MLB Betting Trends
Arizona has now dropped six straight on the road and they have lost their last five Wednesday games. They also have lost Godley’s last four starts when on four days of rest.
The Brewers have won 12 of their last 14 against NL West opponents and they also have won 10 of their last 13 games at home.
You just can’t really go with Arizona right now. Their hitting has been letting them down too often. Milwaukee isn’t lightning the world on fire at the plate right now, but their pitching is strong enough to completely shut down the Diamondbacks.
