|Date & Time||Tuesday June 4, 2019, 9:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -215 / Arizona Diamondbacks +195 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Tuesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win to build on their six-game winning streak. The Dodgers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 17 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 79 hits and 52 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 114 hits and 61 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 1.48 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-3 with a 3.59 ERA and 67 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won seven of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 69 hits and 48 RBI while Ketel Marte and Adam Jones have combined for 129 hits and 81 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 5.19 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Clarke’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 8-3 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series and 5-0 in Ryu's last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 40-18 in their last 58 Tuesday games, 2-6 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings in Arizona and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings. The under is 18-7-3 in Diamondbacks last 28 Tuesday games. The under is 8-3 in Ryu's last 11 road starts.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are piling up the victories at an impressive clip, and they're now throwing Ryu on the mound, a pitcher who allowed 28 hits and three runs in 45.2 innings in the month of May. Ryu has allowed just 12 runs in 73 innings this season while walking just five. It's just silly. Clarke is a young pitcher with just 17.1 career innings under his belt, and he's given up 10 runs in his last 14.1 innings. Betting against the Dodgers in their current form doesn't make much sense and betting against Ryu is plain stupid with the way he's pitching. Give me the Dodgers and the RL to increase the value of the bet.
