Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers come into this series playing good baseball as of late.
Despite their good play, the Giants are still 2.5 games ahead of them in the National League West.
Los Angeles just won two out of three against the Phillies.
In that series, their pitching was very impressive as they only allowed 6 runs in total.
Walker Buehler is having another impressive year. He has a 6-0 record with a 2.38 ERA. To me, he has been the Dodgers’ most consistent starting pitcher the whole year. He will look to extend his streak without a loss to 23 against Arizona.
Their pitching has been very impressive this year with an ERA of 3.20 which puts them third in baseball. It is not surprising given they have pitchers such as Buehler, Trevor Bauer, Clayton Kershaw, and Julio Urias. Not to mention, their bullpen is loaded as well.
Their offense is second best in baseball scoring 5.18 runs per game.
Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, and Max Muncy have been battling injuries throughout the year. This has not stopped them from scoring lots of runs.
The Dodgers have hit 86 home runs which is 10th best across the league.
Unlike the Dodgers, things could not be going worse for this Diamondbacks team.
They have a record of 20-50 which puts them in last place in the National League West. The Giants are 24.5 games ahead of the D-Backs.
They just got swept in four games against the Giants in San Francisco. They have now lost 23 consecutive games on the road.
Matt Peacock has not been in the rotation long, but has already seen his fair share of struggles. In three starts in June, he has 9 earned runs in 11.1 innings.
Their pitching has been terrible the whole year. They rank dead last in baseball with an ERA of 5.37.
Offense has been a little better for them as they are scoring 4.26 runs per game which is 17th in MLB.
Arizona is down near the bottom of the league in home runs with only 66 hit.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
These are two teams that are going in opposite directions. The Dodgers are one of the best teams in baseball while the Diamondbacks are the worst.
I have close to zero confidence betting the Diamondbacks given how much they lose.
Walker Buehler is clearly the better starting pitcher which gives the Dodgers an advantage right away. The Dodgers’ offense is also way more powerful than the Diamondbacks. It is no surprise that Los Angeles is such a heavy favorite on the Road.
I do not want to lay the high price of -172, so I will take the over of 8 runs in this game. I think this has a chance to be a high scoring game given how bad Peacock has been and how good the LA hitters are.
