MLB Betting Look at the LA Dodgers vs. D-Backs

April 12th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

MLB betting on Friday is expected to feature a great pitching matchup as the Los Angeles Dodgers visit the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers are scheduled to throw Clayton Kershaw while the Diamondbacks counter with Dan Haren. Gamblers who bet on MLB might want to consider the under in this game.


MLB betting lines have this game listed as the first of a three-game series between the two teams. The Dodgers have won 14 of the last 20 meetings between the two teams as MLB betting stats indicate. Los Angeles has won 6 of the last 10 in MLB betting at Arizona.

Looking at the MLB betting total at the online sportsbook we see that 7 of the last 10 between the two teams at Arizona have gone over. That is somewhat surprising considering most of the games at L.A. go under the MLB betting total when these two teams meet.

Kershaw comes into this MLB betting matchup at 8-6 with a 2.73 ERA. Haren is 11-7 with a 2.57 ERA as MLB betting stats indicate. Kershaw struck out 10 in his last outing against the Braves and gave up just two hits but couldn’t get the win. He does not have a decision in his career against the Diamondbacks as MLB betting numbers show but he has a nice ERA of 2.70.

Haren was looking like a possible Cy Young winner earlier in the year but since the All-Star break he has been a bust. He has given up 16 runs in his last 23 innings as online betting numbers show.

These two teams met early in April in Arizona and the Dodgers won two of the three. Two of those three games went over the MLB betting total at the online sportsbook.

The Dodgers have been pretty good on the road in baseball this season. Los Angeles has been good everywhere though for gamblers who bet on MLB action. Los Angeles is in the Top 10 in runs scored and second in the league in runs allowed as MLB betting tells us.

The Diamondbacks have not been a good home team this season and gamblers who bet on MLB games may want to avoid them in most situations even with Haren on the mound.
