The Dodgers have now won four of their past five meetings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Arizona is playing bad baseball right now as the club has dropped three straight and eight of their past nine games. The run production has struggled as Arizona has scored two or less runs in four of their past six games. Wade Miley will take the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. After some good appearances to start the 2012 campaign the league may have caught up to this southpaw pitcher as he has allowed seven earned runs and 17 hits in four walks in 11 2/3rds innings of work. That is nearly two base runners per inning which is extremely high and dangerous against a pretty good LA Dodgers lineup even without Matt Kemp in the lineup. The Diamondbacks lineup has struggled hitting just .238 over their past seven games and pushing across an average of below 3 runs per game. The Arizona bullpen has not been reliable with an ERA of nearly 4 runs on the season.
The LA Dodgers are on fire. They are averaging 5 ½ runs per game and allowing just 2 runs in their past seven games. There is line value here as Matt Kemp will not be in the lineup so you get better odds with LA. Kemp is a good bat but was struggling as LA was producing these great offensive numbers the past week. LA is good around Kemp and should be OK in this series against an anemic Diamondbacks offense. Chad Billingsley gets the start for LA and he is been very good pitching at Dodgers Stadium in the 2012 campaign. In three home starts Billingsley is 1-0 with an ERA of just 2.12 in 17 innings of work. Let’s back the hot team against the cold one tonight but before wagering read a sports book review.
