The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Dodgers have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games.

The Diamondbacks are 17-35 in their last 52 road games and 5-1 in De La Rosas last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 37-14 in their last 51 games as a home favorite and 37-15 in their last 52 home games. The Diamondbacks are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-20 in the last 26 meetings overall.
It's only a matter of time before the Dodgers' bats wake up, and it might as well come against a pitcher who has allowed 11 earned runs in his last two games. Give me the runline to give my wager more value.
