Diamondbacks sweep Giants
Arizona is coming off a three-game sweep at San Francisco, winning all three games by at least four runs. The Diamondbacks are 28-25 on the season, 17-12 on the road and 27-24 with the over. Arizona has Zack Greinke on the mound today. He is 6-2 on the season with a 2.89 ERA.
The Diamondbacks are putting up 5.28 runs per game this season while hitting .259 as a team, both of which rank near the top of the league. On the mound, Arizona has a 4.07 team ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Eduardo Escobar is leading the team with 13 doubles, 12 home runs and 39 RBI while Ketel Marte had 11 doubles, 12 home runs and 37 RBI.
Rockies looking for win streak
Colorado is coming off a series win over the Orioles at home, but they haven’t been able to sustain winning streaks for long. The Rockies are 24-27 on the season, 11-12 at home and 29-20 with the over. Colorado has Jon Gray taking the mound today. He is 4-4 on the season with a 4.62 ERA.
The Rockies are averaging 5.27 runs per game while hitting .257 as a team this season. Pitching-wise, Colorado has a 5.15 team ERA and a 1.43 team WHIP. Charlie Blackmon has 13 doubles, five triples, 10 home runs and 31 RBI this year, but he is questionable to play today with a calf injury. Nolan Arenado is leading the team with 14 doubles, 15 home runs and 44 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks are 11-5 in their last 16 games following a win and 7-3 in Greinke’s last 10 starts.
The Rockies are 5-2 in their last seven home games and 4-1 in their last five series openers.
Arizona has already won two of three in Colorado this season. Today the D’Backs get to face off against Gray, who has allowed at least three runs in five straight starts. Greinke is coming off a 3-run outing at San Diego, but he has gotten at least seven innings in three straight starts and five of his last six. Arizona has slightly better hitting, but their pitching is far superior to Colorado. I like the starting matching for them today as well. Go with the D’Backs.
MLB Prediction: Arizona Diamondbacks +105
