Dodgers on a five-game win streak
Los Angeles is riding a five-game win streak following a sweep of the Phillies at home this past weekend. The Dodgers are 41-19 on the season, 16-12 on the road and 31-26 with the over. Los Angeles has Walker Buehler on the mound today. He is 5-1 on the season with a 4.03 ERA.
The Dodgers are very strong on offense and defense. Los Angeles is putting up 5.43 runs per game while hitting .266 at the plate. Defensively, the Dodgers have a 3.53 team ERA and a 1.10 team WHIP. Cody Bellinger is leading the team with 20 home runs, 13 doubles and 52 RBI while Joc Pederson has 18 home runs and 33 RBI.
Diamondbacks trying to get on track
Arizona was on a five-game losing streak last week, but the Diamondbacks have won their last two games after beating the Mets in back-to-back games this weekend. Arizona is 30-30 on the season, 13-14 at home and 29-28 with the over. The Diamondbacks have Robbie Ray taking the mound today. He is 4-2 on the season with a 3.59 ERA.
The Diamondbacks are putting up 5.27 runs per game on offense this season while hitting .262 at the plate. Defensively, Arizona has a 4.18 team ERA with a 1.33 team WHIP. Eduardo Escobar is leading the team with 13 doubles, 15 home runs and 48 RBI while Ketel Marte is adding 12 doubles, 14 home runs and 43 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers have won five of their last six road games and 41 of their last 58 series openers.
The Diamondbacks have won five straight series openers when Ray starts and 5-2 in his last seven overall starts.
Buehler is coming off one of his worst outings of the season, but he has been pretty competitive on the mound this year. Ray hasn’t been getting deep into games and is giving up multiple runs lately. I don’t think he is likely to perform very well in an outing against this Dodgers lineup. L.A. can hit, they have good starting pitching and a strong bullpen. I just don’t see Ray getting the job done against this team today.
