts all time for Kershaw against the Giants.
