L.A. Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Preview

The Dodgers are only 1 game over .500 on the road, which you think would be good for the D-Backs, but Arizona is 7 game under .500 at home this season (7-13).

In last night’s game the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 6-1.

This season the Dodgers have an O/U record of 19-19 and they have a run-line W/L record of 26-16 and the D-Backs have an O/U record of 21-20 and a run-line W/L record of 23-20.

The Dodgers have won 5 of their last 7 games against the D-Backs in Arizona.

Aaron Harang (3-2, 3.83 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers tonight and he is looking for his 3rd straight win and he was stellar in his last outing going 7 innings and not giving up any earned runs in a win over the Padres. Trevor Cahill (2-4, 4.01 ERA) goes for the D-Backs tonight and in his last outing he got a no decision facing the Rockies going 5 innings and giving up 4 earned runs.


The Dodgers’ offense has not skipped a beat even with early season MVP candidate Matt Kemp out, as in their 5-game winning streak they have outscored opponents 32-12.

Harang is only 3-6 lifetime against the D-Backs, but he has a solid ERA of 2.02 in 12 career starts against Arizona.

Cahill only has one career start against the Dodgers and that was way back in 2009 when he was with the Oakland A’s.

The Dodgers’ offense is playing well and ranks 8th in the Majors in runs scored while the D-Backs only rank 18th.

Cahill has to worry about Andre Ethier, who leads the NL in RBI, and even with Kemp out the other L.A. hitters are taking up the slack.

In some betting trends for this NL West match up the Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road underdog, 1-4 in Harang’s last 5 starts when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 road games.

The D-Backs are 3-13 in their last 16 home games, 0-5 in their last 5 games as a home favorite, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 home games.

Jason’s Pick: Not sure why the D-Backs are the favorite in this game and I would jump on the Dodgers, as they will win their 6th straight behind another strong outing from Harang.
