Arizona unable to win back-to-back

After a 7-1 win on Friday, the Diamondbacks responded with a 3-0 loss on Saturday. It was their 14th loss in 16 games. Arizona is now 26-25 overall and 12-13 on the road. The Diamondbacks are averaging just 3.67 runs per game this season while allowing 3.57 per contest.

Zack Greinke gets the start for the Diamondbacks today. He has started 10 games this season and has a 3-3 record with a 3.71 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Greinke has pitched a total of 60.2 innings and has 67 strikeouts with just seven walks.

Oakland bounces back

The Athletics bounced back from Friday’s loss with the 3-0 win on Saturday. The Athletics have won six of their last nine games. Oakland is now 27-25 overall with a 13-12 record at home. The Athletics are putting up 4.46 runs per game this year while allowing 4.54 per contest.

Frankie Montas gets the start for the Athletics today. He is making his 2018 debut today. Last season, he pitched in 23 games and has a 1-1 record as a reliever with a 7.03 ERA and 1.84 WHIP.

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

Arizona is just 1-8 in their last nine road games and 1-11 in their last 12 games against a right-handed starter.

Oakland

Oakland is 7-1 in its last eight games against a right-handed starter, but just 11-23 in their last 34 interleague games.

Prediction:

While the Diamondbacks have struggles for the past few weeks, Greinke has been pretty strong on the mound. Oakland has been in somewhat of a hitting funk, so I think that opens the door for Arizona to get the win. Montas hasn’t pitched this year, so Arizona’s hitters should have some success at the plate.

 

The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks +105
