The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. 

Diamondbacks Betting Preview

The Diamondbacks might not have a complete turnaround this season, but this looks like a team that is moving in the right direction. One of the big trades this offseason was sending Daulton Varsho to Toronto in exchange for Gabriel Moreno. Corbin Carroll looks to be a breakout star, and there are many who believe he could be a rookie of the year candidate. Catcher Carson Kelly is dealing with a broken arm and is out. Getting the start for the D-Backs will be Zac Gallen who finished last year with a 12-4 record and an ERA of 2.54. 

Dodgers Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who have high expectations for this season, and anything less than a World Series title is a disappointment for this team. This team looks a whole lot different from last season. Gone is Cody Bellinger, Trea Turner, and Justin Turner, but the expectations are still for a title. Freddie Freeman is dealing with a hamstring injury but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to go in this game. On the mound for the Dodgers will be Julio Urias who finished last season with a 7-0 record and an ERA of 2.16. 

Diamondbacks vs Dodgers Trends

The Dodgers are 11-0 in Urias' last 11 Thursday starts. The Diamondbacks are 1-5 in their last six games against a left handed starter. The under is 4-0 in the DIamondbacks' last four games on Thursday. The under is 3-0-1 in Urias last four games overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Urias last four games on grass. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This game is going to be a pitcher's duel. Urias was lights out all season and the Diamondbacks are going to struggle to get anything going. The Dodgers offense is still going to be good, but not as good as last year, and that is going to lead to them really struggling to get many hits off of Gallen. Both teams' bats are going to be ice cold and this game is going to stay under the total. 

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