Arizona Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Prediction

The LA Dodgers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're the Dodgers, and they're at home. However, the Diamondbacks have a clear edge on the mound with Gallen, and you don't get him often in the underdog role. Yes, Gallen has had issues on the road, and he hasn't pitched a lot over the last month, but he's still one of the best pitchers in the league when he's on. The jury is still out on Knack and his small sample size. You can never go wrong getting an all star caliber pitcher and plus money. Give me the Arizona Diamondbacks.
