Despite their inconsistencies so far this MLB betting season, the Arizona Diamondbacks have managed to stay in contention in the National League West right behind the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants in the division race. With the crowd competing at the top of the NL Central and the Atlanta Braves battling hard to catch up to the Philadelphia Phillies it is obvious that the only way in to the playoffs for the Diamondbacks is through the NL West, where they will look to continue their strong play against another division rival.

The Diamondbacks have had no trouble scoring runs so far this season, but they will need more consistency from the starting rotation and bullpen in order to be able to sit on some of the early leads that they will build the rest of the way. That will continue on Friday when they send young Josh Collmenter to the mound to take on veteran Ted Lilly for the Dodgers, a starting matchup that should favor Arizona. Collmenter is 6-5 with a 2.74 ERA, and has pitched some of his best baseball in the month of July with just three earned runs allowed through his past three starts. Lilly on the other hand has been a model of inconsistency so far this season with a bloated 5.08 ERA, and he has allowed 10 earned runs through his past two starts to fall to 6-10 on the year.

Looking for more help in the rotation, Arizona will turn to Micah Owings from the bullpen to make his fourth sports betting start on the year. Owings has done an excellent job by keeping his ERA down to 2.36, and if he can maintain that average then it won’t be a surprise to see the Diamondbacks turn to him more often as a starter. Los Angeles will send Chad Billingsley to the mound on Saturday, and although he hasn’t been that bad, he also hasn’t been as good as Owings, and that doesn’t bode well for a Dodgers’ team that hasn’t played well at home this season.

The series will wrap up with an earlier start, as Joe Saunders gets the call on Sunday against Rubby De La Rosa for the Dodgers. De La Rosa has spent the majority of the season in the bullpen although he has started nine games, and he has actually been pretty good in allowing just three earned runs through his past three starts. There has been a ton of issues surrounding the Dodgers’ organization so far this season, but if De La Rosa can bring his best stuff they should have a sports betting bonus distraction for at least one afternoon.
