Los Angeles’ Elite Pitching Has Stymied Opponents

The Dodgers picked up a 10-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Their outstanding offense was on full display as Cody Bellinger led the way with two home runs and four RBIs.

But for as good as Los Angeles is on offense, its pitching has been even better. The Dodgers have allowed four runs or less in each of their last 12 games, recording a 10-2 record over that stretch while giving up only 1.92 runs per game. This group is making it difficult for opponents to find a path to victory on any given night.

Arizona Has Been Limited By Struggles At The Plate

The Diamondbacks didn’t have much success against Tylor Megill and the New York Mets bullpen on Sunday in a 6-2 loss at home. Arizona went 3-1 in its four previous games, averaging 6.25 runs, but Sunday’s loss was far more indicative of the season overall.

Arizona ranks 28th in the majors in runs scored, averaging 3.06 runs per game. The team has pitched well with an ERA of 3.36, a nice improvement thus far over last season’s 5.11 team ERA. Bettors taking Arizona as their Dodgers vs Diamondbacks prediction will be hoping Merrill Kelly doesn’t need much run support on Monday.

Dodgers vs Diamondbacks Pick & Insights

Dodgers: Keys To Victory

Walker Buehler is due for a big game, and this could be the time for it against a division rival he has historically dominated. And if Buehler only delivers another average start, this offense still makes Los Angeles a solid Dodgers vs Diamondbacks prediction.

Diamondbacks: Keys To Victory

It’s hard to imagine this Diamondbacks offense being the one to break through against the Dodgers pitching staff and bullpen. All eyes will be on Merrill Kelly to continue his red-hot start to the 2022 season to make Arizona a successful Dodgers vs Diamondbacks pick.
