Diamondbacks at Dodgers picks and predictions
Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 3
The Diamondbacks have the second-lowest starting pitcher ERA in the league at 2.51, but the Dodgers are No. 1 at 2.45.
The Diamondbacks went 1-9 at Dodger Stadium last year.
The Dodgers are 11-5 at home this season and have not lost a Gonsolin home start this season.
However, the price to bet the Dodgers on the money line isn't worth the money as a single bet. PASS

The Dodgers failed to cover the spread in a victory Sunday for the first time all year. Twenty of their 21 wins this season have been by at least 2 runs. They picked up a 1-run win Sunday against the Phillies.
The Diamondbacks are 20-15 ATS overall this season and 9-5 ATS on the road.
However, their bullpen has faltered the last 2 games, making it hard to hold leads their starters give them.
Take the DODGERS -1.5 (-112).
Seven of the Diamondbacks' last 9 games have had fewer than 9 runs. All 3 games between these teams in Arizona last month had no more than 7 runs.
Both starters have been lights out. A pitching duel is in short order, at least until the bullpens come out.
It will get close, but take UNDER 8.5 (-120).
