  • Read below for the Diamondbacks vs Dodgers odds and betting prediction

The LA Dodgers (101-44, 49-18 home) have outperformed virtually every opponent they’ve faced in 2022, but they’ve really done a number on the Arizona Diamondbacks (68-78, 29-39 away). LA is 11-3 against its NL West division rival, and will look to continue their dominance over the D-Backs on Tuesday in a doubleheader.

Arizona vs Los Angeles Probable Pitchers

Los Angeles enters play as the top contender in the World Series odds. They’ve already wrapped up the division title, and are 9.5 games up on the Mets for the NL’s top seed.

If there’s a crack in the armor, it’s in the starting rotation, not because of talent but rather due to injury. Dodgers’ starters have been dropping like flies all season, which is why rookie Michael Grove is getting another start on Tuesday. The 25-year-old will make his second appearance against Arizona in the last week, after holding them to two runs and two hits over 5 innings last Wednesday.

The outing marked the second straight in which he’s allowed fewer than three runs, and he boasts an eight-to-two strikeout-to-walk rate over that stretch. He was a second-round selection by LA in 2018, and posted a 3.79 ERA and .122 WHIP across 17 minor league starts prior to his recall.

Arizona will counter with Zach Davies. He’s faced the Dodgers three times this season, and has started two of the three games that the D-Backs have won against LA.

His last outing was against the Dodgers six days ago, and he pitched very well. He held a watered down version of the Dodgers lineup to four hits and two runs over 5.1 innings.

Davies is 4-5 lifetime against LA in 13 starts, and has yielded a .260/.330/.422 slash line to current LA hitters over 173 at-bats.

Diamondbacks vs Dodgers Betting Trends

The aforementioned Davies’ start against the Dodgers last week was LA’s only loss in their past eight games. They sat out a handful of regulars for that contest after clinching the division the day before, then proceeded to sweep the Giants at San Francisco over the weekend.

LA sports a ridiculous 49-18 record at home this year, including 4-0 at Dodger Stadium versus Arizona. They lead MLB in scoring, OBP, slugging, and OPS, and have been tearing the cover off the ball lately. LA is averaging nearly six runs per game over the past 14 days, and feature three of the top-six NL MVP odds contenders (Freddie Freeman, Mookie Betts, and Trea Turner)

Arizona, on the other hand, limps into play having dropped three straight and nine of 12. They crossed the plate only four times in three weekend games versus San Diego, and have been shut out three times in the last eight days, twice by the Dodgers.

Diamondbacks vs Dodgers Pick

Arizona’s victory against LA last week was their first win in 11 games in the season series. Given their current form, and the recent play of the 2020 champs, we should expect the Dodgers dominance to resume.

Los Angeles has outscored the D-Backs by 39 runs this year, beating them by at least two runs on nine different occasions. Make that number 10 on Tuesday afternoon.

Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-122)
