Los Angeles vs San Diego Odds Pick

The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to grab a season-opening road win when they take on the Padres in San Diego at PETCO Park on Thursday as the MLB betting season kicks into gear.

For the Padres, Edinson Volquez gets the ball, charged with keeping the Dodgers hitters off the base paths. He'll face NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.

Both teams made headlines recently, with the Dodgers being purchased from the McCourt family. And San Diego manager Bud Black made headlines by being named the manager most likely to get fired first in 2012, as Bovada made him a 3/1 favorite for that dubious honor.

The Dodgers won 8 of the past 10 meetings last year and are -150 moneyline favorites at Bovada today.
