|Date & Time||Wednesday June 26, 2019, 3:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -156 / Arizona Diamondbacks +135 -- Over/Under: 10
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Wednesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 97 hits and 62 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 151 hits and 80 RBI. Tony Gonsolin will make his major league debut when he gets the ball tonight. Gonsolin was 19-11 with a 3.11 ERA and 296 strikeouts in his minor league career.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 99 hits and 51 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 166 hits and 102 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. This will be Clarke’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 44-16 in their last 60 during game 3 of a series, 38-14 in their last 52 games on grass and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The Diamondbacks are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 7-3 in their last 10 Wednesday games and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The over is 6-1 in Clarkes last 7 starts overall. The under is 7-2 in Dodgers last 9 road games.
Usually I shy away from pitchers making their major league debut, but the Los Angeles Dodgers offense is good enough to pick him up if things go bad. The Dodgers are also a hard team to bet against based on this run they've been on. Also, Clarke hasn't been great lately, allowing 15 earned runs in his last 16 innings and giving up a nine ERA and .314 allowed batting average in eight innings at home. The Dodgers are just one of those teams you trust regardless of the situation. I'll lay the reasonable price on a rookie pitcher.
