Dodgers’ Skid is Making Contrarians Rich

A 12-game winning streak has helped the Diamondbacks pull within 11.5 games of the Dodgers in the NL West after the Blue Crew had been up by as many as 21. It’s improbable that Torey Lovullo’s club keeps up its current trajectory but if it does and Dave Roberts’ keeps slipping, the Snakes have an outside shot at catching the Dodgers before the end of the regular season with 23 games still left to play.

SHARK BITES
  • The Diamondbacks are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against the Dodgers.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Diamondbacks’ last 6 games against the Dodgers.
  • Kenta Maeda has a 9.53 ERA in 4 starts against the Diamondbacks this season.

Calling upon Kenta Maeda has been part of the winning formula for the Dodgers in home games as they’ve taken nine in a row at Chavez Ravine with him as their starter but his numbers against the D-backs are disconcerting, to say the least. When Maeda last faced the Snakes a week ago, he was lit up for seven earned runs and he lasted only three innings.

Arizona will counter with Taijuan Walker (8-7, 3.42 ERA). He’ll take a 3.02 ERA in nine starts made after the all-star break and a personal two-game winning streak into the contest.

All the pieces are in place for the D-backs to extend their streak tonight and they’re being offered in the range of +150 on the moneyline.
