Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
These are two teams that are going in different directions. I look for the Dodgers to take care of business in this one.
The Dodgers are the better team and they will need to show that on Saturday. I have zero confidence backing the Diamondbacks in this one.
Walker Buehler is the better pitcher and I expect him to pitch a good one on Saturday. Los Angeles should be able to hit around Caleb Smith enough to get a win.
The moneyline is too expensive for me to lay here, so I will go with the Dodgers on the run line.
