Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin
Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. Jones launched a majestic 416-foot solo blast -- his second long-ball of the season -- off Dodgers' starter Kenta Maeda in the seventh inning. The 33-year-old veteran's resurgence has been one of the few positive developments for Arizona in this one-sided series so far. He's hitting .357 (5-for-14) with three extra-base hits through three games.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Cody Bellinger went 4-for-6 with a pair of homers and matched a career-high with six RBI in the Dodgers' 18-5 blowout victory over the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Bellinger punched a line-drive RBI single into right field off Diamondbacks’ starter Zack Godley in the fourth inning and also took him deep with a towering 398-foot solo blast in the fifth. He plated two more runs with a bases-loaded single off reliever Matt Koch in the sixth and capped off a truly memorable performance with a two-run homer off backup catcher John Ryan Murphy in the eighth. The 23-year-old slugger is hitting .467/.500/1.067 with three homers and seven RBI through three games. It's too early to draw any significant conclusions, but Bellinger is completely locked-in at the plate right now.
MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks are just 15-36 in their last 51 games at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers have won four of Walker Buehler’s last five home starts.
Luke Weaver was part of the trade that sent Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals back in December and while the youngster struggled a year ago for St. Louis, he was sharp this spring. He posted a 1.04 ERA and a 15-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in four starts. That’s the key with Weaver, who has good stuff but he excelled in the minors because of his excellent control. He’ll need it today in L.A. when he takes on a powerful Dodgers lineup that boasts plenty of power. That said, I like both Weaver and Walk Buehler to pitch well and for the offenses to be suppressed.
The Pick: Diamondbacks/Dodgers under 7.5
