Money Line: -103 Arizona
The Diamondbacks should be a much heavier favorite in their home opener against the San Francisco Giants. There's no question that Tim Lincecum is still one of the better starters in the game, but he is getting way too much respect here.
Ian Kennedy is getting no love despite a Cy Young-worthy season last year. He was a 20-plus game winner despite pitching in one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the league. This guy is the real deal, and I like his chances to take down Lincecum.
Kennedy is 4-2 with a 1.91 ERA and 0.948 WHIP in 10 career starts against San Francisco. Lincecum has given up 10 earned runs in 10 innings in his last two starts against Arizona for a 9.00 ERA. Take the Diamondbacks.
