Diamondbacks at LA Dodgers MLB Odds, Prediction & PickArizona / Los Angeles Live Stream: MLB Live MLB Odds: LA Dodgers -1.5 (+135) / -160
Why bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks?The Diamondbacks may be at the top of the division, but they are certainly not making things easy for themselves, going just 5-5 in their last 10 games. They have seen a decent lead at the top start to crumble during that run, with just a single game now separating first from third. Their road trip did not get off to a very good start, as they dropped 2 of 3 to the San Francisco Giants before heading to LA, where the pressure is sure to be even greater.Further compounding the issue is that the Rockies have a weekend series against the pretty awful Padres, which means any sort of slip up here could mean that Arizona suddenly find themselves down in 3rd in the division. The D-Backs have been good against LA this season, going 3-2 on the road and 8-4 overall. It will be Robbie Ray (3-2, 4.73 ERA) who gets the start here.
Why bet on the LA Dodgers?It has been a rollercoaster season for the LA Dodgers, who have struggled more than any of us expected them to. You can perhaps credit a World Series hangover as part of the problem for their early season struggles, but they have just not found a way to remain consistent over a long stretch of games. They may be turning that around at just the right time, though, as they come into this one having won 5 straight games.Before we all get too carried away, it should be noted that those wins came against the Padres and the Rangers, which are teams you would expect the talent-laden Dodgers to win easily enough. Still, it’s a momentum shift that could carry over into this series, which LA really needs to win to get back on top. Rich Hill (6-4, 3.50 ERA) will start for the Dodgers.
