We’re riding the heat (Dodgers offense) and fading Zach Davies (Arizona Pitcher).
LA’s resting Justin Turner, Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger today, but their 3 best bats are IN, namely Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner. That spells trouble for Zach Davies who allowed 3+ runs in 3 straight starts – all within the first 5 innings – and is coming off his worst start of the year.
This will be the Dodgers 3rd time seeing Davies this year, and familiarity tends to favor offense. In the first matchup, they scored 3 runs. The second they tagged him for 5.
Betting the Dodgers to score 3+ runs in the First 5 innings is:
- 9-2 in their last 11 games
- 8-2 in 10 games vs. Arizona this season
- 11-4 in their last 15 games at Chase Field
This bet is available at DraftKings Sportsbook for -140 odds at time of writing. If you use their 25% Memorial Day Profit Boost promo, you can bet this for -112. I like the value at that price and bet to win 1 unit.
