The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Wednesday in MLB action at Chase Field.

The Dodgers offense found its groove heading into this series, but scored just one run in Tuesday’s loss and now one run in three of their six games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have now lost 16 of their last 20 games when scoring four or less runs.

Alex Wood gets the ball, and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and five strikeouts this season. Wood is 5-3 with a 3.06 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot while building on their solid 4-1 record. The Diamondbacks offense has produced 14 runs in this series and six or more runs in four of their five games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 10 of their last 13 regular season games when scoring more than one run. Nick Ahmed leads Arizona with eight hits and seven RBI while David Peralta and A.J. Pollock have combined for 13 hits and six RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he was 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA and eight strikeouts this season.

The Dodgers are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 19-7 in Woods last 26 starts. The Diamondbacks are 6-0 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 10-3 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series and 8-2 in Corbins last 10 starts. The Diamondbacks are 0-5 in Corbins last 5 starts vs. Dodgers, the Dodgers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
We're getting plus money with an Arizona Diamondbacks squad that's been great out of the gate, has an offense that's on fire and just beat Kershaw as decent sized underdogs. Yes, Wood has been great and was impressive in his debut. However, Arizona has a .278 batting average with nine homers in 115 at bats against him. There's tons of value with the Diamonbacks at home and the plus money with the quick turnaround.
