Zac GAllen (14-5, ERA: 3.11) vs Bobby Miller (0-0, ERA: 3.86)

Zac Gallen will be the starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks on Monday night; he has a 3.11 ERA to go along with a 14-5 starting record. Arizona has been a fringe top-ten team at the plate this season, ranking 10th with 8.6 hits per game. Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker has been having an impressive year. He leads his squad with 28 home runs and 86 RBI through 126 games.


The Dodgers will send Bobby Miller to the mound on Monday night; he has a 9-3 record and a 3.86 ERA. This season the Dodgers score the second most runs in the MLB at 5.6 runs per game. Mookie Betts leads Los Angeles with 34 home runs and 90 RBI, while Freddie Freeman is close behind with 86 RBI.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: Los Angeles Dodgers -140, Total Odds: 8.5

This is going to be a crucial test for Gallen and Arizona. The D-Backs wish to prove they belong, and now it’s time to show up. The Arizona starter faced LA at Dodger Stadium in March, surrendering five runs in 4.2 innings. He must pitch much better on Monday to lead his club to victory. Los Angeles is hitting .282 BA/.357 OBP/.467 SLG/.824 OPS this month, winning 20 of 24 games. Its post-All-Star break stats (.275/.357/.451/.808) are better than its first half stats (.244/.330/.455/.786), too. Gallen has not pitched well on the road this season, posting a 4.46 ERA in 14 outings.


Miller faces an Arizona team he should feel comfortable against, as he just held the D-Backs to one run on August 9. I feel confident that he will build off that successful outing on Monday, putting the Diamondbacks in their place. LA has the highest home winning percentage in MLB (67.2%) and a 43-19 record as home favorites. It’s also 23-12 against the NL West competition this season.
