Dodgers vs Diamondbacks: Latest Betting Odds, Predictions and Picks for September 21

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks split a doubleheader on Tuesday, so they head into game four of this five-game series with the Dodgers holding a 2-1 lead. The Dodgers played pretty ugly yesterday, needing a huge five-run rally in the eighth inning to win the first game, then committing four errors in losing the nightcap. Los Angeles allowed five unearned runs between the two games.

Dustin May takes the mound for the Dodgers today, pitching on four days rest for the first time since returning from Tommy John surgery. May threw 69 pitches in five no-hit innings in San Francisco on Friday after having his start pushed back a day or two because of a little residual soreness after his previous start.

Old foe Madison Bumgarner will take the mound for the Diamondbacks, looking to turn around a season that’s gone off the rails for him. In his last nine starts, Bumgarner has allowed 42 earned runs in 48.1 innings for a 7.82 ERA. In two starts against L.A. this year, Bum has allowed eight runs in 11 innings, a 6.55 ERA.
