The San Francisco Giants never lay down against their rival Dodgers, but they’ve looked rough in the second half of the season, and that includes last night with their ace on the mound. We’re also getting a reasonable price with Tyler Anderson on the mound, a pitcher who has allowed 22 hits and 4 earned runs in his last 32.1 innings. You don’t get these chances often with a Dodgers team that’s priced in the -200 range a lot. Give me the Dodgers.
