Grove will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Dodgers.

Davies allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four batters over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday. He has a 4-5 record with an ERA of 3.16 and 58 strikeouts in 13 appearances against the Dodgers in his career.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Arizona are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games against LA Dodgers.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Arizona's last 6 games on the road.

Arizona are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of LA Dodgers' last 7 games against Arizona.

LA Dodgers are 16-3 SU in their last 19 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Dodgers keep winnings games dominating the Dbacks as they have beat them 10 straight times at home. Michael Grove will get the ball who was good in his last start vs Dbacks the last week holding them to 2 runs across 5 innings pitched. Zach Davies will face the Dodgers who was also good in his last start as eh allowed 2 runs in 5.1 innings in the 5-3 win over the Dodgers. Davies is capable of keeping this game close again so I think the play with the better value is the Dbacks to cover the run line.

PICK: Diamondbacks +1.5 (+100)
