Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin

David Peralta went 1-for-3 and worked a base-on-balls during Wednesday's win over the Phillies. This game was a pitcher's duel without much action on the bases for either side. The Diamondbacks were able to eke out a pair of runs in the fifth inning for the only scoring of the ballgame. Peralta continues to be an unsung fantasy stalwart again this year. He has a very solid .298/.351/.518 slash line with nine home runs and 36 RBI in 55 games. His counting stats are down a little bit because of a two-week stint on the disabled list with a shoulder ailment. As a batter who can hit for average and power he is a rare breed around baseball these days. Last year he had a .293 batting average with 30 home runs and 87 RBI and he will probably end up in the same neighborhood again this season.

Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in a loss to the White Sox on Tuesday. Rendon provided bookends for the Nationals' scoring on the evening, socking a two-run homer in the first inning before blasting a solo shot in the ninth. The homers give him 14 jacks on the year, and the 29-year-old has 46 RBI and 48 runs scored through 53 games. Rendon is hitting a robust .320/.422/.655 overall.

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 4-1 in their last five road games versus a right-handed starter.

Washington

The Nationals are 12-5 in their last 17 games overall and 5-1 in their last six home games.

Prediction:

The Nationals are 2-5 in Erick Fedde’s last seven starts and have dropped eight of his last nine at home. The Diamondbacks, meanwhile, are 9-4 in Zack Greinke’s last 13 outings and have won 17 of his last 25 road starts when facing an opponent with a losing record. This isn’t a bad price on Arizona given its advantage in the pitching matchup.

Thursday MLB Prediction: Arizona Diamondbacks -125
