Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin

Ketel Marte went 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk on Wednesday against the Rockies. The homer was the only run scored against Tim Melville on Wednesday -- yes, you read that right, Tim Melville -- and it's the 27th homer of the season for the 25-year-old. The homer and walk now have Marte slashing .319/.384/.571 over 122 games, and he's driven in 73 runs.

Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Mike Moustakas hit a three-run homer and walked three times as the Brewers beat the Cardinals 5-3 in a rain-shortened game Wednesday. The game was called in the eighth after an hour-long delay. Moustakas's homer off Adam Wainwright gave him 31 this season. He's shaken off his late July-early August drought with four homers and 11 RBI in his last four games.

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are just 2-7 in Merrill Kelly’s last night starts.

Milwaukee

The Brewers have won four straight home games when facing a team starting a right-hander.

Prediction:

The Diamondbacks haven’t been profitable with Kelly on the hill but their offense is underrated and Miller Park is one of the better hitting environments in baseball. While the Diamondbacks are 12-4 in their last 16 games following an off day, the Brewers have dropped eight of their last 10 games following a day off. Milwaukee has also dropped five of its last seven games when playing the opener of a series and is 4-10 in its last 14 games played on Friday.

The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks +128
