Betting Odds: Diamondbacks ML (+125) - Over/Under (9.5)
Pick: Diamondbacks ML (+125)
The Los Angeles Dodgers will hit the road to Arizona to play the Arizona Diamondbacks in the third game of this National League Division Series here on Wednesday night. This will be a win or go home game for Los Angeles, because if they lose their season will officially be over and the Arizona Diamondbacks would advance to the National League Championship Series. The first two games of this series have been close and competitive throughout the game and it’ll be interesting to see if game number three follows that same trend here on Wednesday evening in Arizona.
The Los Angeles Dodgers had a fantastic regular season, but it seems as if the week off between the end of the regular season, and the length of the wildcard series has hurt the Dodgers. As they have looked sluggish throughout the opening two games of this series, and they will be looking to recover here on Wednesday night and if they don’t, then it’ll be the end of the season for a team that is likely favored to win the World Series, coming out of the National League alongside of the Atlanta Braves. In fact, all four teams finished as the top two seeds, and their respective leagues have struggled throughout the opening games of this series, and it seems like they could rearrange the playoff format, if this becomes a trend over the next several years.
Los Angeles will have to be a lot more consistent at the plate in this game after being shut out by potential National League Cy Young award winner Zac Gallen on Monday in game number two of the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. They will have to find a way to get to the Diamondbacks early after Arizona has put up early, runs on them in the opening two games of the series on the road, and they will have to find a way to win the following two games on the road if they want to make it back to Los Angeles for Game five later this week. They will have to play their best baseball of the season coming down the final stretch of the year if they want to survive and keep their hopes alive at winning another National League pennant.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have looked fantastic throughout the first two games of this series, and they will be looking to keep the momentum rolling here on Wednesday night at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Arizona is one victory away from advancing to the National League Championship Series after beating Los Angeles over the opening two games of the series throughout the past several days. Arizona is getting hot at the right time which could lead them to making their first World Series since 2001 when they defeated the New York Yankees in seven games. They will have to rely on more timely hitting coming into this game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Diamondbacks have been tough to beat at home this season, and they will be looking to shut the door on the Los Angeles Dodgers at home over the next two games and they have two huge opportunities to do so. They could potentially have Merrill Kelly on the mound for game four which would lead them back to Zac Gallen for game five of the series if it were to go the distance. That gives the Arizona Diamondbacks a massive advantage throughout the remainder of this series, but they will be hoping it does not get to that point, and they can shut down Los Angeles here tonight to advance to the National League Championship Series against the winner of the series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Atlanta Braves.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Arizona is 50-37 after a win this season
- Arizona is 43-38 at home this season
- Arizona is 13-10 after a day off this season
I look for this to be a close and competitive game between both of these teams here on Wednesday night in Arizona but in the end, I think the Arizona Diamondbacks will complete the sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers and advance to the next round of the postseason with a quality victory at Chase Field.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
