The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Thursday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing 5 of their last 7 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 7 of their last 10 games. 

The Arizona Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 9 games. The Diamondbacks have won 4 of their last 5 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Christian Walker leads the Diamondbacks with 125 hits and 84 RBI, while Daulton Varsho and Ketel Marte have combined for 233 hits and 123 RBI. Zac Gallen gets the ball, and he is 12-3 with a 2.52 ERA and 167 strikeouts this season. Gallen is 1-2 with a 2.51 ERA and 52 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 9 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 9 of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have won 9 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Dodgers with 189 hits and 94 RBI, while Trea Turner and Mookie Betts have combined for 324 hits and 175 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 17-7 with a 2.27 ERA and 152 strikeouts this season. Urias is 7-1 with a 1.54 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last 4 Thursday games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Dodgers are 70-21 in their last 91 home games and 58-17 in their last 75 overall. The under is 8-2 in Diamondbacks last 10 overall. The under is 7-2 in Dodgers last 9 overall. The Diamondbacks are 18-59 in the last 77 meetings in Los Angeles and 12-40 in the last 52 meetings.

As usual, the Los Angeles Dodgers deserve to be favorites against pretty much anybody, especially at home. Julio Urias has also been lights out this season, so it's hard to bet against the Dodgers here. With that said, the Arizona Diamondbacks have had success in this series, and we're getting big plus money with Zac Gallen on the mound. Gallen has a 2.52 ERA and 0.92 WHIP on the season, and he's allowed just 8 runs in his last 58.1 innings. The value is with the Diamondbacks and the plus money.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
