Arizona Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Gavin Stone dominated in the last game giving up only one run and hes going to dominate again here for the Dodgers. Pfaadt gave up only one run in his last start and he’s going to also step up in here. Both of the offenses are going to struggle to get off the ground here, and that will be the difference here. This game is going to be lower scoring, and the under is going to cash here with ease.
