The Dodgers look to put the fight behind them when they travel to Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks in the first game of the series between the two teams. Get MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Dodgers (6-3) have had a good start to the season but took a huge hit on Thursday night when they took on the Padres in San Diego. The Dodgers won the game but lost when they learned that their pitcher, who is worth more than $140 million, is out with a broken collarbone. Zack Greinke broke his collarbone when Carlos Quentin rushed the mound and they collided after Greinke hit him with a pitch. After starting the season 1-2, the Dodgers have won five of their last six games and look like they could be a real contender this season.
The Diamondbacks (6-3) get to play their fourth game at home in a row after their three game series that they just played with the Pirates. The Diamondbacks won the last game of that series. The series with the Pirates was the only one all season that the D-Backs lost thus far. Ian Kennedy will get the start for the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Kennedy is 1-0 this season and 47-30 in his career as a starting pitcher.
The Dodgers are just 3-6 against the run-line this season and the Diamondbacks are 4-5 ATS.
I like Arizona in this game. The Dodgers are coming off this emotional event in the game against the Padres and I think the D-Backs will take game one at best sports books.
