LA Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks prediction

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been underwhelming up to this point, and there's no way I can back Tommy Henry given how his first two starts at home have gone. James Paxton has had issues with control this season, but he's been able to limit the damage and gives the Dodgers a chance to win. This is also a fairly cheap price given what we're used to seeing the Dodgers priced at. I want little to do with the Diamondbacks in this spot. Give me the Dodgers to draw first blood in this NL West series.
