Saturday night brings us game two of an enticing series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels, with both squads looking to string together a slew of wins as we head toward the All-Star break.
Arizona has slowed down a bit over the last few weeks. Even though they have gone 5-5 in their last ten games, bringing them to 49-34 on the year, it is still good for first place in the NL West by a mere two games above the Los Angeles Dodgers. After losing their prior series to the Tampa Bay Rays on their home field, they will have been thrilled with their performance in yesterday’s game, winning by a score of 6-2. In that game, there was no outburst from either team on the offensive side, as both teams combined for nine hits, but the Diamondbacks were able to string together a few big hits at the key moments to pull away early. Looking forward to tonight’s encounter, Arizona will put their hopes in Ryne Nelson’s hands to keep the Angels' offense from exploding. Even though he has looked mighty shaky all season long, he had his best outing yet in his last appearance, throwing seven strong innings while only allowing one earned run. Can he repeat that performance against a potent offense tonight?

Los Angeles has looked flat-out uninterested in their last ten games, going 3-7 over that stretch and losing their last three games. If they are to get back on the right track and contend for the AL West Division as we make our way into the second half of the campaign, they will need a far better effort from top to bottom. At the moment, what is killing them the most is their pitching. Over their last three games, their pitching staff has let up 26 runs. That kind of output is not going to cut it in any circumstance if they are to be taken seriously over the last eighty or so games left. Tonight, they will put out veteran left-hander, Tyler Anderson on the bump. After an outstanding year with the Dodgers in 2022, he has fallen back to earth in 2023, more than doubling the ERA he finished with last year at the moment. Can he be the man to stop the bleeding for the Angels?
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- The over is 22-16-1 when the Diamondbacks have been on the road
- Los Angeles is 3-7 in their last ten games
- Arizona is 25-14 on the road
By looking at these two starting pitchers that are going for the D-Backs and Angels tonight, it doesn’t take a genius to notice that we are going to be seeing a plethora of run opportunities all night long. This bodes well for two offensive teams that can put up runs with the best of them in the MLB. Give me the over as I see this smashing with ease with two below-par pitchers on the mound!
