Pitchers’ Duel in the Desert Highlights Wednesday MLB Slate

The Arizona Diamondbacks kicked off their eight-game homestand with a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and will look to once again knock off the league’s best team when the squads do battle on Wednesday. Sportsbooks opened the D-backs as +110 home dogs with a total of 8.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 8-0 SU in their last eight games at home with Zack Greinke as the starting pitcher.
  • The Dodgers are 5-0 SU in their last five games on the road with Alex Wood as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Dodgers’ last 10 games after losing as a favorite.

Alex Wood and Zack Greinke will get the start for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, respectively. Wood (13-1, 2.33 ERA) has done well since suffering his first loss of the season, rattling off consecutive wins in his last two outings. The hurler owns a 4-3 record with a 3.06 ERA in 11 career games against Arizona.

Greinke (13-4, 3.10) extended his unbeaten stretch to seven games on Thursday when he escaped Chicago with a no-decision after allowing six runs and nine hits to the Cubs. The 33-year-old, who won 51 games for the Dodgers from 2013 to 2015, has gone 5-0 since suffering his last setback on June 20.

UNDER bettors love seeing these teams get together, as the UNDER is 4-1 in the last five between the Dodgers and D-backs.
