Dodgers are in Rare Territory vs the D-backs

The Los Angeles Dodgers own the best record in the majors but are on the verge of losing their first series in over two months if they suffer a loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks today. Sportsbooks opened the D-backs as +150 home underdogs with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 7-1 SU and ATS in their last eight games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Diamondbacks’ last nine games as underdog.
  • The Dodgers are 9-0 SU in their last nine games when closing out a series.

Yu Darvish and Anthony Banda are slated to get the start for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, respectively. Darvish (7-9, 3.81 ERA) had a fantastic debut for L.A. on Friday, allowing three hits and striking out 10 over seven scoreless innings in a triumph over the Mets in the Big Apple. The native of Japan has made two career starts against Arizona, going 1-0 while allowing four runs and recording 28 strikeouts over 14 innings.

Banda (1-1, 3.86) is coming off a win over San Francisco on Friday where he gave up one run and three hits over six innings in his second MLB start. The Texan struggled with his control, however, as he issued four walks while also hitting a batter.

The Diamondbacks and Dodgers have a penchant of playing low-scoring affairs. In the previous six clashes between the teams, the UNDER is 5-1.
