Los Angeles Dodgers

After finishing up their opening series versus the San Francisco Giants with back-to-back wins, the Dodgers enter this evening’s matchup with a 2-2 record. By the looks of it, the evening’s online MLB betting odds are predicting a 3rd-straight win for the Dodgers. Coming off a season in which they lost the World Series, it wouldn’t be all that shocking to see Los Angeles establish an early season lead. However, getting to the World Series once again will be another story entirely. The Dodgers will be sending Hyun-Jin Ryu to the mound this evening. Ryu is a left handed pitcher who will be making his 2018 debut this evening.

Players to Watch: Cody Bellinger (1 HR, .154 BA, 2 RBI), Chris Taylor (.267 BA, .313 OBP, .467 SLG), and Enrique Hernandez (3 RBI, 0 HR, .333 BA).

Arizona Diamondbacks

It had been 5-seasons since Arizona found their way into the playoffs. However, the Diamondbacks didn’t hesitate to snap that drought last season. By winning the National League Wild Card, Arizona was able to advance to the NLDS. Interestingly enough, the Diamondbacks would be eliminated by the Dodgers in that postseason series. Now, facing the opportunity to avenge last year’s playoff dismissal, Arizona will be looking to make a bold statement this evening. To help accentuate that statement, Arizona will be sending Taijuan Walker to the mound this evening. Walker is a right handed pitcher who will be making his first start of the season this evening.

Players to Watch: Nick Ahmed (1 HR, .455 BA, 6 RBI), Chris Owings (.600 BA, .667 OBP, 1 RBI), and Deven Marrero (.500 BA, .500 OBP, 1 RBI).
