Dodgers vs Diamondbacks: Latest Betting Odds, Predictions and Picks for September 20 (Game 1)

The Dodgers just keep winning, kicking off the five-game series against Arizona with a 5-2 win on Monday night.

Tuesday gets a little bit harder, as Los Angeles and Arizona will play a day/night doubleheader and L.A. has two rookies slated to pitch in the opening game. Michael Grove will be the starter, making his fourth career start, and he’ll be piggybacked by Ryan Pepiot, who is being called up as the extra player on the roster for the doubleheader.

The DBacks will counter with Zach Davies, who has a 6.27 ERA in four starts against the Dodgers this year. Davies’ last start was his best against L.A. this year, allowing just two runs in 5.1 innings, but that was against the Dodgers’ hangover lineup the day after they clinched the NL West. He’s likely to face a few more excellent hitters today.
