It’s a bit shocking to us to see how the Dodgers are actually the road favorites in this game by a relatively comfortable margin. The oddsmakers clearly don’t have all that much confidence in RHP Matt Cain. Granted, we know that Cain has been atrocious this season, posting an ERA of nearly 6.50, and he has allowed nine home runs in his last four starts combined. To put that in comparison, the righty allowed nine home runs in his entire 2011 season. That’s why RHP Hyun-Jin Ryu is the favorite in this one. Ryu has been remarkable over the course of the first six starts of his career, and he is unlucky to have a single loss to his credit. The righty has arguably been the best rookie in the league this year, and there is no doubt that he is going to be in the running on the Rookie of the Year voting this year. Here’s the issue that we have with Ryu: He has never faced the same team twice. We think that asking these two teams to be held under three runs apiece is going to be a difficult challenge. Go with the ‘over’ on Sunday Night Baseball.

Dodgers @ Giants Pick 5/5/13: Over 6.5
