The Arizona Diamondbacks were a sexy pick to perhaps shake things up in the NL West, but after week one the Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves behind the eight ball at 2-5.
It’s still very early, but what has to be discouraging for the Arizona Diamondbacks is the fact that their 206 million dollar man in Zack Greinke has contributed to two of those losses where he has gotten rocked badly.
The Diamondbacks will look to turn things around as they go on a long road trip starting with a three game set in Los Angeles. Offense hasn’t been a problem as they’re scoring well over 4 runs a game and rank 7th in the Majors in home runs.
Their pitching has held them back as they rank near the bottom in all the major categories including ERA. Patrick Corbin will look to get things started for the pitching staff and have a quality start.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers could do no wrong as they played a perfect three game set to open the season versus the San Diego Padres where they defeated the Padres by a total of 25-0.
The Dodgers carried that over when the played the San Francisco Giants for the first five innings where they were up 4-0 going into the bottom of the fifth. From then on the Giants hammered the Dodgers to win that game and win the series three games to four.
The Dodgers sort of epitomize the idea that sometime stats are empty and don’t have much meaning. When you look at what the Dodgers have done statistically you would think that they are undefeated, but they aren’t. They are just one game above .500.
When the Dodgers win, they win big and pad the stats. Great for fantasy, but not much substance behind the numbers.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Kenta Maeda is a very impressive pitcher and he will be in the running for Rookie of the Year. I would anticipate him having a strong first half, but perhaps in the second half he struggles as the long 162 game season may start wearing him down. This is only his second start, so don’t be afraid of that happening in this game. I say he pitches well and the Dodgers their home opener to get back on track.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:
I don’t really have a free pick in this game. As you see on the bottom, I’ve got the Dodgers winning this game 5-3. That’s probably right around where the over/under total will be and I would expect the Dodgers to be sizable favorites, so there isn’t much value to be had. If the Dodgers are -125 favorites or lower then by all means take them, but I wouldn’t anticipate that happening.
