The Arizona Diamondbacks head to Los Angeles for the first of a three game set with the Dodgers. Wade Miley and Clayton Kershaw are the scheduled starters respectively. Check MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Diamondbacks lost two out of three to the Giants in their last series, including a 6-2 defeat yesterday. Rookie Tyler Skaggs surrendered five runs in five innings allowing San Francisco to come within 1.5 games of first place. Wade Miley gets the start tonight; he has won just one of his last four starts. His last start in St. Louis he gave up 11 hits and 3 earned runs, however did receive the victory after getting 10 runs of support from the offense. In his last two road starts Miley has given up 18 hits and 10 earned runs. As a team, Arizona has won four out of their last six on the road and five of their last ten overall.
Los Angeles lost 8-1 against Atlanta yesterday, extending their losing streak to two games. They are 9.5 games behind the Diamondbacks and currently stand in last place. Clayton Kershaw will try and reverse the fortune for the Dodgers tonight. In 13 starts this season he is 5-4 with a 1.93 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 93.1 innings. In his last start against the Padres he threw six innings giving up seven hits, three walks and gave up two earned runs. The Dodgers are 4-3 in their last seven home starts and five for their last ten overall. Hanley Ramirez most likely will not play, and is headed back to the disabled list after getting another MRI today.
I’m going with the Dodgers in this matchup considering Miley’s road record, and Kershaw being on the mound for Los Angeles so claim sportsbook promotion codes.
