Dodgers vs Diamondbacks Predictions

Dodgers vs Diamondbacks Predictions

The Los Angeles Dodgers have taken over the top spot in the NL West, a spot that was previously owned by the Arizona Diamondbacks. But the Diamondbacks have really struggled of late, as they have dropped way down to third place in the standings in this division. But a win over the Dodgers in this matchup could not only pull the Diamondbacks a game closer to recovery but end a pretty nasty losing streak in the process.

Los Angeles Dodgers Predictions

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into Wednesday night with a record of 66-46, which is the second-best in the National League. They hold a five-game lead on the San Francisco Giants and a 10-game lead on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the division as well. Here, the Dodgers will look to extend their lead over the rest of the NL West with a win over the struggling D-Backs.

There is a problem for the Dodgers going into this game, as they are at a pitching disadvantage going into this matchup. Bobby Miller has a 6-2 record going into this game, but he has a 4.26 ERA and has had his ups and downs coming into this matchup. His numbers do not compare favorably to Merrill Kelly of the Diamondbacks, meaning that Miller will really need to step things up in order to help his team win here.

On the bright side, the Dodgers have an advantage on offense over the Diamondbacks that could help them win this contest. Los Angeles ranks second in the major leagues in runs scored this season, and are always capable of a breakout game. After scoring five runs in their win over the Diamondbacks on Monday, the Dodgers will look to put forth an even stronger showing offensively in this one.

Arizona Diamondbacks Predictions

The Arizona Diamondbacks come into this game against the Dodgers with a record of 57-57, dropping to .500 for the season after a loss on Monday night. Arizona has lost seven games in a row, as they went from NL West contenders to a team just trying to work their way back into Wild Card contention. To break their losing streak in this game, they will need a great performance out of starting pitcher Merrill Kelly.

Kelly comes into this game with a record of 9-5 and an ERA of 3.21 in 112 innings of work for the season. While Zac Gallen has received the bulk of the attention on this Arizona pitching staff this season, Kelly has been a very strong number-two arm for this franchise in 2023. But he faces a tough test here, as he goes up against a Dodgers team that is one of the most dangerous offensive teams in the league.

A big concern for the Dodgers coming into this contest is their lack of consistency when playing at home. The Diamondbacks are just 28-29 in home games this season, as they have failed to take advantage of the occasions that they have hosted games. Arizona can no longer afford to give away home games, as their playoff hopes dim by the day, and their losing streak has continued to grow.
