The Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Arizona Diamondbacks again tonight. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Diamondbacks are the defending division champions and are still technically alive in the division race but will need an epic come back to pull off a playoff berth. They did however win 4-3 in 11 innings over the Dodgers on Friday and they now have won three games in a row. Diamondbacks totaled nine hits in all in route to the win and tonight will look to rookie lefthander Tyler Skaggs to get another win. In his two starts thus far this season Skaggs has pitched well but has allowed seven walks in 12 innings.
The Dodgers are a completely different team than they were at the beginning of the year both literally and figuratively. They were on top of the National League West for several weeks, but have fallen off as of late. The offense has been struggling greatly and they gave the pitching staff no run support once again on Friday. Tonight Los Angeles will give the ball to Josh Beckett who will make his second start since coming over from the Red Sox.
Who knows what we will see from Arizona’s rookie pitcher, but we can say the same thing about Josh Beckett. We will take the team that is playing better right now, Arizona as a moneyline underdog with sportsbook betting.
