The current status

Arizona DiamondbacksDiamondbacks going into this match with a very unimpressive form

The Diamondbacks have remained among the bottom five MLB teams for a very long time, and now they’ve another opportunity to reclaim themselves. They have managed to win just two of their last five fixtures, and they’ll be looking to better their record.

Of the three games that they have lost, they have lost with a margin of more than two runs. The same applies to the two wins - they’ve won with a 2+ run margin. The Diamondbacks have just managed to win 32 out of 103 games that they’ve played this season. They will go into this clash as the underdogs.

LA DodgersDodgers have all eyes on the title

The Dodger’s fans will be pleased with what they’ve been seeing from their team this season. Although their most recent form tells a different story in terms of consistency, they’ll remain one of the teams to beat this season.

They have 62 wins in 104 matches. They have won three of their five most recent games - of the three; two have been with a margin of one run. Looking at their last ten games, the combined total run has been more than 9.5 for eight of those games.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Looking at the history of these two teams, it is very evident that the Dodgers are far more superior to the Diamondbacks; hence we'll give them a straight win.

But we’re going to spice things a little bit. In addition to the straight win, we’ll give this match a total of 9+ runs. Also, we’ll tip the Dodgers to win by a margin of 1.5+ runs.

Arizona DiamondbacksOur choice: the Dodgers to win with a margin of 1.5+ runs

As we have already seen, this is one of those clashes where one team comes with all guns blazing and with so much confidence to win the match. The Diamondbacks are clearly the superior team. That can be seen from their high ranking in the MLB table and the consistent results they have shown.

On the other hand, the Diamondbacks have had a horrible season. They sit at the bottom of the table, and they don’t have so much to gain from winning this clash.

Therefore, we tip the Dodgers to win. But if you want to add a little bit of risk into your bet, bet on the total of runs to be 9+ & the Dodgers to win by two or more runs.
