Robbie Ray Has Been Absolutely Dealing on the Road

Improving their league-best home record to 35-11 last night, the Dodgers will go for the sweep of the D-backs on Thursday evening when they call upon the suddenly dealing Rich Hill (5-4, 4.00 ERA) to square off with Robbie Ray (8-4, 3.06 ERA). LA opened the game as the moneyline fave and given the trends the Dodgers are setting at home, that’s completely fair.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 14-1 SU and 10-5 on the runline in their last 15 games at home.
  • The Diamondbacks are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Dodgers.
  • The Dodgers are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games against left-handed starting pitchers.

Playing in the second most one-run games this season, the Diamondbacks have been busting the Dodgers’ runline this series and are liable to do the same tonight. Until his last three starts, Robbie Ray had been one of the biggest surprises of 2017 and he should give the Snakes a chance to salvage a win tonight as decent sized dogs.

The lefty has struck out 128 batters in exactly 100 innings of work this year and he’s been much better away from Chase Field with an ERA of 1.32 in his seven road starts.

Hill, who’s been much better of late, lasted just three innings in his last start against the D-backs and his trip to the bump tonight will mark the second time he’s faced the Snakes this decade. The 37-year-old has been a volatile option for the Dodgers so the road team could actually be the play here.
