PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public is backing the Diamondbacks today. Arizona is currently getting 53 percent of the wagers for this game as the home favorite against the Rockies.

KEY INJURIES

Arizona doesn’t have any hitters listed on the injury report for this game while Colorado has shortstop Pat Valaika as questionable with an oblique injury. He hit .258 for the Rockies last season over 110 games and produced 11 doubles, 13 home runs and 40 RBI.

BETTING STRATEGIES

Arizona picked up an 8-2 win over the Rockies on Thursday for its fourth straight victory over Colorado. The Diamondbacks racked up eight runs on 12 hits. Jake Lamb drove in four runs on two hits while David Peralta had three hits with two runs. Patrick Corbin got the win and pitched 5.2 innings, allowing the two runs with eight strikeouts.

Jon Gray allowed three runs over four innings to take the loss for Colorado. The bullpen then allowed another five runs. Chris Iannetta had three hits to lead the Rockies while Nolan Arenado had two hits and drove in a run.

Dating back to last season, Colorado has not been able to produce at the plate when on the road like it has at home. It showed up again on Thursday and now they face a top Arizona pitcher in Ray. Anderson hasn’t been anything special on the road, so look for the Diamondbacks to put up another high total at the plate.
