Arizona Diamondbacks vs. L.A. Dodgers Preview
The Dodgers had a tough last series facing the Braves and after winning the first 2 games of the series they lost they last 2. They are in the basement of the NL West 7.5 games back of the Diamondbacks. Arizona has lost 2 in a row and they are 5-5 in their last 10 games. MLB lines have the Dodgers as big home favorites in this game with a total of 6 runs.
In their last games the Dodgers lost to the Atlanta Braves 8-1 and the Diamondbacks lost to the San Francisco Giants 6-2.
On the season the Diamondbacks have an Over/Under record of 27-34 and a run-line W/L record of 32-31 and the Dodgers have an Over/Under record of 32-27 and a run-line W/L record of 29-33.
This season the Dodgers are 18-18 at home and the Indians are 18-14 on the road.
The D-Backs have won 9 of their last 11 games against the Dodgers in L.A. and 16 of their last 21 facing them overall.
Dodgers’ rookie sensation Yasiel Puig is 13 /28 with 4 homers and 10 RBI since his debut last Monday. His offense is sorely needed, as the Dodgers only rank 27th in the Majors in runs scored.
Wade Miley (4-5 4.92 ERA) goes for the Diamondbacks tonight and he had a decent last start giving up 3 earned runs in 6 innings in a win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
One of the reasons the Dodgers are such big favorites is that Clayton Kershaw (4-5 1.93 ERA) is on the hill. In his last start he only gave up 2 earned runs in 6 innings, but still took a loss facing the San Diego Padres.
Miley is 1-4 with a 7.94 ERA in his last 5 starts.
Kershaw ranks 2nd in the NL in ERA, but he has not gotten much run support all season and he does not have a win in his last 3 starts.
The Dodgers have lost 4 straight games to the Diamondbacks.
In some betting trends for this NL West match up the Diamondbacks are 7-2 in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a losing record, 1-4 in Miley’s last 5 starts, and they have an Over record of 6-0 in their last 6 road games.
The Dodgers are 6-17 in their last 23 vs. a team with a winning record, 41-20 in Kershaw’s last 61 starts, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record.
Jason’s Pick: The Dodgers are 0-5 in their last 5 games facing the D-Backs with Kershaw on the hill, but they will come up with some offense tonight and Kershaw and the Dodgers will get a win.
