|Date & Time||Tuesday June 25, 2019, 9:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers / Arizona Diamondbacks -- Over/Under:
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Tuesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last seven games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 97 hits and 62 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 150 hits and 79 RBI. Ross Stripling gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.08 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 1-4 with a 3.78 ERA and 41 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 97 hits and 51 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 164 hits and 100 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 5-4 with a 3.87 ERA and 115 strikeouts this season. Ray is 7-4 with a 2.89 ERA and 139 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 6-2 in their last 8 Tuesday games and 39-14 in their last 53 overall. The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series, 0-7 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 1-4 in Rays last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the Diamondbacks are 5-2 in Rays last 7 home starts vs. Dodgers. The over is 31-13-1 in Rays last 45 home starts. The over is 4-1-1 in Dodgers last 6 overall.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost back-to-back games just twice since April 25. Ray has been a solid pitcher for the Diamondbacks this season, especially at home where he has a 3.66 ERA and a .217 allowed batting average through 32 innings. The difference for me here is the consistency the Dodgers have played with all season as a team. While the prices ar sometimes steep, it's hard to make a profit betting against the Dodgers these days, and they're currently third in all of baseball in terms of money made this season.
