See the MLB Odds on the NL game tonight.
Unfortunately for the Dodgers their offense has been on vacation or not producing much since the All-Star break and is one of the reasons they have been so lousy as of late. In the last 51 games they have had 687 at bats with 150 hits and 146 strikeouts. Pretty dismal and a big reason they are 20-31 since the break. But tonight it seems that the Dodgers have the upper hand with Billingsley hurling as he has been very good on the mound as of late.

On the Padres side they are not comfortable with their present standings after having such a strong lead for most of this 2010 season as now they are struggling to stay in first place and/or make the playoffs. Although during their losing streak the pitching was decent but at present are required to use pitchers that do not have the best records as tonight they hope the rookie will confuse the Dodgers as he is unfamiliar to most teams.
Looks as the sbg sportsbook Odds makers have the Dodgers favored at -1 ½ (+155) with Billingsley pitching and the Padres the Dogs at + 1 ½ (-175) with the OV 6 ½ (-125) and the UN 9 ½ (+105) and the Dodgers are -106 and the Padres are -104 on the Money Line.
