The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Tuesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. The Diamondbacks need a win after losing 12 of their last 15 games. The Dodgers look for a win after winning six of their last eight games.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have lost eight of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Pavin Smith leads the Diamondbacks with 123 hits and 45 RBI while David Peralta and Josh Rojas have combined for 229 hits and 97 RBI. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.24 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 1-2 with a 7.25 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Dodgers have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Justin Turner leads the Dodgers with 131 hits and 80 RBI while Chris Taylor and Max Muncy have combined for 235 hits and 155 RBI. Tony Gonsolin gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.79 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Gonsolin is 0-2 with a 4.28 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 10-45 in their last 55 road games and 32-83 in their last 115 overall. The Dodgers are 42-15 in their last 57 Tuesday games and 74-30 in their last 104 home games. The over is 4-0 in Diamondbacks last 4 overall. The under is 18-5-3 in Dodgers last 26 overall. The Diamondbacks are 17-50 in the last 67 meetings in Los Angeles.
Weaver has been solid this season, but he doesn’t get much run support and the Diamondbacks have actually been shutout in two of his last five starts. Gonsolin has allowed 19 hits and eight runs in his last 25.2 innings, and he has a 2.66 ERA and .208 allowed batting average at home. The Dodgers also need to keep winning to keep themselves in the NL West race. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value.
