Dodgers are 7-19 last 26 vs. NL West, 1-5 in Kershaw's last 6 starts vs. NL West and 5-16 last 21 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game.
Arizona (35-28, 18-14 road, 27-34 O/U) is coming off losing two of three at home to San Francisco. The Dodgers lost two straight against Atlanta to even their four-game series. Arizona send Wade Miley (4-5, 4.92) to the mount against another lefty in Clayton Kershaw (5-4, 1.93 ERA). While Kershaw's overall numbers are great, he has allowed 10 runs in his last three starts including four at home against St. Louis on May 26. Miley has pitched well in his last three starts against the Dodgers, allowing just six earned runs in 22 1/3 innings. On May 8, he beat the Dodgers, 3-2, allowing just 2 runs in 7 2/3 innings. He owns a 3-1 mark with a 3.19 ERA in six lifetime meetings vs. Dodgers. Despite adding phenom Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers are still last in the National League West. There is great value in this line with the way Miley has pitched against the Dodgers. Arizona visits Dodger Stadium on Monday to take on the LA Dodgers at 10:10pmET.
