The Diamondbacks have won three of their four games when scoring four or more runs.

The Dodgers are 15-3 in their last 18 road games, 21-7 in their last 28 games as a road favorite and 14-5 in their last 19 overall. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 home games, 1-4 in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The under is 5-0 in Dodgers last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Diamondbacks last 6 overall.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to start heating up, as we see one of those crazy runs every year and this is one of their more complete rosters. Urias was solid in his debut and was at his best on the road last season where he had a 1.86 ERA and .157 allowed batting average. Weaver was crushed in his season debut and you have to wonder where his confidence is. The Los Angeles Dodgers at this price with who is on the mound feels like a sweet bet.
