The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Diamondbacks have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 142 hits and 67 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed have combined for 231 hits and 148 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be Young’s second career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost four of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 129 hits and 88 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 211 hits and 125 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 4.37 ERA and 122 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 5-5 with a 4.54 ERA and 80 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 8-3 in their last 11 Saturday games, 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games, 20-9 in their last 29 during game 2 of a series and 7-3 in Maedas last 10 home starts. The Diamondbacks are 15-39 in the last 54 meetings in Los Angeles, 3-7 in the last 10 meetings and the Dodgers are 1-6 in Maedas last 7 starts vs. Diamondbacks. The under is 5-1 in Maedas last 6 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 overall.

Young has allowed 17 hits and nine runs in his last 29.2 innings, and he has a 1.93 ERA and .209 allowed batting average in 18.2 innings on the road. Maeda has allowed 24 hits and 19 earned runs in his last 27.1 innings, and he's allowing a 3.17 ERA and .181 batting average at home. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost four of the last seven games Made has pitched, and Young has been too solid as of late to just throw out such a sweet plus money price. While the Dodgers are incredible at home and they don't lose back-to-back games often, there's value with the Arizona Diamondbacks and this price.

Pick:
Arizona Diamondbacks +170
