Saturdays game between the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks will be the third game of a four game series.
The Dodgers look to have a postseason spot with a four game lead as of Friday morning over the San Francisco Giants.
Los Angeles looks to have things headed in the right direction for the playoffs with the return of their Ace, Clayton Kershaw, and a lineup that has been playing great for the majority of the season.
Diamondbacks pitcher Shelby Miller has gone ahead and decided to throw his name in the mix along with Chris Archer and James Shields for this years MLB most disappointing pitcher of the year.
Shelby currently has an ERA over 7 after beginning the season with a career best ERA in the mid 3’s. He has only been able to come away with two wins so far this year out of 17 starts.
He has lost in five of his last trips to the mound for Arizona. During the six game stretch he has allowed 30 runs, a total that is high compared to any starter in the league.
The one thing Miller has going for him at this point is his age. At only 25 years of age, he still has plenty of opportunity to get his career back on track.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers will have Bud Norris on the hill Saturday in Arizona.
The start will give him an opportunity to win his 7th game of the season. He is unlikely to start in the postseason due to his low production the second half of the season.
He hasn’t been able to record a win and has given up 16 runs throughout his last five starts. While there has only been one loss, the four no decisions say more about the pitching of Norris than the bats of the Dodgers lineup.
Los Angeles’ work in the batter’s box is the only thing that provided the four four no decisions and one loss instead of five losses.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- 4-0 Over during the last 4 games Norris has started on grass.
- 4-1 Over in the last 5 home starts for Miller
- 4-1 Over in the last 5 starts for Norris against a team with a losing record
- 34-16-2 Over in the last 52 games when Arizona has played a team with a losing record on the road
Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
I will not be surprised if this game is over the total by the 7th or 8th inning due to the starting pitchers.
I’ll be shocked if either Norris or Miller make it out of the 6th inning and don’t expect the relievers of either team to do much to keep one another in check.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles ML and game total over 10.5
Los Angeles and Arizona should both have a field day in the batter’s box Saturday night.
The game could is a real toss up but I think the Dodgers will swing the bats hard enough to secure the lead they take into the game over the Giants.
That and the fact that Shelby Miller will be on the mound is a huge turn off. Saturday might jst be the game he takes away the prize for worst pitcher in the Majors this season.
