Diamondbacks plus $1.57 at Dodgers

The Dodgers are on pace to win 108 games. But every team hits a rough patch during the long baseball season. That’s happening with the Dodgers right now. They’ve lost 10 of their past 11 games, including the last five.

Consequently, Arizona is sizzling winning 12 in a row.

The pitching matchup is fairly even here so I find great value at this price taking the underdog Diamondbacks.

Arizona starter Taijuan Walker is 2-0 with a 0.54 ERA during his last three starts. He has 17 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings during this span. Walker will be extra pumped being from Southern California. Walker has a 2.71 ERA on the road this year.

Dodgers starter Kent Maeda is off his worst start. Maeda surrendered seven runs on eight hits in three innings. That came against the Diamondbacks six days ago at Arizona in an 8-1 loss. This will be the fifth time already the Diamondbacks face Maeda this season. He is 0-2 versus Arizona with a 9.53 ERA.

The Diamondbacks should get superstar Paul Goldschmidt back in their lineup today while Dodgers star Corey Seager remains doubtful with an elbow injury.
